Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Karen Adamson "Ren helps individuals (over the age of ten) heal and release the lingering effects of childhood trauma that often lead to long-standing emotional and behavior patterns. She works with clients on all aspects of adoption and attachment issues.

For me, insight is only truly valuable if it leads to concrete positive changes. When I work with a client to explore and understand their past, it is always with the goal of improving their present and future. We focus on putting legs on those insights – on building skills to help regulate emotions, increase interpersonal effectiveness and better tolerate distress.

I also use Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy to gently get past the ego's defenses and find the root of an issue more quickly than is possible with conventional therapy. In a relaxed state of consciousness we can release old negative emotions, get underneath self-sabotaging patterns of behavior and open the heart to approach difficulties from a place of love and self-acceptance."
