I help clients identify and resolve trauma-related issues such as:
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Acute Stress Disorder (ASD)
- Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD)
- Disinhibited Social Engagement Disorder
- Adjustment disorders.
Children & Adolescents: I have received extensive training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and use this as a basis for interventions that help young clients quiet the trauma-created monster in their head.
TF-CBT is an evidenced-based treatment methodology proven effective with children and adolescents to address a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues connected to single, multiple or complex traumatic events.
Adults: I utilize some of the same concepts and interventions involved in TF-CBT and combine narrative and mindfulness techniques to help adult clients recognize and work through issues related single, multiple or complex traumatic events.
I also address co-occurring disorders that may arise, such as substance use or abuse.
