Lenore Matthew, PhD, MSW
Melding science and spirit in mental health care.
I am a Dr. of Social Work and practitioner/researcher with expertise in trauma, intuitive awakenings, and brain/body/spirit healing, as well as research and evalutation.
Previously, I worked in program evaluation and evidence-based practice design with international organizations, including the United Nations.
Today, I use a grounded science-meets-spirit approach to help people process trauma, pain, and stuckness, and open up to a life of joy, freedom, expansion, and possibilities.
In 2020, I lost my late husband to sudden suicide. Immediately after, my intuitive ability of mediumship awoke. I trained and practiced as a professional medium, leaning into my newly discovered intuitive abilities and connection to my late husband. As my most powerful guide through deep trauma and complex grief, these connections led me down a path of myriad somatic, spiritual, mind/body, and energy-based healing techniques.
On that path, I discovered Brainspotting, a fast-acting, deeply effective brain/body modality for trauma, and a derivative of EMDR. In just one session, it completely changed my experience with trauma, grief, and the stronghold they had over my life. Through Brainspotting, combined with my connection to my intuitive self, my world shifted to one that is expansive, joyful, present, and profoundly alive.
My work today blends scientific methods from the fields of neuroscience, social work, and psychology, with the spiritual world and intuitive practices. My goal is to blend science with spirit to help people move through pain and trauma, and connect to their own soul, light, purpose, and joy.
Through my Research Lab, I conduct original studies on the impacts of intuitive/spiritual experiences and modalities on people's mental health. This work documents the effectiveness of spiritual, intuitive, and brain/body modalities, and how transformational spirituality and intuition can be.
In my direct practice, I offer my Continued Connection program, a groundbreaking approach to grief that helps people move through loss by teaching them how to connect to their loved ones on the Other Side.
Adding to this work, I will begin offering one-on-one Brainspotting sessions in 2024, guiding clients through a profound release of pain, trauma, and stress, coupled with an opening to their intuitive selves for guidance forward.
Light, expansion, and joy, in.
Whether it's traumatic loss or adverse childhood experiences that you are navigating, or feelings of stuckness, hopelessness, insecurity, being not good enough, perfectionism, anxiety, or depression, my blended approach of working with the deep brain plus opening up to one's soul, spirit, and intuition offers profound healing of the past alongside an expansive, positive opening to the future.
