Center for Optimal Brain Integration 

"Giving Every Child and Adult a Voice"

"Growing Human(E) Beings"

The Center for Optimal Brain Integration® (COBI), launched in 2019 is built on over 30 years of experience in the field of trauma-responsive, engaging, strength-based and resilience building practices.  When I launched COBI, there was a single objective, and that is to give a VOICE to all children and adults who have experienced trauma.


We wanted to offer an approach that is based in research and evidence informed.  It is an approach that holds high quality standards (we call it a North Star approach) without losing the core purpose (we call it the Heart of our work), helping children and adults find a path for healing.  With almost half the nation’s children having experienced at least one or more types of serious childhood trauma (National Survey of Children’s Health, www.childhealthdata.org/learn/NSCH), this translates to an estimated 34,825,978 children nationwide. (Trauma Informed Practices for Early Childhood Educators: Relationship-Based Approaches that Support Healing and Build Resilience in Young Children Nicholson, Perez and Kurtz).  We can’t afford to wait to build tools in our toolbox of responsive, engaging and healing practices.


At the Center for Optimal Brain Integration® (COBI), we offer many platforms for adult learning for smaller programs to larger counties.
