My Approach

“The truth is, you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation.”
Bruce D. Perry, The Boy Who was Raised a Dog: and Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist’s Notebook

The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics  

I am certified in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT). The NMT was developed by Dr. Bruce Perry, M.D., Ph.D. The NMT  is a developmentally-informed, biologically respectful approach to working with children and youth who have experienced developmental trauma. The NMT is rooted in a framework informed by neurodevelopment and trauma theory.  It does not involve a specific treatment or therapeutic intervention but rather, with the aid of a developmentally sensitive structured assessment, helps guide and inform my work with children and families.  For further information on the NMT, please visit

You can also take a moment to view the following YouTube videos relating to the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics, where Dr. Bruce Perry discusses key NMT concepts.
