Description

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

In passing, you’ve likely heard the phrase, “the eyes are the windows to the soul.” But did you know that there is an emerging body-based modality that works to process client trauma through movement in the eyes? It’s called ‘Brainspotting,’ and today’s guest is here to share all about it. Nicole Bryant is a licensed Mental Health clinician practicing in North Carolina who specializes in neuro-psychotherapy and is currently a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner. 

In our conversation today, we discuss the science behind Brainspotting, how Brainspotting can serve as an alternative for clients dissatisfied with talk therapy, and why she believes communities of color could benefit most from this treatment.
