Children speak with their behavior. Identifying the root cause and etiology is just where we begin. Because children do not have the words to express what they are feeling and/or experiencing, their feelings are “stuck” inside and each child’s individual way of expression must be found to begin the healing process. Some common behavioral manifestations are feeling sad/depressed, fear/anxiety, attachment issues, difficulty at bedtime and/or falling/staying asleep, anger/impulse control, defiance, a significant change in school performance, expressed illness without a known medical cause, loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities and isolation.
My main area of expertise is in trauma. I am trained in Trauma Incident Reduction including application with children. Trauma and Traumatic Stress is individual to each person and manifests itself in many ways. I also specialize in physical and emotional school safety and significant involvement in the family courts.
My passion is making this world a better place to be for our children. I have continued my education in my areas of specialization creating a craft with a very high success rate. Children look forward to the time they spend with me and experience a higher level of treatment.
