Welcome to Rocky Mountain Brainspotting Institute!

The Rocky Mountain Brainspotting Institute (RMBI) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that was created to promote and advance the use of Brainspotting, an emerging new treatment in psychotherapy. We are a professional association of psychotherapists who use Brainspotting in our practices. Brainspotting (BSP) uses a Mind/Body approach to psychotherapy that evolved from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and the Somatic Experiencing (SE) Traditions. Upsetting memories are stored deep within the brain and the body.  BSP helps to release these stressors because it works from the deeper level of the autonomic nervous system and within the limbic system in the brain. Brainspotting is an effective and efficient healing modality that can be used with children, adolescents and adults and has been beneficial with all types of performance work and spiritual development.

RMBI has been seen an increase in requests to our Scholarship Treatment Fund (STF) from people in need of Brainspotting who cannot afford to pay for therapy. We anticipate needing to provide at least 24 scholarships in 2021 – that means $24,000!

Every donation supports our STF program through which we match those in need with RMBI member-therapists for up to ten sessions of therapy.
