My Approach to Helping
Trained in the Tomatis method with Dr. Alfred Tomatis, I use my expertise in auditory training techniques to provide in-depth evaluations with the scope of determining if these can be an appropriate treatment. I individualize recommendations based upon the most appropriate auditory processing training for each child or adult. These assessments take into consideration in-depth sensory processing, language processing, attention and cognitive abilities. I integrate Dr. Tomatis' approach-based Listening with Counseling, Movement or Neurofeedback programs to facilitate learning, improve processing speed, focus, attention, behavior and emotional regulation, and expand potential in children and adults, including peak performance.
In office and home Tomatis-Effect Listening Programs are available on an individual basis as required by some circumstances or for out-of-town clients.
In addition, I offer quantitative EEG recording and sw LORETA Neurofeedback and Interactive Metronome programs to improve learning, well-being and behavior.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Auditory Processing and Sensory Processing including sensory sensitivities such as Misophonia, tactile and vestibular sensitivities can be reflected in impulsive or shy behavior and low self esteem and slow processing speed. The method developed by Dr. Alfred Tomatis is a sound stimulation approach, which trains the brain-ear connection affecting auditory and vestibular processing. As one of the fewer than 6 practitioners in N-America trained with Dr. Alfred Tomatis himself and researcher in the field of auditory processing approaches I incorporate counseling and sound stimulation training into an individualized & complementary program for children, adolescents and adults. My training in child and family psychology with special expertise in Sensory-Motor Development and in q EEG swLORETA Neurofeedback allow me to draw from all these areas when working with my clients towards they goals. Our team of specialists at Dr. Sacarin Center are able to serve children, families and adults in Seattle and Bellevue area.
Our goal is to provide:
- medication-free interventions
- brief & efficient intervention
- solid and long-lasting effects
