Overview

My primary mission is to offer veterans as well as civilians who continue to suffer from the effects of trauma, the promise of hope from a member of the healing profession! I do this to replace the erroneous belief that currently pervades many of our mental health professionals about PTSD being a lifelong psychic injury that cannot be healed. In order to accomplish this objective, our country's healers require the tools and knowledge required to alter frozen brain circuitry that has become locked into a self-defensive mode.
With this point of view in mind, those with PTSD have been led to believe that they must either ingest medications designed to contain and control their minds at the expense of their personalities or, they are required to be in some form of psychotherapy for the rest of their lives, or both of the above.
A key point I'd like to make is that PTSD is a disease of the memory system. The real problem is not that the trauma happened in the first place, but the fact that the memory of the trauma can't be forgotten. Adults and children dealing with PTSD end up reliving the trauma over and over again. This includes physiological reactions to the experience as well as their associated emotions such as fear, anger and sadness. The emotional charge of the memories remains hair-trigger and intrudes into numerous activities of daily living.
An amazing solution to this difficulty is RESET Therapy (Reconsolidation Enhancement by Stimulation of Emotional Triggers) which combines neuro-acoustical stimulation (sound) with patient recall of traumatic memories. The idea is to reset emotional memory circuits in the brain to pre-trauma levels. This occurs during a process designed to interfere with a targeted memory being restored repeatedly after it is selectively lit up in the emotional part of the brain through the patient's intentional focus.
Methods like RESET Therapy are giving many trauma impaired individuals hope that PTSD doesn't have to permanently ruin their lives. It's increasingly clear that brain-based methods and non-invasive tools are the future of medicine. I am committed to fully researching this approach and to train and certify as many healers that I can share this critically important knowledge with.
