“Where we look affects how we feel”
Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. This form of therapy was developed from the backbones of EMDR Therapy and is quickly becoming a recognized scientifically-researched form of treatment for trauma and PTSD. Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. It is a powerful and focused treatment method that works to release/process areas of emotional and physical pain that is associated with trauma. Brainspotting can access deeply rooted sources of anxiety and stress and then facilitate a processing of these disturbances to a point of resolution.
Here is an introduction to what Brainspotting is from the founder and developer, David Grand:
As an Certified Brainspotting Therapist I have over two years experience with conducting, utilizing, and employing Brainspotting with over 100 sessions. I have undergone required training and additional advanced training (Levels I, II, II) and consultation in order to achieve Certification status.

As I am trained in both EMDR therapy and Brainspotting, my clients and I can work together to find a modality that would best assist with achieving our goals. Both are highly effective forms of intensive treatment and can be administered in-person or via teletherapy.
