What is Neurofeedback?

In order to relax the nervous system and relieve symptoms, the brain self-regulates. Without this self-regulation, anxiety, depression, and other physical symptoms can surface. Neurofeedback is a safe, non-invasive form of treatment of studying the information (feedback) of brainwaves (neuro) and reinforcing the change.* Biofeedback differs from Neurofeedback by focusing on autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback differs from neurofeedback in that it controls one’s autonomic functions rather than brain waves. By using biofeedback, one can learn to control their breath, heart rate, skin temperature, or other bodily functions. We use electrical sensors in order to measure and give information (feedback) about the body (bio). We can record the results, thus allowing the patient to learn to control subtle changes. These changes might include relaxing muscles or reducing stress. To have power over your body means you can begin to improve your health.*.

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) brain map is the measurement of electrical patterns on the very surface of the scalp that reflect cortical activity. A quantitative EEG is a computer analysis of the EEG data. This EEG data is compared to a database of a standard set by other people’s EEG so that we can use that database as a reference. Specific patterns can be a sign of depression, anxiety and many more. The QEEG is used both for treatment planning and progress.*

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?

By using Neurofeedback, individuals can learn how to modify their own brainwave activity. Our office an monitor brain functioning using computers, showing that feedback to the client in real time. We help our patients learn the skills needed to promote or reduce different brainwave frequencies and reward the brain for changing its own activity. This results in the brain’s ability to produce more appropriate patterns. Through this reinforcement, new electrical activity is actually produced in the brain, and the brainwave activity is “shaped” into a more desirable, more regulated performance. The brain learns to self-regulate, resulting in reduced symptoms.* How Do I know which therapy I need?

After a QEEG, Dr. Roseann will review your results in person and make recommendations for treatment based on your QEEG results and clinical intake. She designs customized treatments personally suited for each of patients. No one solution applies to every situation, so an in-depth review of the test results is necessary for every patient. The most appropriate therapies will be suggested. We proudly serve Putnam County residents with these alternative therapies.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first step involves conducting a QEEG Brain Map—a procedure where EEG activity is recorded and statistically analyzed. You then meet with Dr. Roseann to review your brain map and create a treatment plan. Once a protocol has been developed, you can immediately begin your Neurofeedback sessions. In these sessions, sensors will be placed on the scalp and ears while getting brainwave reinforcement as you watch a movie. The number of sessions required varies based on each individual, but range from 20 to 100 or more sessions.*  Most individuals from Putnam County visit our office for two appointments per week.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

If you live in Putnam County, please call the office to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. We would be happy to help you with all of your medical needs. Please contact us for more information.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

After we conduct the QEEG, Dr. Roseann will take a look at your results and provide you with recommendations for treatments based on her years of experience. We care about our Brewster, NY patients and we love to provide them with our non-medicated therapies.

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 each Neurofeedback session.
  • Through regular, customized symptom checklist progress monitoring.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-pharmaceutical way to treat a variety of conditions affecting children and adults. Thousands of research studies supporting the efficacy of this alternative treatment have been published during the past 40+ years. In 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating—the same effectiveness as pharmaceutical treatment*—in the treatment of ADHD.*
