I started Abegglen Counseling over 6 years ago after working with children with disabilities and witnessing the struggles of those families on a daily basis. It was obvious that these unique families needed both behavioral and mental health supports in order to create and maintain the changes often necessary when their is a child with special needs in the family.
As a licensed special education teacher, professional counselor, and school counselor, with years of applied behavioral analysis experience and specific training in utilizing DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and Attachment-Focused Trauma Therapy, I am able to support you and/or your loved one as they begin their journey to living a happier, healthier life by modifying and combining different modalities in order to meet each clients unique needs.
As a certified Attachment Focused Trauma Therapist I also routinely work with adolescents and their families (or caregivers) to address any developmental/attachment traumas and help create a secure attachment between child and adult.
I also offer consultation services around behavior management and special education (IEP, school based behaviors, etc...) as well as Support Brokering for adults with disabilities who are in adult services. Finally I offer supervision for LPC-ITs.
