Brainspotting Therapy

“Being traumatized means continuing to organize your life as if the trauma were still going on—unchanged and immutable—as every new encounter or event is contaminated by the past.” – Bessel van der Kolk

What Is Brainspotting Therapy and

How Does It Work?

Brainspotting is based on the neuroscience of “where you look affects how you feel.” Brainspotting facilitates healing by accessing the midbrain through the optic nerve using points in the clients’ visual field to treat symptoms caused by traumatic memories.

Traumatic memories can overwhelm the brain and manifest as ailments in the body. We can experience trauma at any age and be from all walks of life.

Trauma can trigger:







Relationship & Attachment Issues



With the help of a trained therapist, we work with you to locate, process, and heal trauma and emotional and bodily based conditions. Brainspotting is often integrated with psychotherapy, and both work toward resolving underlying trauma, which contributes to anxiety, depression, and other behavioral disorders.

Brainspotting has been found most effective in treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Complex Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD). While it can assist in other mood and behavioral disorders, it’s essential to receive treatment from a licensed therapist or specialist to see what can help you best.
