We strive to provide competent, attachment-based, trauma-informed therapies to those who seek stronger connections, emotional healing and wellness, lasting relationships, and loving family lives.
We use state-of-the-art therapeutic approaches coupled with the genuine healing power of personal resonance and emotionally "being with" everyone involved in their therapeutic process. Our modalities include and are not limited to EMDR, Neurofeedback, Internal Family Systems, Theraplay, Somatic and Polyvagal Neuroscience Interventions, and Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy.
We believe that Love Matters in every relationship. We practice therapy that way, too.
We welcome individuals, couples, children, teens, and families.
I am an Attachment and Trauma Specialist and the founder of The Attach Place Center for Strengthening Relationships, LLC. I've been seriously focused on supporting and being a part of healing for individuals and families for 35+ years. It's a little hard to believe it has been that long. When you love what you do, there is no such thing as work.
The Attach Place was conceived in response to my futile and broad sweeping attempts to get help with the attachment challenges and trauma of my two young children adopted from the foster care system 24+ years ago. These days, I am considered an expert in the post-adoption field and it has become my life's mission to support adoptive parents to heal the wounded hearts of their children while thriving at the same time.
As I have continued to grow our attachment and trauma practice, I have expanded my interest and knowledge-base to include neurofeedback, polyvagal neuroscience interventions, and psychedelic supported therapies, specifically Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP).
I am delighted to share with you the expertise of The Attah Place staff: Jen Nguyen, LMFT, Alcira Ascencio, LMFT, and Andrea Kersten, Register Associate MFT.
Together, we continue to grow our understanding and deep practice of "being with" those who are healing from the every day painful events of life, as well as the extra-ordinary traumas that can derail relationships from the beginning of life and anywhere along the life span.
I believe this in my bones -- Love Matters.
Love, and the right kind of support.
Welcome to The Attach Place.
See you soon,
We are delighted to provide neuroscience-based attachment and trauma-informed services to Individuals, Couples, Children/Teens & Families.
Our specializations include therapeutic support for Pre-Conception/Pregnant/Peripartum/Early Childhood-Caring Women, a comprehensive Post-Adoption Parenting and Treatment Program, Complex Trauma Therapy, Neurofeedback, and Ketamine-Assisted-Psychotherapy (KAP).
We offer a therapeutic modality called Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP): the use of Ketamine as a complement to psychotherapy. We deliver KAP in our practice in partnership with an organization called Journey Clinical, which has a specialized medical team that determines eligibility for KAP, prescribes ketamine lozenges, and supports us in monitoring outcomes. This is a neuroscience-based, FDA approved treatment for enhancing neuroplasticity to support deep change in resistant symptoms of depression, anxiety, and complex PTSD. While we provide excellent trauma-focused psychotherapy for our KAP clients, if you want to use your own therapist for the psychotherapy, we regularly collaborate with other therapists to enhance the treatment you are already receiving without the complication of adding another clinician. Be sure to schedule a free consultation to get information about how this might work for you.
