Infant and Toddler/Early Childhood Mental Health – specialization in providing mental health therapy appropriate for children birth to 5 years old. Services will always involve parents and supporting both the parent and child together. I have received an Endorsement for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship-Focused Practice Promoting Infant Mental Health (IMH-E ®) as a mentor with the Colorado Association for Infant Mental Health. http://coaimh.org/about-us/
Parent Consultation – Parents have had many questions throughout the years. They often want to talk about how they can support their child before diving into therapy for their child. These session are offered at a discounted rate, since they are not considered therapy, and focus specifically on behavioral goals/challenges identified for improvement. Parents can expect to learn strategies, resources, and information on development while they receive support for their specific needs. Children do not need to be present and insurance cannot be used for this service.
Trauma– I have been trained in several interventions that support adults and children in processing events that were traumatic. This might include the birth experience, medical interventions, car accidents, family dynamics/toxic relationships, as well as generational trauma passed down through parent-child relationships. Many people are surprised to hear that children can experience and be impacted by trauma at any age, even before they can verbally express themselves. This can look like behavioral challenges, but is often addressed through trauma treatment. For more information please check out The Scary Stuff.
Supervision – specializing in clinical supervision for mental health providers working with children and families, as well as reflective supervision for any provider working with infants and toddlers. I am endorsed by the Colorado Association for Infant Mental Health as a Mentor for clinical practice and have many years of experience providing both reflective and clinical supervision.
