Claire Vines, Doctor in Clinical Psychology, is a licensed, certified marriage and family counselor and trauma therapist. Her treatment emphasis is in helping to reduce stress from life's difficult moments, symptoms of depression, anxiety and negative effects related to traumatic memory.
" I focus on the regulation of emotions and other psychological factors related to painful traumatic injury."
I believe that before an individual will experience emotional freedom, that 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.
I will adapt a suited approach best tailored for that individual. I will provide therapy, one-on-one, by telephone or online, to fit the the personal need. My treatment approach is individually tailored. I encourage treatment models that are emotionally focused, The treatments are connected to attachment theory, and Psychodynamic.
The Initial consultation addresses the present situation and finding the most effective resolution.
Many children and adolescents are 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.
