Attachment Therapy for All Relationships
Neuorfeedback Solutions
You may have found this listing in a focused search for a healing solution for your traumatized, attachment challenged child or RAD diagnosed child within your family. You came to the right spot.

I work with individuals, couples, and families utilizing attachment therapies designed to address underlying emotional difficulties associate with parent/child challenges in the first few years of life. I am experienced in couples attachment therapy and emotionally focused therapy approaches that are proven effective with adults. Also, I specifically specialize in treating children and adolescents who may have experienced trauma due to childhood abuse, neglect, abandonment, multiple foster family placements, and/or adoption. These children have already experienced harm and I take great care not to cause them to be re-traumatized by the clinical interventions that are designed to help them heal and grow into healthy individuals.

My therapeutic approach is proven effective in reducing the behavioral symptoms that are often associated with a variety of disorders, including Complex Developmental Trauma, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, and others. Additionally, my treatment approach addresses the underlying fears, misperceptions, and distress from which this population of children may suffer, and which contribute to their disturbing behavior and lack of healthy attachment relationships.

Our latest therapeutic addition to our services is neurofeedback. Finally, a way to retrain the brain for a better life.

Additionally, I use individual Emotionally Focused Family Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Therapy with the child when trauma is interfering with the ability to think clearly, make decisions from a solid base, and cope emotionally to family interactions, life experiences, and challenges.

You do not have to figure this out alone. There is hope. Your child can grow to express love more freely, and your family can live peacefully together.
Counseling is not for everyone and it may be just what you are looking for to create the life you want. I believe in emotionally grounded, intimate relationships, so I am drawn to practicing Emotionally Focused Therapy with Couples and Families, which is researched, effective, and based on the fundamentals of Attachment Theory.

Despite what we may wish, relationships take effort, career advancement needs focused attention, and families need support to create loving, life-long connections worth having.

I will work with you to discover your own solutions to your own situations and support you to reach what you are looking for in your life. Take a look at my credentials, education, training, and supervised practice on the next few pages and see if I have the experience to support your needs. Also, check out the resources page to get more ideas about attachment-based therapy for couples and families with attachment challenged children.

Counseling is a choice. If you want to give it a try, I welcome you to come in and see if you think we can work together to accomplish your goals.
