What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is safe and non-invasive treatment option that includes studying your brainwaves (neuro) and analyzing the information they provide (feedback) and then reinforcing positive changes.* Through self-regulation the brain can calm the nervous system, leading to a diminishment of symptoms. Without that regulation, a variety of central nervous problems can occur, such as depression, anxiety, or even physical symptoms. A bit different than Neurofeedback, Biofeedback specifically targets autonomic functions.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback utilizes a person’s bodily functions like heart rate, breath, or skin temperature, and attempts to consciously control them as a form of therapy. We connect patients to electrical sensors and monitor their body (bio) and receive information (feedback) that is used to record and learn to control subtle changes that can reduce stress and relax muscles. Biofeedback, unlike Neurofeedback, focuses specifically on controlling one’s autonomic functions. Improvement to overall health can be facilitated through control over the body.*

What is QEEG?

A QEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram) is essentially a map of the brain that records electrical patterns based on cortical activity on the surface of the scalp. When EEG data is computer analyzed, we call it a quantitative EEG. Your own EEG data will be compared to a standard set in a reference database based on other’s EEGs. Depression, anxiety, and other disorders can all be indicated by the patterns observed in these maps. Both treatment planning and progress will utilize your QEEG.*

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 all about teaching yourself to regulate your own brainwave activities. Through the use of computers, we show live feedback to our clients as we monitor brain functions. We reward the brain as we utilize this feedback to promote or reduce different brain waves frequencies to train the brain to monitor its own activity and produce more appropriate patterns. As the brainwave activity is “shaped” into more regulated and desirable performance, the reinforcement actually produces new electrical activity in the brain. These changes in activity often lead to symptom reduction as the brain teaches itself to self-regulate.*

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

The first thing we would do is perform a QEEG Brain Map, a safe procedure that records and statistically analyzes your EEG activity. Dr. Roseann will meet with you to review your brain map together and discuss the best treatment plan for you. Once that protocol is developed, you can start in on your Neurofeedback sessions immediately. The optimal quantity of sessions will vary depending on the individual, but can often range somewhere between 20 to 100 or more sessions.* Most of our patients in the Washington area will visit our offices twice a week. When you attend a session, we will provide brainwave reinforcement as we monitor your brain’s activity through sensors on the scalp and ears, all while watching a movie.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

Dr. Roseann will walk you through every step, from your initial meeting, to reviewing your results after completing the QEEG, to making further recommendations on appropriate treatment. Dr. Roseann 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. Based on the data in your clinical intake and QEEG results, she will determine what therapy or therapies will work best for your situation. We are proud to provide all of these services and alternative therapies to Washington residents.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

We monitor progress in three distinct ways:

  • Objectively looking at brain functions through QEGs at regular intervals.
  • Through Neurofeedback sessions and the data collected from them.
  • Through regular customized symptom checklist progress monitoring

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Neurofeedback is a safe alternative to surgical and pharmaceutical treatments for a variety conditions affecting children, adolescents, and adults. This alternative treatment has been validated and has been shown to be effective by thousands of research studies over the past 40+ years. The American Academy of Pediatrics gave it a Level 1 effectiveness rating—the same effectiveness as pharmaceutical treatment*—in the treatment of ADHD in 2013.*
