What is Neurofeedback?

Our non-invasive known as neurofeedback treatment is totally safe. During the process we study the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro), and work to promote positive changes in brain activitiy.* Naturally, the brain works to correct abnormalities, and regulate the nervous system. At times when this system becomes compromised it can result in symptoms such as anxiety, adhd, and depression. Biofeedback is based on autonomic functions whereas Neurofeedback is based on brain activity.

What is Biofeedback?

By studying biofeedback, our team is able to detect how your body processes systems such as heart rate, skin temp, and breath. Unlike Neurofeedback that is based on brain activity, biofeedback is based on autonomic functions. We hook up sensors to the patient and the sensors provide feedback (information) related to their body (bio) functions. Over a period of time collecting data, we can help encourage your body to change its processing to reduce symptoms such as stress. By giving our patients control they are more equipped to address a range of chronic and acute symptoms.

What is QEEG?

A QEEG is a quantitative electroencephalogram. This machine allows us to measure electrical patterns in the brain through sensors placed on the scalp. After several sessions with a QEEG, we can detect common patterns from the reflected cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a comprehensive computer analysis of this data, in which we compare it to previously collected data from other patients. By comparing patient data to the database we can detect abnormalities, and it can help discern the causes symptoms such as anxiety and adhd. With this information we can more accurately design a worthy treatment program.

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?

Over time we use positive reinforcement techniques to encourage patients to learn to modify their own brainwave activity. We use advanced computers to provide live feedback so patients can watch their own brainwave activity in real time. Our reward system is geared to promote positive brain patterns, and over time this treatment can work to lessen the symptoms resulting from neurological abnormalities. We can help our patients in Orange generate new electrical patterns, and encourage the brain to self-regulate itself. Neurofeedback involves helping a person learn how to modify their own brainwave activity.*

With new state of the art medical technologies we can show patients their brainwave activity in real time. Our treatments work to promote positive electrical patterns. These improved patterns can help patients achieve increased performance. In addition, the brain can learn to subdue symptoms and self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step of the treatment program is to generate a QEEG Brain Map. This map is a survey of the brains electrical patterns to provide insight to the brains functionality. Our team will statistically analyze this data, and following analysis Dr. Roseann will review the information. From this initial survey, Dr. Roseann will develop a complete treatment plan for each of our patients from Orange, and ascertain an estimation of how many sessions the patient will need to undergo to achieve results.* This initial estimate can range depending on the patients needs. Typically our patients require 20-100 sessions, or more. Our patients from Orange typically come in for treatment sessions once to twice a week. During the treatment our patients are set up with sensors on the scalp and ears while receiving brainwave reinforcement.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you live in Orange, please call the office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We also regularly offer free Neurofeedback information sessions – Click Here – for more information.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

From the QEEG data, Dr. Roseann will develop a treatment plan. Once she has reviewed the data, each patient meets with Dr. Roseann to discuss the customized treatment strategy in depth and develop a schedule. We proudly serve Orange residents with these alternative therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three ways :

  • We routinely look at brain functioning
  • We routinely check the personalized symptom checklist
  • All data collected from each session

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave Neurofeedback a Level 1 effectiveness rating in the treatment of ADHD, which is the same effectiveness as medication. Over the past 40 plus years, there have been thousands of research studies supporting its efficacy.
