What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is the process of analyzing the information (feedback) sent by the brainwaves (neuro) and using this data to reinforce positive changes. It is both non-invasive and safe. Since it is the brain’s duty to self-regulate the nervous system to calm and lessen symptoms, a lack of this self-regulation can cause issues within the central nervous system. Depression, anxiety and even physical symptoms can arise if the brain cannot self-regulate.*

What is Biofeedback?

Unlike Neurofeedback, Biofeedback focuses on autonomic functions of the body. Learning to control bodily functions such as skin temperature, and heart rate is the aim of Biofeedback. Electrical sensors are placed onto patients to gather data (feedback) about the body (bio). Dr. Roseann pays attention to the small changes, with the intention of you learning to control the subtle contractions and relaxations of your muscles. Taking back your body can improve your health state*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) Brain Map is the measured electrical patterns on the surface of the scalp that reflect cortical activity. The EEG data is compared against a large database of other EEG results. Some patterns are associated with depression, another may be anxiety, and so on. A QEEG is the first step in a treatment plan and assists in the process of overcoming your condition.*

My husband and I have two special needs children and are very involved in their education. We only use the best providers and Dr. Roseann is simply the best. From evaluations to neurofeedback to parent coaching, she has been there for my family. She is so knowledgeable and experienced in so many areas and we know that we can always run anything by her.  One of our children has Autism and PANS with significant communication and behavioral issues and Dr. Roseann and her staff have always given us the most loving care and work to support his sensory needs. I can’t recommend Dr. Roseann and Associates more highly.

Dr. Roseann literally saved my daughter’s life. Through testing, her team identified that she had Dyslexia and get her the right supports at school. The care that she and we received from the staff and her therapist over the years has been a lifeline.

The 360 Reboot program turned my daughter’s life around. She had been plagued with anxiety her whole life and never responded to regular talk therapy. With intensive neurofeedback, biofeedback, psychotherapy, and parent coaching, she was able to break the anxiety cycle. She is a happy young adult and we couldn’t be prouder of her and more grateful for the staff at Dr. Roseann and Associates.

As an educator myself, I had seen several of my students make positive and often dramatic changes after going to Dr. Roseann’s center. When my son started having problems at school paying attention, I knew that my husband and I wanted Dr. Roseann’s experienced care. She was spot on in diagnosing the issues with the brain map and walked us through the step by step process of what we needed to do. Our son and family have benefited so much from the center’s help. He never needed medication and with neurofeedback and dietary changes, he became the best person he could be. It has been several years and my son is now thriving in college.

As a therapist myself, I knew that Dr. Roseann is one of the top mental health experts on PANS/PANDAS and Lyme Disease. So when I became sick, she was the first person I called for help. She was able to connect me with the right Lyme medical experts so I could get treatment. I was very lucky that the biofeedback and BRT at the center started helping my headaches and anxiety immediately. I am about 90 percent better and I wouldn’t be feeling so great if it weren't for Dr. Roseann.

After my son with ADHD and anxiety had terrible reactions to medications, we went to Dr. Roseann on the recommendation of our pediatrician. She helped us to understand why his brain and body was reacting to medication and why he was experiencing anxiety, focus, and impulse control issues. After 10 years of many therapists and psychiatrists, we finally saw some major change in on our son with neurofeedback, BRT, and counseling. His therapist helped him and us improve his executive functioning and alertness. It was scary to see him suffer so much on ADHS medications and I am so glad he is happy and our home life isn’t so stressful.

As a family highly impacted by the 12-14 tragedy in Sandy Hook, Dr. Roseann and staff has given us help over the years. From learning how to use EFT/Tapping to manage our anxiety to neurofeedback, everyone in our family has been helped. We learned so much about how trauma impacts the brain and the neuroscience part of stress, anxiety, and trauma. When confronted with such stress, you can’t imagine things will get better, but they did with their help.

As a physician, I knew exactly where to take my son for the best possible mental health care. My son was so anxious from an undiagnosed learning disability and a poor school program. Dr. Roseann evaluated my son and gave us recommendations that were so specific, we could after many years of pushing and prodding the school, finally get him the right program at school. Her center was able to provide all the therapies he needed to improve his cognitive processing speed and reduce anxiety with the highest level of clinical care.

Our adult daughter had treatment resistant depression and was suffering when we came to Dr. Roseann’s center. Even though other therapists had turned us away, her team supported our daughter in a way that we had never experienced. With intensive counseling and neurofeedback, she was able to not be anxious for the first time in her life and her depression stopped.

Our time with Dr. Roseann and her staff during our 360 Reboot intensive therapies program was special. Our little guy gained so many skills in a short time and we received so much education about his needs and what we needed to do along the developmental spectrum to keep him growing in the right direction. We wish we had found her center sooner!

Dr. Roseann treated my ADHD when I was a teenager after my parents tried medications for years on me. I hated every minute of those medications and I felt so irritated all the time. After about 18 sessions, it was like my brain shifted and I woke up from a fog. It has been 6 years since I finished neurofeedback and my attention is awesome!

You have accomplished wonders for my grandson. He is now the child he was always meant to be. Your program was the best investment in his life. I worked with so many young college students who struggled with ADHD and I did not want to see that happen to him. I am so happy that he has been able to benefit from the program. I tell everyone with a child who has attention issues that your program works wonders.

Common Neurofeedback & Biofeedback Questions:

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

Neurofeedback is the process of helping you change your brainwave activity for the better. Through technology, we observe brainwaves and functions that give feedback of data back to the patient.Through light discipline, the patient is able to “shape” the brain activity by rewarding positive changes in the brainwave frequency. New electrical activity is produced during this “shaping,” leading to reduced symptoms and better self-regulation of the brain.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

We record and study the norms, statistics and the shape of brainwaves through a quantitative EEG. Dr. Roseann will meet with you and review your brain map, signaling what could be the causes or states of your condition. During consultation, she will form a treatment plan that will best help you and your condition.* Next, you will start your Neurofeedback appointments. Electrical sensors are placed on the surface of the scalp and ears. You will watch a movie while simultaneously receiving brainwave reinforcement. An average treatment plan is about 20-100 sessions, but number of sessions given vary from patient to patient. Most individuals in the Newtown area come twice a week, but your plan will be tailored to best serve you as an individual.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you reside in the greater Newtown area, simply call the office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We offer free Neurofeedback information sessions –Click Here – for more information.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

Once the QEEG is conducted, Dr. Roseann will meet with you to discuss the results. From there, she will make recommendations based on treatments. Based on your QEEG results and clinical intake. She will decide which therapy/therapies should be the next step. We are proud of our non-medication therapies, and would not offer it to the greater Newtown area if we were not.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three ways :

  • Through QEEGs at regular intervals to objectively look at brain functioning.
  • Through data collection at every Neurofeedback session.
  • Through regular customized symptom checklist progress monitoring.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-invasive alternative to medicine. Thousands of research studies conducted over the past 40 years have confirmed that Neurofeedback does not only treat many conditions affecting both children and adults, but that it supports efficacy.* In 2013, the American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, tying with medication.
