Who Can I help Using EMDR & Brainspotting?

I deal with survivors who are ready to undertake the work that leads to achievement and who encounter a wide range of traumas. To be effective, the client and I need to cooperate with each other to ensure that my treatment of trauma-related disturbances is effective. To my shared joy my clients may help their lives change while they recover and live in the present, mending using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Brainspotting.

Emotional persons (EP) and their function in and in the treatment of trauma symptoms should be understood by the trauma victims. My job is to educate people about EPs to confirm that their symptoms and traumas are not defined. Rather, we need to discover, analyze and integrate EPs in order to heal the entire person.

In the past, many of my clients have attempted alternative treatments, including several years of conversation therapy, with little or no results. Some did not feel comfortable enough to disclose to their therapist deeper trauma, claiming problems of trust or worries that their therapist couldn’t deal with what they had to say. They were frustrated, bored of continuous speeches and weakening symptoms, prepared to do more and perform their job. I’m helping that.


Why choose EMDR & Brainspotting? 

  • It is considered a process that provides deeper and accelerated resolutions that are more powerful and comprehensive that other techniques. 
  • While Brainspotting can sound and feel like magic, there is a lot of science behind it as a brain-based therapy.
  • It is empowering to discover the confidence of knowing you have the capability to heal yourself? 
  • You can talk as much or as little as you want to; you do not have to share your trauma with the therapist for it to be beneficial to you. 
  • It is an “open, integrative, ever-evolving model” and the humility of the founder David Grand, Ph.D. 
  • Brainspotting is appropriate for more clients, particularly those who can be overstimulated; it is flexible allowing us to find the specific iteration of Brainspotting that works best for you.
