My Approach to Helping
I specialize in helping people resolve trauma and problems leftover from early attachment relationships, and helping parents (adoptive and biological) relate to their young children. I use EMDR, expressive arts, and talk therapy with adults to resolve these issues. With children, I use Theraplay and EMDR. I have over 20 years of experience in counseling and am one of three registered play therapist supervisors in Terre Haute. I also support issues related to giftedness in children and adults, and work-related issues women face.
Research proves that talking is not always enough, especially with trauma-related problems. I use to play, art, sand, EMDR, dream work, and movement to help clients move beyond old problems and patterns. I also offer careful and thorough evaluations of children\'s school behavior problems. See drcatherinetucker.com for details.
I\'ve been doing counseling since the mid-\'90s. I\'ve worked in schools, agencies, and have taught counseling at the university level. I\'m also a trainer, researcher, and author of 2 books on counseling children. I\'m the person other therapists call when they have questions.
