My Approach to Helping
I specialize in working with families who have children and adolescences with challenging behaviors in the state of Florida. Reactive Attachment Disorder is a relational wounding that begins within the first five years of life. Adopted and Foster may have had early childhood developmental trauma neglect that impacts them in significant ways. Additionally, biological children can also have attachment-related issues due to family disruptions, postpartum depression, birth trauma, and other challenges. Are you frustrated with traditional parenting tools that have not worked with your wounded child? Have you tried other therapies that have left you feeling hopeless? I can help. I provide real tools and support for parents that have been proven to be effective. I train parents to become therapeutic, empathy-based parents who connect with their wounded child\'s heart for lifelong behavioral change.
More Info About My Practice
I work both online and in person.
IN PERSON: I social distance and sanitize between clients. I ask for clients to please wash their hands thoroughly before coming into the therapy office. I respect your right to wear a mask or not. I prefer not to wear a mask during session as it complicates communication, but am more than happy to wear one if you prefer.
ONLINE: HIPPA compliant Zoom platform available. I am open to other platforms if you require. I request that you are in a quiet location during our meeting to reduce distractions and background noise that interfere with communication.
My Role as a Therapist
I provide an accepting non-judgmental compassionate approach to working with families. I not only specialize in reactive attachment disorder, but I am raising a child with attachment disorder and autism. This personal experience generates a deeper understanding of the challenges parents face as they navigate life. I like to interject humor when appropriate into our sessions as I believe that laughter is the best medicine. I look forward to helping you help your child connect their heart with yours for life long behavioral change that brings joy back into your family life. Lets work together to help your child become the best version of themselves that they can be. There is hope for their future.
