We examine how both your personal history (exposure to chronic stress; presence of diagnoses, etc.), combined with structural trauma/racism and experiences of oppression have impacted who you are, your overall development and current level of functioning. We combine education, historical perspective taking, and center both cultural and therapeutic practices to support growth, change and improved quality of life.
I have attended extensive training on attachment as it pertains to brain development and the development of both risk and resilience factors. I hold an advanced certificate in Adoptive and Foster Family Therapy, where major coursework was around attachment processes within various family settings.
I have extensive training in complex and developmental trauma; particularly as it impacts individual and relational functioning. I approach trauma work from a neurobiological and attachment frame. I provide parent coaching around trauma informed and developmentally appropriate parenting strategies; I work with Portland area schools providing training on trauma informed interventions for educators
