As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, I bring education developed by PESI training to help overcome Traumatic events. In addition, I am in the process of becoming Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) certified. 

Trauma therapy aims to empower individuals to regain control over their lives, reduce distressing symptoms, and develop resilience to thrive in the aftermath of trauma. It’s essential for individuals seeking trauma therapy to work with trained and experienced therapists who specialize in trauma treatment.

Solution Focused Therapy

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a goal-oriented and strengths-based approach to therapy that focuses on identifying solutions rather than dwelling on problems. It is often used in brief therapy settings and is effective in helping clients make positive changes in their lives. It is Brief and Time-Limited,  Client-Centered, Goal-Oriented,  Feedback and Validation, Change Is Possible, Minimal Focus on Problem Origin, Collaboration and Empowerment, Applicability, and Positive Outcomes. SFBT has been found effective in treating a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship problems, and more.

SFBT is a flexible and practical approach that can be applied to a variety of situations and is particularly helpful when clients want to focus on solutions rather than dwelling on problems. It encourages clients to tap into their own strengths and resources to achieve their desired outcomes.

Play Therapy

Play therapy is a therapeutic approach specifically designed for children, though it can also be adapted for adolescents and adults, that uses play as a medium for expression and healing. It provides a safe and structured environment for individuals to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Key aspects of play therapy are Play as Communication,  Child-Centered Approach, Therapeutic Relationship, Range of Play Materials, Symbolism and Metaphor, Emotional Expression, Problem-Solving, Trauma and Healing, Developmentally Appropriate, and Goal-Oriented. 

Play therapy is a versatile and effective approach that addresses a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and psychological challenges in children. It respects the child’s unique way of experiencing and communicating their world while providing essential support for growth and healing.
