Claire Vines, a Doctor in Clinical Psychology, is a licensed, certified marriage and family counselor, trauma therapist. Her treatment emphasis is in helping to reduce distress, depression, anxiety and negative effects triggered by traumatic experience.
" I focus on emotional regulation, externalization and the other psychological factors related past traumatic injury.
I believe that before a person is able to experience emotional freedom in the present, a person must address internalized, reflective, unattended negative emotions from the past.
When we think of a past event, we are actually remembering the last time we thought of that event, not the event itself.
I adapt a personalized approach, best tailored to each individual. I will provide therapy, one-on-one, face to face or online. My treatment approach is individually tailored. I encourage modalities related to emotionally focused, attachment theory, applying a Psychodynamic and humanistic foundation. I encourage creative expression to the authenticity self."
The Initial consultation works with the present, the existing situation and finding the most effective solution.
Many children and adolescents living with parents who struggle emotionally from a separation, divorce or loss. A child will often model parents symptoms, as a way of identifing with the parent. When a child becomes effected by parents emotional conflicts, initially, conjoint sessions are encouraged. Therapeutic counseling can become a safe-haven for the child, where the child can better understand and cope his/her family transition and the restructured family patterns.
