As a certified TF-CBT therapist (Trauma Focused - Cognitive Behavioral Therapist) I understand the importance of addressing traumas in sensitive yet direct manner in order to help children overcome the traumatic experience.  Children who have experienced a trauma often have difficulty identifying, expressing, and managing emotions which can lead to behavior problems, depression, and anxiety.  TF-CBT is a conjoint child and parent psychotherapy approach for children and adolescents (3-18) who are experiencing significant emotional and behavioral difficulties related to traumatic life events. I am also trained in EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy)
