Dearest Friends,

There has been much grief, loss, chaos, turmoil, change, isolation, and despair this year. So many of us will be glad to see this year be behind us. This year has brought heaviness like no other. As this unique year comes to a close, may we all reflect on the many lessons we've learned. Reflect upon the challenges we've faced to help us to stay in the light moving forward focused on gratitude. Let's all take an inventory of what has occurred and focus on our personal growth to highlight the emotional work, resiliency, and strength that we've acquired this year.  

Our office remains closed for everyone's safety. We are offering video conferencing and phone calls for telehealth services. We continue to monitor the pandemic situation and are practicing with recommendations from our professional organizations with your health in mind. Follow us on social media so you can stay informed in the new year. 

Despite the circumstances of the pandemic and your personal life, stay turned toward hope. Stay in the light for yourself and others. Spread joy and kindness where you can. Remember your sparkle. Stay healthy. Stay hopeful. Take good care of yourselves and of your families.  All of this will pass and we will move forward together... in better ways than ever before.  

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone!

Stacey Brown
Have You Heard About Brainspotting?
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 other challenging symptoms. Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, enhanced with Biolateral sound, which is deep, direct, and powerful yet focused and containing. Many experts in the area of trauma treatment believe that when overwhelmed by something traumatic or deeply distressing, the emotional “charge” or memory from that event becomes stored or trapped in our body. We’re often unaware that this has even occurred, but our brain is altered as a result. It can cause problems on all levels – emotionally, mentally, and physically.
Brainspotting is designed to discover, dislodge, and ultimately release that trapped energy so that it no longer causes problems in our life.
