  • ms MISSY ms

    Melissa A. Tatar-Pickersgill, M.S., LPC, NCC, BSP (she, her, hers) & Neurodivergent is an Author and Trauma Prevention Advocate, PA-Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in Autism/ADHD and Addiction, a trauma-informed mind-body Psychotherapist with a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, a National Board Certified Counselor, NARM I informed, a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner, a Certified Clinical Trauma Practitioner, and she completed the Certificate in Trauma Stress Studies from the Trauma Research Center in Boston, MA.

    I educate about and treat clinically the emotion regulation and coping strategies specific to the ASD/ADHD child/adult’s neurodiversity that may have either a known or unbeknown reason(s) for the client’s behavior(s) like anxiety management or violent outbursts that often self-sabotage one’s hoped for good outcome(s) by facilitating a multicultural and trauma-informed therapy approach that combine talk therapy, a top down approach together with evidence-based bottom up approaches. Note: Guided neuroscience-based mindfulness techniques offer your mind access to your emotions’ remote control!

    ms MISSY ms entered the mental health therapy profession later in her life to be a part of a solution to the systemic challenges within the mental health profession. Her mission motto is Stop the Story… The story IS the trigger.!”  Therefore, if the body’s part to play/act out, even during the story’s recall to discuss it, the body will shift into a physical state to be already primed for when [the time is perceived] to “need to” move fast; thus, to involuntarily re-act to the story’s trigger. For example, once your mind learned to ride a bike, the mind’s intention to ride a bike shifts the body to recall/resurface a felt state of truth to know how to balance the bike so the body is prepared for the act of riding it the second you get onto the bike. Therefore, the muscle memory in the body must be addressed first prior to any type of discussion of the story. How is this done…well that’s what the brain-hacks are for!!!!

    Brain-Hacks were designed during the pandemic’s shutdown to treat my clients with Autism/ADHD/OCD/PTSD/ID/BPD over the internet or telephone. They are a smashup of neuroscience and trauma-informed interventions that proved to me, 3 years later, that having fun learning about the ANS and mindfulness tools heightened my clients invested curious interests, worked faster, were easier/safer, hacked pass shame, & could not be done wrong!

    Missy started practicing Brainspotting with clients while in therapy herself receiving Brainspotting (BSP) treatment for grief. The modality was the fastest and most effective psychotherapeutic tool Missy tried for the treatment of grief and chronic pain management. As a chronic pain patient for over a decade, Missy tried countless treatments following a near-death SSRI and muscle relaxer combined-induced seizure in which meant she was told by doctors her only moving forward treatment option was to use opioids, physical therapy, and steroid injections. While laying in the hospital bed for three days, Missy asked herself how she gave away her power. In the hospital, Missy made a cognitive choice to no longer permit fear to govern her thinking so in her hospital bed, she took ownership of herself back, recognizing herself for the first time as the CEO of her own life.

    Two weeks after leaving the hospital on Labor Day weekend 2009, Missy walked into the Bucks County Community College to start her journey to self-educate and try out alternative solutions. For twelve years following the seizure, Missy read books about the brain, attended classes, workshops, and underwent many treatments like Neurofeedback Therapy, Myofascial Release Therapy, Psychotherapy, Spine Traction, Chiropractic, Psych-K, meditation practice, Hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Therapy, Energy Dowsing, Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy, Yoga, Acupuncture, TiChi, volunteered at an animal rescue, Pilates (thank you Chi, I will always love and appreciate you!), and many other lasers, etc therapies, as well Missy traveled to India twice, Japan and southern California to study and seek spiritual insights. Missy spent time practicing part-time with clients on the spiritual side of mental health wellness as a Certified Hypnotherapist and Board Certified Life and Career Coach. It took Missy five long arduous years before she eliminated the drug MS Cotin successfully from her pain management regime herself and with very responsible and respected pain management doctors who were willing to trust and honor Missy’s journey; thank you, Dr. Madnani(s), MDs. (photo credit: me wearing a friend’s dress to crash her cousin’s wedding in New Delhi, India and what happens at New Delhi weddings stay at The New Delhi’s wedding! lol)

    The experience, though, taught her first hand the effects of chronic pain’s most unidentified or misunderstood affect; dissociation. The extent of Missy’s injuries required her to have the Burst DR neurostimulator implanted on both her cervical spinal cord and thoracic spinal cord at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia. Thanks to Brainspotting, Missy emotionally and physically underwent successfully the four back surgeries at the same time she was earning her Masters of Science in Mental Health Counseling online at Walden University; which Missy completed with a 4.0 GPA. Therefore, Brainspotting’s impact on Missy’s own mental and physical health is why she chose to start Emotionally Rewired, LLC; a brain-body psychotherapy tool practice to naturally rewire the brain’s perception of “oh no!” to the perception of “I’m okay!”.
