Unresolved trauma, such as narcissistic abuse, can leave you feeling drained, exhausted, or in a hyper-vigilant state as you stay in the trauma responses of fight, flight, or freeze. This releases the stress hormone cortisol, negatively impacting mood, memory, sleep, focus, digestion, and your immune system.

Unlike traditional talk therapy, BrainSpotting is a trauma therapy that bypasses the thinking brain (neocortex). It accesses the reactive brain (subcortex), allowing you to resolve trauma responses in a comfortable, controlled setting.

What would it feel like to experience or remember these traumatic events that you have experienced but would no longer be bothered by the emotion of the event?

Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered by David Grand, Ph.D., in 2003. Dr. Grand believes that what people see affects how they feel. He realized that people could access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain, where brain activity organizes itself around their eye position.

This process of bilateral stimulation down-regulates the amygdala (our fear center) because the eye position accesses somatic capsules in the subcortical brain where this trapped trauma is stuck. Brainspotting therapy reveals, disrupts, and releases negative thoughts associated with memories and changes them to positive ones. BSP therapy includes somatic work, neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology, and the polyvagal theory.

During the trauma therapy treatment, you will be guided to look in a certain direction, guided by a pointer. Together, we will find the spots triggering a response in your body.

If a particular spot activates a negative memory, we will have found a brain spot where trauma is stored. The trauma can be processed effectively by working together in a safe and attuned environment. The past can’t be changed, but your continued emotional reaction can be brought back into regulation within your everyday life.

  • PTSD/Complex PTSD
