What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that is non-invasive and reinforces change in your brain functions. This is done by studying the information (or feedback) provided by your brainwaves (neuro).* By utilizing this method, you will be able to self-regulate your brain functions and one of the biggest tasks is to calm your nervous system to lessen specific symptoms. If you cannot self-regulate, problems will continue to happen within your central nervous system. This can range from anxiety, depression and even certain physical symptoms.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback helps you gain control over involuntary functions like heart rate, skin temperature and blood pressure. The process begins by attaching electrical sensors are attached to your skin to measure information (feedback) about your body (bio). By recording and testing, the goal is to help you learn how to control your subtle contractions and relaxations of muscles to reduce stress. By taking control of your body, you will have an improved state of health.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG is a quantitative electroencephalogram (also known as brain mapping) is an analysis of the electrical activity of the brain to study quantitative patterns that may relate to cognitive deficits. Quantitative EEG’s are computer analysis of an EEG, and EEG’s data is usually compared against a database consisting of numerous EEGs from other individuals. Specific patterns may be signs of depression, anxiety and other diagnostics. A QEEG chart will be a treatment plan and can help you on your road to health.*

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?

The process of Neurofeedback involves helping an individual modify their own brainwave activity. With the help of computers, we can monitor brain functions and waves of our clients. Then, we can train them to increase or reduce brainwave frequencies and rewarding the brain for changing its activity. Through reinforcements and rewards, new electrical activity can be produced in the brain and the brainwave activity can be “shaped” toward a desired performance. This will lead to reduced symptoms and a more self-regulated brain.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The process of Neurofeedback involves conducting a QEEG brain map. This means that we will record and analyze statistics through an EEG. Dr. Roseann will then study your results and figure out what is causing your condition. She will craft a plan of action and we will immediately begin your neurofeedback sessions. These sessions involve placing sensors on your scalp and ears while you receive brainwave reinforcement from watching a movie. Your sessions will range from 20-100.* Most patients will come in twice a week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

For those living in the Poughkeepsie area, we ask that you call our Ridgefield office and schedule your QEEG brain map. If you would like to attend information sessions about Neurofeedback, – Click Here – for more information. 

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

When your QEEG is conducted, Dr. Roseann will look at your results and make recommendations on the treatment that you should undergo. Based on your QEEG results and clinical intake, she will tell you which therapy or therapies will help you the most. We care about all of our Poughkeepsie residents and we want to assist them with our non-medicated and noninvasive therapies.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor your 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 has thousands of research studies that have been done over the past 40 years. In 2013, the American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness for the treatment of ADHD, typing first place with medication.
