About

Promoting healing & trustworthy engagement for children, youth, their families, adults who come seeking shelter, emotional safety and refuge (see abbeypsychservices.com). Even the youngest demonstrate remarkable strengths with precise, attuned, attention to their levels of awareness, given new experiences to help transform distorted cognitive appraisals of themselves, others, relationships, the world. Working together, we cultivate more accurate appraisals of internal/external experience, shift into clearer, more realistic thinking, enhanced empathy, healthier, more effective coping styles. We co-create new, hopeful, cooperative stories to replace hopeless, repetitive, "traumatic reliving" within the safety of a predictable, nurturing, skillfully maintained therapeutic environment.
20 years of doctoral level applied clinical experience as a Child Fam Trauma Psychologist, scientist-practitioner, professor, supervisor, researcher, providing evidence & need-based relational, trauma responsive therapy for children/adults, informed by psychological assessment. Assessment ensures accuracy, precision conceptualization, access to core issues rather than merely overt behaviors, self-reported symptoms. Global Humanitarian, alwaysbelisteningglobal.com

Marilee G. Ruebsamen's Groups

Lovingkindness

'Bienveillance' is the French world for 'metta', translated as 'lovingkindness' --- watching over, 'taking care' with kindness; - a bit like 'surveillance' with friendly, benevolent intention. While our lives are ephemeral, intangible, how we live and what we do matters and lives on beyond us. The way we are present remains, internalized in the memories and internal representations of others.

More about this group

Mindful, Compassionate Parenting

Attuned, empathic, effective parenting is characterized by mindful awareness, the ability to be reflective rather than hostile and reactive, "seeing beyond what is", practicing clarity with intentionality, flexibility, and compassion: and it is as ever-evolving as children and life itself are, per Daniel Siegel, "from the inside out". Groups are need- and relationship-based, offered in response to requests from parents whose issues are similar and who appear likely to benefit from sharing and working together. Please email Dr. Ruebsamen at marileerueb@yahoo.com for brief interview.
