Therapy can help people who are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and stressed, to gain control, feel more confident, competent, and grounded.
Life can be challenging. It is not uncommon to have physical, emotional and mental health symptoms exacerbated by day-to day-stressors.

Brainspotting (BSP) is a specific therapeutic tool which is a bit different from tradition forms of talk therapy. It uses the neuroscience finding that where you look affects how you feel. It is a neurobiological tool derived from EMDR by David Grand in 2003 and is used to treat somatic and emotionally-based conditions. It is a way of accessing the midbrain through the optic nerve using eye position to treat symptoms caused by traumatic memories. BSP process stimulates the body's own natural ability to heal itself from trauma.
Often times people who have experienced significantly upsetting events don't want to talk about them. BSP is highly specialized modality with a gentle, client-centered application that does not require that you talk extensively about traumatic experiences in order to heal. We rely on the brain to know and provide what it needs.
Imagine your brain like a filing cabinet. Unprocessed trauma can be 'misfiled' in our midbrain causing emotional symptoms. BSP locates the file and allows it to be emptied by your brain's healing capacity.
I have been certified in Brainspotting since 2019 and can discuss the appropriateness of adding BSP sessions to your treatment plan. You can find information on the website brainspotting.com
All therapy sessions run from 45-52 minutes in length. Fee is the same for in person, telehealth or BSP.
