Triage Counseling is an assessment conducted at a client’s point of entry to health services which aims to categorize the urgency of mental health related problems. This involves the client receiving an initial screening evaluation and those classified as urgent (e.g., a danger to self or others, severe or psychotic symptoms) are given priority appointments.
Included in Triage Counseling are:
- Assessing the initial needs of the clients.
- Scheduling initial intake appointments.
- Providing back up for med management.
- Completing suicidal assessments.
- Meeting with clients in times of crisis when a therapist is not available.
- Allowing for client walk-in services for a needs assessment.

Brainspotting – “Where you look affects how you feel”
Our eyes and brains are intricately woven together, and vision is the primary way that we, as humans, orient ourselves to our environment. Signals sent from our eyes are deeply processed in the brain. The brain then reflexively and intuitively redirects where we look, moment to moment.
The brain is an incredible processing machine that digests and organizes everything we experience, but trauma can overwhelm the brain’s processing capacity, leaving behind pieces of the trauma, frozen in an unprocessed state.
During a brainspotting session, a trained clinician will ask you to choose an ‘issue’ that you would like relief from. While talking about the issue, the clinician will ask you to share where in your body you feel the issue. You’ll be asked to rate the intensity of your feelings on a scale from 1-10. The clinician will lead you in an eye scan to find the position that seems to be strongly connected to this issue. After that, a rapid processing of memory, body responses, or verbal processing occurs, which results in the desired outcome– the issue gets resolved on a deeper level than talk therapy would allow.
Those who have experienced either physical or emotional trauma, feel blocked in making progress in goals or performance, or are challenged with faulty core beliefs may obtain benefit from brainspotting. This form of therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment option for those experiencing:
- All forms of trauma (and PTSD)
- Attention issues (ADHD)
- Anger issues
- Substance abuse
- Chronic fatigue and chronic pain
- Impulse control issues
- Sports performance issues
- Eating disorders
