I offer a relational/attachment-based approach when working with young children and their parents. I want to know the challenges you are struggling with, what you have tried and how you want things to be. I want to understand you, your child, and your relationship so together we can achieve the changes you are seeking. Together, we will make a plan.
I offer ‘Child-Parent Psychotherapy” – a relational, trauma-informed and evidenced-based intervention for young children who have experience violence and other traumas. (https://childparentpsychotherapy.com/resources/roster).
Circle of Security Parenting™
I am a Registered Circle of Security Parent Facilitator. Circle of Security Parenting™ is an 8-week program based on decades of research. The focus is to support and strengthen secure parent-child relationships by becoming more aware of a child’s need for a safe haven and a secure base for exploration.
Watch, Wait and Wonder: Infant-led Intervention
I have completed Watch, Wait and Wonder: Infant-led Intervention developed by Elisabeth Muir, Mirek Lojkasek, and Nancy J. Cohen. Watch, Wait and Wonder is a dyadic infant/child-led approach to problems in infancy and early childhood. The parent follows the infant/child’s lead in the play, then the parent and therapist engage in a reflective discussion of the parent observations and experience.
I am on the Child-Parent Psychotherapy Roster, which is maintained by the Child Trauma Research Program. Child-Parent Psychotherapy developed by Alicia Lieberman and Patricia Van Horn is an evidenced-based intervention designed to repair the behavioral and emotional problems of infants, toddlers and preschoolers whose most intimate relationships are disrupted by experiences of maltreatment, violence and trauma.
I am here to assist.
