Kris Imbrie's bio

This content was provided by Kris Imbrie " Through my education for Elementary Teaching I was able to get experience with Learning Disabilities, Emotional/Behavioral Disturbances, Deaf Education, Pre-School, Adolescents and Teen Mothers. I taught in various capacities for 15 years. I crossed over into the field of Social Work after taking a job in a Battered Woman's Shelter for 7 years and working in the Outreach Office creating Violence Prevention Programs (for which I won 2 State Awards), and providing counseling. I went back to school at New York University for my MSW and became very interested in Developmental Traumatology. During that period I worked in a group home for Sexually Abused children and a group home for Chronically Mentally-ill Adults coming out of Greystone Psychiatric Hospital in New Jersey. Since 2004 I have been in private practice in Sparta, New Jersey. I have received training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Levels I and II). I do volunteer work for Project Self-Sufficiency in Newton, NJ and write a column on Parenting for their website. I look forward to finishing my book on Parent Education called Relational Parenting, and one on Techniques for Helping Children Process Trauma for Therapists."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Kris Imbrie "My Philosophy of care is that it needs to be effective and empowering.  I believe the current research on Brain Science supports techniques which permanently get at the residual dysregulation in the body from Trauma.  

It is crucial to help clients understand their own body reactions and learn to perceive them as they're happening. As tools are practiced they become the "go to" when these feelings are experienced. I believe in the empowerment of clients to take control of their lives by healing from trauma and learning new ways to cope.  

As opposed to the medical model, using medication to deal with suffering, I advocate for a more permanent solution. Medication often simply covers up the symptoms, like a band-aid.

As the client progresses, the brain actually changes and the window of safety grows. New experiences in the world seem not only possible, but desirable.  Using mind/body techniques for real healing, the client finally can reach their true potential. "
