Below you will find resources surrounding the various forms of therapy I meld in order to nurture the therapeutic relationship and promote neuropsychological growth. There are quick videos that efficiently explore some of my favorite modalities. I truly believe in the power of psychoeducation. Knowing how the brain works allows us to destigmatize mental health and remove some of the shame we often feel while overwhelmed/activated/flooded/dysregulated. (Learn those terms!)
I have also included sites where you and your family may be able to find additional education and support no matter what you may be struggling with. Grief in all forms, Bereavement, Trauma, Dementia, Cancer, COVID-19 (survivors and intubation trauma, bereaved family members, healthcare professionals), Relational Issues, and more.
