Certified in various therapy modalities

Clinicians at The Healing Place Therapy Center are trained in several modalities and offer psychotherapy treatment using all of the interventions listed below:

Play Therapy

Young children developmentally do not possess the vocabulary necessary to fully process complex challenges such as anxiety, depression, bullying, parental separation, and trauma.

For these children Play Therapy is recommended so that children can utilize toys as tools to express their emotions and receive validation. This form of therapy is grounded in Humanistic theories of behavioral intervention and is ideal for young children (ages 2-12).

This therapy gives children the safe space to express themselves and develop emotional resiliency. Treatment is delivered in 30 – 45 minute sessions over a period of approximately 10-20 weeks with clients reporting improvement within the first few weeks of treatment. For more information about this type of therapy, click here.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy

Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based form of Family Therapy designed to address behavior and attachment concerns in young children (ages 2-9).

This therapy coaches parents to handle defiance and opposition in a consistent andeffective manner. It also helps parents form and strengthen healthy attachments to their children through play and positive reinforcement.

This therapy involves a high degree of parent involvement. It also offers a fast response and high success rate. Treatment is delivered in 45 – 50 minute sessions over a period of 12-20 weeks with parents reporting improvement within the first three weeks of treatment.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment aimed at addressing a range of emotional disturbances including depression, anxiety, irritability, low self-worth, high stress, and negative thinking. This form of therapy involves a therapist working one on one with a client to identify the symptoms and beliefs that make clients feel stuck and supplying strategies to get unstuck. These strategies involve learning new coping skills, receiving education about symptoms, developing safety plans, and titrated exposure to traumatic memories. This therapy creates a sense of resiliency and renewal for those that have experienced loss, persecution, victimization, or other form of trauma. This form of therapy is appropriate for older children, adolescents, and adults. Clients report improvements within the first few weeks and length of treatment is dependent on each individual client.

Trauma & Grief Component Therapy for Adolescents

Trauma & Grief Component Therapy is an innovative treatment modality that addresses the complex needs of youth that have experienced the death of a loved one or experienced a similar form of major attachment disruption. TGCT-A is a manualized, assessment-driven treatment for trauma-exposed or traumatically bereaved older children and adolescents. This form of therapy involves a therapist working one on one with a client to identify the interplay of trauma and grief symptoms and how they impact behavior and mood. The modular design of these treatment makes it customizable for the specific youth needs and varying lengths of treatment. This form of therapy is appropriate for older children, adolescents, and young adults (10-20). Clients report improvements within the first few weeks and length of treatment is dependent on each individual client.

Sandtray Therapy

Sandtray Therapy is a unique therapeutic intervention grounded in Jungian Analytic and Gestalt theories of psychotherapy. Often used as an adjunct to more traditional forms of verbal therapy, Sandtray Therapy encourages clients to project psychogenic conflict onto miniatures that can then be manipulated and therapeutically processed. This form of non-verbal / semi-verbal intervention has been used as a component in the treatment of anxiety, depression, early childhood trauma, and attachment wounds. Sandtray Therapy promotes healthy neurobiological integration and is adaptable adapted to therapeutic work with clients across the age spectrum (children, adolescents, and adults). Clients report the process of metaphorically representing their challenges and stuck points and metaphorically interceding provides a sense of validation, acceptance, empowerment, and direction.

Strengths-Based & Solution Focused Therapy

Clinicians at The Healing Place Therapy Center adapt a flexible, integrative blend of psychotherapy interventions when working with clients. We consistently draw heavily from the Strengths Based Approach grounded in social work theory and the pragmatic Solution Focused Therapy. From these evidenced-based perspective we help clients process through major life changes, trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, relationship challenges, divorce, anger and aggression, issues of intimacy, and many other psychosocial dilemmas. Clients of any age can benefit from this powerful blend of psychotherapeutic intervention. Clients typically meet with their therapist one on one for 45 – 50 minute sessions once per week. Clients report significant improvement after the first month of treatment and the length of treatment is dependent on each individual client.
