Dr. Claire Vines, Doctor in Clinical Psychology, is licensed and Diplomate with the Psychotherapy Association. (DAPA). A Licensed Marriage and Family Counselor, Licensed, Certified Trauma Therapist.
Her treatment emphasis is to help reduce life's struggles, by bringing awareness and proper life perspectives to difficult painful moments and negative emotions, associated to traumatic memory, often leading to feeling of depression, stress, and anxiety.
" I focus on the regulation of emotions and psychological factors related to traumatic injury."
I believe that before an individual will experience emotional freedom in the present and moving forward, a person must address internalized, reflective, unattended 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.
Dr. Claire, will adapt a tailored approach best suited for you as the individual. She will provide therapy, one-on-one, by telephone and online, to fit your personal need. Emotional focused treatment models, Attachment Theory, Psychodynamic, and Positive Psychology are incouraged.
The Initial consultation often addresses the situation and emotional conflict in the moment, to finding the most effective resolution towards the long term process.
I will work with 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.
