Kristin Wright



Interested in clearing the mental clutter that is not serving you?


Kristin specializes in Mental-Clutter Burnout, the state of mind resulting from too much time spent fighting against negative thoughts and limiting beliefs about what you're capable of.


If you're experiencing a mismatch between the thoughts and attitudes you want to have about life, relationships, and yourself, it's time to "clean house" and gain the mental strength and flexibility to handle life's challenges.


Kristin uses somatic therapies like EMDR, Brainspotting, and Neurofeedback that cause deep neural network change so that patterns of automatic thoughts and behaviors no longer run in maladaptive ways, foiling your good intentions and life goals.

She absolutely loves seeing real transformation happen through partnering with clients in strengthening positive healthy patterns and clearing out what's unhelpful.


Kristin's fee is $125 per therapuetic session (55 minutes). She accepts cash or credit card at time of service. She also accepts Blue Cross of Idaho insurance and can provide documentation for clients who wish to seek reimbursement from other insurance providers.


If you’re interested in seeing what changes are possible with this approach, contact Kristin to schedule your free 15-minute phone consultation now.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing)

EMDR is an effective treatment for reprocessing memories that negatively affect a person's day-to-day functioning. In the safety of a therapeutic relationship, client and therapist explore the negative beliefs that are blocking personal goals. These memories may be conscious or beyond our awareness. It is an appropriate approach to try when a person finds themselves feeling or acting in ways counter to what they want to feel or know they should act.


EMDR is a trama-focused approach to treatment. Trauma can be experienced any time we feel that we don’t have the internal or external resources to keep ourselves or our loved ones safe, any time we feel overwhelmed by the situation in which we find ourselves. Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes. With this encompassing view of trauma, we recognize that we all may have trauma to resolve.

Brainspotting

Brainspotting is a powerful therapeutic intervention that derived from EMDR (see above). We’ve learned that where we look affects how we feel. This gives us access to accelerated healing. During a brainspotting session, a therapist guides the client to curiously notice body sensations, thoughts, images, and memories associated with a troubling issue. By compassionately accepting these experiences in a safe space, clients thoroughly process, and lay to rest, troubling worries, fears, and limiting beliefs related to past trauma.


Some experiences we look back on is clearly trauma and can easily be labeled as such. Other experiences that we don't think of as trauma could be negatively affecting our current state. We may or may not be aware of the connection. The beauty of Brainspotting is that we don't have to know how our past experiences are related in order to benefit from healing them.

Neurofeedback Training

Our NeurOptimal® brain training systems offer neurofeedback that is safe and accessible for anyone looking for that extra edge to optimize their brain function. We exercise our brain with neurofeedback to be more flexible, resilient, and in control.


Today’s world requires a tiring diligence to do life well. Demands from work, family, social obligations and our community leave limited time to slow down and enjoy the ride. When the everpresent distractions from technology and social media are added, moments of clarity and contentment can seem elusive.


Changes like waking up earlier, more coffee, cold showers, or a new planner can help, yet our brains remain reactive instead of settling in on our good intentions. Our world trains us to crave distraction.


NeurOptimal® is an advanced neurotechnology designed to train the brain to function at peak performance levels. This innovative form of neurofeedback is not a medical treatment, but rather a training for the brain.


NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training gives your brain the strength to stay on track with more ease, whether that’s keeping the family’s appoinments straight, bringing creativity to your work, or staying focused on your postive intentions, it gives you the power to live life focused on your values, not what the world doles out to you.


It doesn’t matter what your starting point is — EVERY brain can benefit and tap into its own unique optimal state.

How Does it Work?

What is Neuroptimal® for?

When your brain gets the right information (or feedback), it is able to organize itself, allowing patterns that may impede optimal functioning to dissolve. Signs of suboptimal brain performance may feel like being off or not reaching your full potential. Reflecting on obstacles that hinder your personal fulfillment is crucial, as these may require external resources to overcome.


Have you encountered moments when you felt highly focused, even invincible or untouchable, operating at your mental peak? Or experienced clarity, poise, and a profound sense of being in the present? Perhaps moments of warmth, safety, connection, and love. These instances signify a well-organized brain, a flexible central nervous system (CNS), and the immediate benefits derived from such states.


Engaging with NeurOptimal® is akin to defragmenting your mental hard drive, making it easier to overcome obstacles and access your optimal mental state. Barriers dissolve, and life begins to flow more effortlessly.


Irrespective of your starting point, every brain has a unique potential, a personalized level of optimal flow and function. Whether you're a high-performing athlete, an artist, or facing challenges in relationships or academics, with the right information, each brain can unveil its highest potential.


