At times families can experience disharmony and conflict. I work with the whole family from an attachment therapy approach to nurture change and growth in family relationships. I utilize a variety of creative strategies to engage family members differently with one another to foster cooperation, mutual respect, understanding and empathy. We explore the different family member's perspectives and how this influences patterns of interactions. I focus on empowering each family member to have a voice in the healing process.

I have experience in the areas of early developmental and emotional trauma, motor vehicle accidents, sexual abuse and I am currently enrolled in a specialized three-year body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma called Somatic Experiencing, or SE. I completed a four-year post graduate program in Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP) with a strong focus on early developmental trauma and attachment injuries. IBP is a comprehensive body-centered model of therapy that combines breathing, movement and presence to gain access to the wisdom of the body – something that is often interrupted, no longer accessible or just too scary to connect to after a traumatic event or series of traumatic injuries. I am compassionate, emotionally present and take a gentle approach to working with individuals. Charlene's Full Bio

It is important to learn stress management and emotional regulation techniques in order to move away from being stuck in a constant state of stress response (fight or flight). Processing and integrating traumatic events will occur gradually and within the safety of a collaborative therapeutic relationship.
I have taken training related to prolonged exposure therapy as well as trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy and have worked with adults diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and acute stress disorder.
