What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-invasive form of treatment involving the study of brainwave (neuro) information (feedback) and reinforcing change.* This therapy causes the brain to regulate itself, calming the nervous system and diminishing symptoms. Central nervous problems such as anxiety, depression, and even physical issues can arise when this self-regulation does not occur. Unlike Biofeedback, Neurofeedback focuses on the autonomic functions rather than the bodily.

What is Biofeedback?

The process of learning to control and regulate one’s bodily functions, ranging from breathing to heart rate and skin temperature, is Biofeedback. In this therapy patients are connected to electrical sensors that provide information (feedback) regarding the body (bio) allowing you to record and learn to control subtle changes. For example, this therapy can help you to relax muscles or reduce stress. This is unlike neurofeedback which regards autonomic functions. Learning to control one’s own body through Biofeedback can greatly improve one’s health.*

What is QEEG?

QEEG stands for quantitative electroencephalogram. This is a brain map created via measuring electrical patterns on the surface of the scalp which reflects cortical activity. Quantitative EEG means a computer analyzed the raw data provided by the brain map. Other people’s previous EEG data provide a reference database which new results are then compared to. Using this comparison the patterns of this brain map can be interpreted to aid in treatment planning and progress. Some things that EEG can identify are patterns that could indicate depression, anxiety, and more.*

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 a way by which a person learns how to modify their own brainwaves. We show clients how their brain is functioning with the use of sophisticated computers. We then teach them how control their brain by promoting or reducing certain brain wave frequencies. We then use a process of reinforcement to reward the brain for these changes and the production of more appropriate patterns. This causes the brain to actually produce different electrical activity and thus brainwaves are shaped to produce more desirable and regulated performance. This self-regulation reduces symptoms.

What Does the Neurofeedback Process Involve?

We begin our process with a QEEG brain map. This collects data on your EEG activity so that it can be analyzed to help determine the best treatment plan. Dr. Roseann will go over this personally and meet with you to develop a treatment plan. The Neurofeedback session will begin immediately after a plan has been developed. The exact number of sessions varies from individual to individual. On the low end there can be as few as 20, but on the high end there can be 100 or more.* Weston patients generally come in twice a week. During each session we will place sensors on your scalp and ears while getting brainwave reinforcement as you watch a movie.

How Do I Get Started with Neuro/BioFeedback?

For those in Weston, simply call the office in order to schedule your QEEG Brain Map. In addition, we often have free Neurofeedback information sessions– Click Here – for more information.

How Do You Know Which Therapy I Need?

We will first perform a QEEG and then Dr. Roseann will meet with you. She will personally review your results and make recommendations regarding treatment. The therapy and or therapies will be determined by this combination of QEEG results and clinical intake. We are proud to provide Weston with these therapy alternatives.

How Do You Monitor Progress?

There are 3 ways in which we monitor progress:

  • With regularly scheduled QEEGs to analyze brain function with objective tools.
  •  With the data we collect at each Neurofeedback session.
  • With symptom checklist progress monitoring that has been customized around you.

Is the Therapy Supported by Research?

Yes. Thousands of research studies have supported its efficacy in over 40 plus years. It is a safe, and drug-free alternative treatment for many children and adults dealing with certain conditions. It even received a Level 1 effectiveness rating in 2013 for its effects treating ADHD. A Level 1 effectiveness rating means it is just as effective as medication.*
