I’m excited to announce that I have earned a new certification, the CCTP: Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I will work with traumas of all kinds but my focus is on dissociative disorders, including Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly known as “multiple personality disorder”).
Traditionally, trauma treatments have focused on confronting the traumatic events and trying to remember as many of the details as possible. That’s not my approach! Focusing on the details of the traumatic events can be re-traumatizing, the exact opposite of what we want. We cannot change the past. The traumatic events have happened. What we CAN change, however, is how those traumatic events affect you today. So if you are interested in reducing the negative impact of the traumatic events in your present day life and not focusing on the original events themselves, I may be the therapist for you. If you’d like to find out, contact me (call or text 816-226-4678) to arrange a free 30-minute consultation. If we decide we’re not a good fit, I’ll be happy to give you the names of some therapists I believe would be helpful to you.
