Neurofeedback for Adults and Children utilizing the high-powered BrainPaint system. When the brain is given information about itself, it has an enormous capacity for change. Neurofeedback provides the brain with real-time information and asks it to make adjustments. The brain responds immediately. Changes in the brain due to neurofeedfeedback tend to correlate with decreased trauma, improved behavior, mood stabilization, affect regulation, deeper sleep, finer focus, sharper performance and increased attention. Neurofeedback directly influences neuronal firing, which improves activation, inhibition, and cortical stability, while balancing regulatory mechanisms.

Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for Adults and Children was developed by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D. Francine Shapiro has given a life-transforming gift to the world by her rigorous development of a science-validated approach to soothing the suffering of our small and large life traumas. Our experiences are remembered in networks of interconnected neural patterns that can later create maladaptive ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving that may form prisons of the mind, forcing us to live in automatic ways we may believe we cannot change. Yet how we focus the mind can actually change the very structure of the brain itself. The key is to know how to use our awareness to create this important healing.

Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of challenging symptoms. Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, enhanced with BioLateral sound, which is deep, direct, powerful yet focused and containing.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping, also know as Tapping) is a universal healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way. Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, it is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body.

EFT combines the physical benefits of acupuncture with the cognitive benefits of conventional therapy for a much faster, more complete treatment of emotional issues, and the physical and performance issues that often result. While related to acupuncture, EFT does not use needles. Instead, we use a simple two-pronged process wherein we (1) mentally “tune in” to specific issues while (2) stimulating certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips. Properly done, EFT appears to balance disturbances in the meridian system and thus often reduces the conventional therapy procedures from months or years down to minutes or hours.

Sensorimotor Processing is a body-oriented intervention for tracking, naming, and safely exploring trauma-related, somatic activation, creating new competencies and restoring a somatic sense of self. This technique focuses first on stabilization and symptom reduction. Sensorimotor processing can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments.
