Brainspotting

If you are a professional counselor/therapist looking to work on blind spots, countertransference, or unresolved grief an loss, I offer Brainspotting Therapy.  

If you are struggling with trauma, negative emotions, or pain that seem to be stuck in your body and mind, brainspotting therapy may be a helpful option for you. Brainspotting therapy is a gentle and effective way to access and process the root causes of your distress, without having to relive the painful memories or events. Brainspotting therapy works by finding the eye positions or “brainspots” that are linked to the parts of your brain that hold the trauma or pain. By focusing on these brainspots with the guidance of a trained therapist, you can release and heal the emotional and physical blocks that are holding you back. Brainspotting therapy is a client-centered and flexible approach that respects your pace and comfort level. You are in control of your own healing process, and your therapist is there to support you along the way. Brainspotting therapy can help you with a variety of issues, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, chronic pain, performance enhancement, and more. Brainspotting therapy can help you feel more calm, confident, and free. If you are interested in learning more about brainspotting therapy or scheduling a session, please contact me today. I look forward to working with you.

What is Brainspotting? 

Brainspotting is a type of therapy that uses eye positions to access and process trauma, negative emotions, and pain that are stored in the subcortical brain. It is based on the idea that "where you look affects how you feel", meaning that different eye positions can trigger different emotional and physical responses. By finding the specific eye positions or "brainspots" that are connected to the source of distress, the therapist can help the person release and heal the trauma or pain.

Brainspotting was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, PhD, who was working with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. He noticed that one of his clients had a strong reaction when her eyes were fixed on a certain spot. He then developed brainspotting as a way to explore and utilize this phenomenon. Brainspotting is considered an advancement of EMDR, as it does not require the person to relive the trauma or follow a rigid protocol.

Brainspotting can be used for a wide range of issues, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, chronic pain, performance enhancement, and more. It can be done with or without bilateral stimulation (such as sounds or tapping) and with various tools (such as pointers or headphones) to help the person find and focus on their brainspots. Brainspotting is a client-centered and flexible approach that allows the person to go at their own pace and depth.
