Trauma-Sensitive and Attachment-Focused Therapy

We specialize in providing effective treatments that address children's traumatic stress, including feelings of fear, shame, grief, and loss. Our approach is experiential, meaning we do not solely rely on talk therapy. Instead, we utilize methods that go beyond traditional talk-based approaches and behavior modification (reward/punishment systems) as they may not be as successful with our young clients.

Our goal is to enhance emotional regulation and teach self-regulation skills to help children cope with and process their traumatic experiences. We strongly believe in involving parents or caregivers in the therapy process, as they play a crucial role in supporting the child's healing journey. We provide parenting strategies and recognize the critical importance of therapeutic parenting in the child's recovery.

Moreover, we incorporate neuro-based approaches into our therapeutic model. Research on early childhood trauma has shown that addressing the underlying neurological impairments caused by abuse and neglect can be highly beneficial alongside attachment and trauma therapy. One of the approaches we use is the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) developed by Dr. Bruce Perry. This approach focuses on understanding the impact of trauma on the developing brain and tailoring interventions accordingly.

In addition to our trauma-sensitive, attachment-focused therapy, we also offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is a targeted form of therapy that helps individuals process disturbing and difficult feelings related to events that have been traumatic. This therapy involves special protocols and may use specific equipment to enable emotional change at a deep physiological and neurological level. EMDR is unique and follows a specific procedure distinct from traditional talk therapy.

We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for children and their families to heal from trauma. If you or your child could benefit from our services, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are here to help and support you on the path to healing and growth.
