Giving Activity


The mission of RMBI is to advance the use of Brainspotting through information dissemination, knowledge advancement, peer-to-peer learning and professional training.

2. assist the general public in finding Brainspotting resources and practitioners;

3. offer scholarships for Brainspotting therapy to income-qualifying individuals unable to afford treatment on their own; and

4. to encourage Brainspotting practitioners to further their education in the field of Brainspotting.

She received Phase One Brainspotting training in 2006 and Phase Two and the five day Intensive in 2007. She has been assisting Dr. David Grand, the founder of Brainspotting, in all levels of his trainings since 2008.
