"Where you look affects how you feel". Brainspotting makes use of this natural phenomenon through its use of relevant eye positions. This helps me as your therapist locate, focus, process and release a wide range of emotionally and bodily-based conditions. Brainspotting is also a brain-based tool to support the therapy relationship. Brainspotting taps into and harnesses the body’s natural self-scanning, self-healing ability. When a Brainspot is stimulated, the deep brain appears to reflexively signal to me as your therapist that the source of the problem has been found. Brainspotting can also be used to find and strengthen our natural resources and resilience. Brainspotting is designed as a therapeutic tool that can be integrated into many of the healing modalities.
I specialize in treating what any person may feel has been a traumatic event. That means no two people experience an event the same way. What you may experience as traumatic another person may not. So if you are experiencing symptoms (emotional, psychological or physical) you have a right to find a therapist you trust so you can heal.
Internal family systems is a non-pathologizing approach to psychotherapy. It emphasizes the natural multiplicity of the mind (everyone has parts). The grounding assumption is that there are no bad parts, only parts forced into bad roles. When you learn how to access Self, you can then heal your wounded parts. This brings the whole system into harmony and allows you to become more Self-led. The natural side effect of this healing is a reduction in problematic or symptomatic behavior.
