Here you will find support in post adoption services including supporting children in healthy relationship building, sensory awareness, establishing coping skills, and mind body awareness. Caregivers will receive support to help them effectively meet their child's needs and build an understanding of early childhood trauma and the impact this has on their child's functioning and development.
Children & adolescents will find support through play, art and other expressive therapies as well as talk therapy. I work with children to build coping skills and strategies at an age & developmentally appropriate stage that they can apply to manage emotions effectively, gain understanding of their life circumstances, and empower them to grow and reach their goals.
Adults & families will be supported in working together with me to find solutions to meet their needs and achieve their goals utilizing a variety of therapies including DBT, solution focus and strength based approach. Parents will be offered support in building communication skills, behavioral plans which include natural consequences & relational building approaches, as well as education on parenting a child with trauma or specialized needs.
Additional support services offered to all clients include advocating and support at PPT/school meetings and collaboration with DCF or other outside providers.
Children ages 4 & up, adolescents, parents, individuals, and families are welcome to call or email me to set up a consultation.
