Brainspotting was developed through David Grand’s work with survivors of trauma. Brainspotting works by assessing what a person’s core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, dissociation and trauma are. It can help people access, process and overcome negative emotions. Many mental health professionals have found utilizing this approach to be an effective form of treatment for those struggling with anxiety, PTSD, anger issues, phobias, ADHD and substance abuse.

Neuroscience has found that stress, difficult experiences and trauma can lodge in parts of the brain and nervous system that are out of reach of our rational mind. That is why ‘talking alone’ will not fully release these difficulties. Brainspotting can heal these painful emotions, patterns and reactive triggers in a safe, gentle way. I am a certified Brainspotter with advanced training.

It's been a joy to see the benefits of this gentle, cutting-edge approach in my clients' lives. It works with the way your brain and body already process and store memories to help you have more deeper brain change and relief. If you're tired of talking through the current issue (anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, relationship issues, anger, etc) at hand and are ready for a change, let me know.

Brainspotting is a powerful & effective method of identifying, processing, and releasing various types of trauma. Past traumatic experiences can have a negative effect on performance. Classic talk therapy often falls short in helping an athlete or performer rid themselves of these negative effects & reach their maximum potential.
