"Where you look affects how you feel." -David Grand
I am a Nationally Certified Brainspotting therapist and offer Brainspotting sessions to clients who want a deeper, trauma-informed approach to healing. When talk therapy just isn't cutting it, Brainspotting can offer huge results and big relief to a wide range of clients.

What is Brainspotting?
Brainspotting is a body-based tool that taps into and harnesses the body’s natural self-scanning, self-healing abilities. The technique is sometimes compared to EMDR as it has some similarities.
Who does it work on?
Brainspotting can address the following issues effectively:
...and so much more.
Are there side effects?
Many people feel sleepy afterward. Some feel more energized/uplifted. Mostly, there are no major side effects.
How does it work?
By using bilateral stimulation (special music played through your headphones) and intentionally looking at a particular spot or spots, Brainspotting helps you to trauma or anything that is causing you distress. This approach helps you tap into the subcortical brain: the area where trauma is stored. You may follow a pointer held by the therapist or use your natural "gaze" to find the brain spot.
Why I use it:
I love Brainspotting because it works so well and is a different, more effective approach than simple talk therapy. Sometimes we hit a wall with talk therapy because talking doesn't get us to the subcortical brain: this is where real healing can happen.
