" Where you look affects how you feel..."
Brainspotting (BSP) is a remarkable therapeutic approach that taps into the brain's innate ability to heal itself. Developed in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D., Brainspotting offers a unique and effective way to address trauma, stress, and emotional and physical challenges. Since this discovery, therapists and other practitioners have been trained in Brainspotting in the United States, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa.
What is Brainspotting?
Brainspotting is a therapeutic modality that utilizes the connection between eye position and brain activity to access and process unresolved trauma, distress, pain and emotional or physical blocks. By identifying specific eye positions called "brainspots," individuals can tap into their brain's natural healing mechanisms, facilitating emotional and psychological growth. Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core sources of emotional or body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. Through this personal, powerful and focused method we can identify, process, release and heal core neurophysiological sources of emotional and physical pain, trauma and creative or physical blocks that may be hindering a person’s daily function. And, so much more!

Is Brainspotting right for you?
While Brainspotting can be highly effective, it may not be suitable for everyone. It's important to consult with a qualified therapist or practitioner who can assess your unique needs and guide you through the process. This may help you determine if Brainspotting aligns with your goals and create a personalized treatment plan for optimal results.
Why I chose Brainspotting as a therapeutic tool and for my own personal growth and change...
I started my journey of learning Brainspotting thinking I could use a new tool in my toolbox, then I actually attended my first training. It was a transformative experience for me, both learning it and allowing myself to have the experience of Brainspotting in practice, working through some of my own personal history and present day concerns. Since that first training, I have worked toward bettering my experiences as a practitioner and attended further training, consultation and eventually getting fully certified.
I feel passionately about the work that I do with my clients, and rather than just one more tool in my toolbox, Brainspotting has given me the opportunity to support my clients in a different way, to follow their lead for what they need and to see positive and permanent change. Brainspotting is about attunement between body and mind, therapist and client. I have used Brainspotting to help clients explore and process traumatic events, overcome creative and physical blocks, reduce obsessive thoughts, change personal habits and find an expansive goal and so much more.
I am always learning and exploring how it can benefit my clients, my practice and my personal growth.
