Dr. Moenter, founder of FNDcourage and the Boulder Center for Neuro Health, is a founding member of the FND Society. She has been supporting individuals diagnosed with Functional Neurological Disorder for over 15 years. Dr. Moenter received her Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Sciences with a concentration in Psychology and a specialization in Neuropsychology, as well as an M.A. in Therapeutic Psychology.
Dr. Moenter’s special interest in FND started in 2002 while conducting research for her doctoral dissertation on complex partial epilepsy and PTSD. Over the years her curiosity and commitment to helping individuals with FND lead to a polyvagal theory informed treatment protocol that has helped many to self-regulate the FND nervous system.
The use of this body-based approach has become more refined and sophisticated during Dr. Moenter’s daily dedication to helping those with FND, her practice of relational mindfulness, her 30 years of extensive training and experience in working with symptoms of chronic stress and trauma, and her everlasting curiosity about how to end unnecessary suffering.
