Attachment and other mental health disorders can be difficult to understand, especially if you do not live with it. We have provided a safe place for friends and family to come and ask questions. It is a closed group on Facebook, so you can be added upon request. Many thanks for your desire to understand more about how to help someone raising a child with trauma or another mental health disorder.
There are many therapists in the area doing great work in many modalities. We tend to see switching modalities, to match the developmental needs of your child at that time, to work the best.
Please contact us if you have questions in regards to locating a therapist that may work best for your family.
