Therapy Services - Culpeper

Creative Solutions to Heal from Difficult Situations.

Creative Therapy Services support parents in a collaborative approach to learn new skills to respond effectively to their children's attachment needs. Trauma-informed parenting strategies support parents in understanding their children's often confusing behavior. Strengthening the parent-child relationship provides the child with internal security. A secure base will enable integrated trauma treatment to effectively work towards a decrease/resolution of behaviors and emotional reactivity related to traumatic material and dysregulated mind states.
