Plum Tree's Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Program is exclusively for adolescents with self-destructive behaviors, including self-injury and suicidal behaviors.
Children want to do and be well. I help them overcome problems with real-life, age-fitting solutions. I help parents learn to more effectively support their children, realizing that--of course--you are the expert when it comes to your child. From there, we build on your child's strengths. There is no mystery or blind faith involved in mental health. I use evidence-based, collaborative, and child-friendly approaches.

But there are reasons why. Let's figure it out together, looking at your patterns & attachment style. If you have trauma, let's address it together, using EMDR and IFS. You'll also learn exercises that take just a few seconds to do, without anyone knowing, to reduce anxiety & depression.

I believe trauma often occurs within the context of a relationship and our trauma work will focus on having a healthy relationship within the context of therapy and with yourself. Grief is an ongoing process that takes time. Working through managing distress & emotions, and taking care of yourself can be both more difficult & easier than any of us thought possible.
