Natural Process of Change

ACCS Tools / Methods


Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment that reduces and can eliminate body pain and tension. It harnesses the mind and body’s natural self-scanning, self-healing ability to dismantle the trauma, distress and beliefs at the subconscious core to free the mind and body.

What is Brainspot?

Who does Brainspotting work with?

As a client why choose Brainspotting?

Motivational Interviewing
Helps to facilitate intrinsic motivation within a person in order to change behavior.

PTSD / Trauma

Adverse life and childhood experiences known as ACES can lead our brains and bodies to create natural adaptations to cope with these life events. We are beginning to understand that trauma is the underlying link to many life struggles.

Alcohol and Drug Problems

Alcohol and other drug related struggles are common struggles for 20-30% of our communities especially in Wisconsin. Often times it is the result of a number of factors: beginning at an early age, growing up in a family where it is prevalent, having a brain/body that enjoys the intoxication, and entangled other life struggles that get wrapped into substance use.

In addition to the personal struggles with alcohol or drugs, the family and loved ones need support too.