Whether you seek personal or spiritual growth, desire an edge for exams or performances, or simply aim to organize your life, we believe that NeurOptimal® can assist you in achieving these aspirations.

Embrace the opportunity to become your best self. The time is now.


Who can benefit from Neuroptimal® brain training?

People often inquire, "Who can benefit from utilizing NeurOptimal®?" The response is straightforward: "Anyone with a brain." This is because there are no specific criteria dictating eligibility for NeurOptimal® use. It caters to a wide spectrum of individuals, from toddlers to the elderly, encompassing both the unwell and the healthy, those not performing optimally to those excelling in their endeavors.


The beauty of NeurOptimal® lies in its inclusivity; there are no circumstances that restrict its application, and no prerequisites need to be met. Utilizing NeurOptimal® requires no expertise – simply connect sensors, and you're ready to go.


With each use of NeurOptimal®, your brain instantly receives real-time information about its activities, microsecond by microsecond. It adapts to your current state, requiring no upfront evaluation, decision-making, or adjustments to settings. There's no need to worry about making mistakes, and overtraining is not a concern. If your brain feels fatigued, it effortlessly disregards the information, much like ignoring a background television. It is a safe and effective tool.


In essence, NeurOptimal® is accessible to anybody, anywhere, at any time.


How does Neuroptimal® work?

NeurOptimal® involves providing your brain with information about its activities, enabling it to self-organize effortlessly. But how exactly does this process unfold?


In a NeurOptimal® session, you'll wear ear clips and two small sensors on the sides of your head, which delicately capture the electrical activity of your brain. As you relax with closed eyes, engrossed in music or a movie, NeurOptimal® swiftly processes your brain signals. When it detects any hint of instability, the music or movie pauses briefly – a crucial moment in the feedback loop.


Consciously, these pauses might go unnoticed, lacking apparent meaning. Yet, subconsciously, your brain grasps the mathematical patterns in the timing of these pauses, functioning akin to a "rumble strip." Without any conscious effort on your part (you can even be completely zoned out), your brain adjusts its activity to stay within this metaphorical rumble strip. It's comparable to walking along a cliffside path in the dark, where a flashlight reveals the edge. The flashlight doesn't instruct you on what to do, but armed with the extra information (the cliff's location), you can confidently navigate your path.


Over time, your brain learns from this feedback, autonomously organizing itself more efficiently. The result? Blocks in your life start to dissolve, and everything seems more manageable.

NeurOptimal® thrives on simplicity, yet its power is profound. By establishing direct communication with your brain, it operates without external interference. No external evaluator or diagnostician is needed, and there's no external influence dictating your training. It's your brain engaging in effective self-communication, bringing about its own transformative changes.


Your brain truly has the wisdom to optimize. Neuroptimal® merely shows it what it’s doing.







How Does it Work?

Do Results Last?

Engaging in NeurOptimal® sessions is akin to effortlessly acquiring a new skill, like learning to read, without the associated hard work! Once you've experienced it, the knowledge sticks with you – it's enduring. Yet, if life keeps you away for an extended period, you might feel a bit rusty. The beauty is, jumping back into a few sessions swiftly brings you up to speed, and you're back on track!


Think of NeurOptimal® as a valuable skill in your back pocket after around 20 sessions. However, life's unexpected twists may throw you off balance, and that's where a session or two (or three) can efficiently guide you back. The flexibility is yours – you can pause training at any time and seamlessly resume later. It's all about your preferences.


The enduring benefits of NeurOptimal® stay with you, and when life throws unexpected challenges, a few sessions can swiftly guide you back to your center.




Is NeurOptimal safe??

NeurOptimal® stands out for its exceptional safety, and here's why.


During a NeurOptimal® session, you may notice brief micro-pauses in the sound. However, once you settle into the session, these pauses become inconspicuous. This is the only feedback your brain receives.


But there's more to NeurOptimal®'s safety. Unlike other systems, NeurOptimal® doesn't train specific states of consciousness or attempt to influence outcomes. Instead, it provides your brain with mathematical information (in the form of skips), leaving it entirely up to your brain to utilize or disregard this data as it sees fit. This unique approach makes NeurOptimal® an extraordinarily safe tool for self-optimization. The evidence speaks for itself – with over three million hours of safe usage worldwide, as indicated by extensive user surveys, and this number continues to grow exponentially.


Consider joining the NeurOptimal® community. It has the potential to unlock your personal, social, spiritual, physical performance, or academic capabilities. With little to lose and possibly much to gain, NeurOptimal® offers a secure path to self-improvement!
