Brainspotting is a relatively new, cutting-edge modality. Brainspotting allows individuals to access sources of information in the brain where less processed emotions and memories are stored.
How does Brainspotting work?
Brainspotting connects specific spots in a person’s line of sight to a specific region in the brain containing information (called a Brainspot) – a link is made between the person’s eye position and an area of the brain allowing for information to be processed and unpacked. By identifying a Brainspot, a client notices the specific spot where they feel the most (or least) activation (mental and physical) in response to the issue they want to address during the session.
Lets create a safe and dependable partnership that can provide you with a solid foundation to make decisions and evaluate changes in your life.

Is Brainspotting used only to treat trauma?
What if I have not experienced traumatic experiences?
Brainspotting is used to treat many challenges, including trauma, but it is not limited to treating trauma symptoms exclusively. If you think you have not gone through any traumatic experience, you can still reap the benefits from Brainspotting. Since most human beings store a tiny fraction of daily experiences (traumatic or not) into conscious awareness, you can still benefit from unpacking and processing parts of any given experience to gain insight into your way of thinking, feeling, and relating to the outside world. Again, following the previous analogy, the more organized your room is, the easier it is for you to move in your day to day without feeling held back trying figure where things are or feeling confused and lost as to where you left them.
Is Brainspotting right for you?
Considering the flexibility with which Brainspotting operates with, Brainspotting can (and has been) used with great effect to treat symptoms of trauma, depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, mood disorders, substance use, ADHD, somatic pains, neurological disorders, cognitive dissonance (feeling stuck), performance anxiety, and many more. Moreover, Brainspotting can be utilized in individual sessions, but also group sessions, including family and couples work. Due to Brainspotting’s way of operating and efficacy in facilitating deeper processing, it can be used for virtually any difficulty experienced by an individual. Integrating information and bringing it into conscious awareness has benefits which transcend any type of challenge and/or mental illness, which is why Brainspotting can be so impactful and profoundly life changing.
