Brainspotting Phase 1 (In Person) – St Paul, MN April 26-28th

Brainspotting is a revolutionary therapeutic approach that delves deep into the complexities of the brain and body, offering a unique and powerful method for processing trauma, emotions, and psychological distress. In this multifaceted therapeutic process, we embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing, guided by the belief that where we look affects how we feel, and within our eyes, we can uncover the profound connections between our experiences and our internal landscape. Brainspotting’s Phase 1 is the foundational step in this transformative process, a doorway to understanding and healing the intricate workings of the brain and body.
