Adult, Child and Family Counseling
Our counselors can help with assessment, behavior management, emotional healing, and parenting strategies.
Individuals deal with stress on a daily basis, leading to difficulties with anxiety and depression, and challenging relationships with family members or co-workers. Traumatic experiences can affect our current ability to live effectively. Our compassionate counselors will listen and provide guidance.
You can schedule and appointment, meet our team, and see our family counseling services at Arizona Family Counseling.
Integrative Treatment for Attachment Trauma
Foster and adoptive children deal with issues of loss, attachment trauma, and abuse/neglect. Often children who have experienced these issues exhibit differences in the brain, which may appear as inappropriate coping behaviors and delayed emotional and social growth.
Our skilled counselors use therapy techniques specially chosen to help these children and their caregivers.
By using play therapy our counselors help children suffering from difficulties like: separation, depression, abuse, post-traumatic stress, or the loss of a family member.
In a play therapy session, children are able to work through problems as they create a world they can master.
Trust-Based Relational Intervention
Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the needs of vulnerable children. TBRI uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors.
While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI is connection.
Family Coaching Services
Children do not come with owner’s manuals. Even if they did, each child is unique and has different needs and personalities. Parenting coaching services are designed for families needing a little extra help. These services are intended to be short-term in nature, with an emphasis on assessing needs and providing personalized guidance. Learn more.
