Psychologist in Teaneck NJ 07666, NJ
I have taught college level courses covering the subject of attachment theory. Furthermore, I co-led a year long attachment based group for adults involved with Department of Child Services in the state of Indiana, where the goal was to repair the attachment system of the parent in question, and teach them how to cultivate healthy attachment with children. I also ran a group that targets the symptoms of insecure attachment, such as emotional regulation skills, boundary setting, and assertiveness
My experience in this area include, creating, and running an anger-management group in an acute partial hospitalization program. Furthermore, I co-developed an anger-management curriculum for justice involved youth in Bergen county.
As a therapist who focuses on trauma, and attachment, I find that these issues are heightened when dealing with moments of transition. The stress of the unknown, can exacerbate symptoms of existing disorders, and I have worked in college settings where young adults are navigating the challenges of transitioning into adulthood. I have received 2 years of extensive supervision on this topic, and I am proficient in guiding individuals through various transitions.
Trained to focus on therapeutic relationship, transference, and countertransference.
Practiced from this approach for several years, including a year long rotation during my internship training year, which involved lectures, practical components, and one-on-one supervision.
Trained in EFT, and was part of a couples therapy research lab, giving me practical training, and pedagogic knowledge.
