Whatever your goals might be: whether you’re trying to begin a new chapter of your life or simply trying to navigate the hurdles of a challenging situation. Together, we will seek to define the obstacles standing in the way of these goals and begin the process of overcoming them.
At Rooted Works we offer services for a number of issues that pertain to different age groups: PTSD, depression, anxiety, self-harm, parenting support, relationship concerns, fears and phobias — just to name a few. We don’t offer a one-size-fits-all approach. We will get to know your particular needs and create a growth-oriented program based on them. You’ll not only be cared for here, but understood.
Never miss another session again! Whether you are going on vacation, moving away or simply can’t make it into the office, online counseling allows you to continue your sessions in a secure, HIPAA-compliant environment.
Therapy and coaching by FaceTime, Skype or phone can be a wonderful adjunct to in-office visits for busy professionals or for individuals who recently moved and would like to continue working together.
Getting fresh air and walking on the beach or boardwalk during the off season can help facilitate a deeper sense of peace. This can be helpful in releasing the tensions being processed during the counseling session.
CRANIO SACRAL THERAPY
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful modality that balances the body, mind and spirit. Cranio can bridge bodywork and talk therapy using a more creative/subconcious approach. Often times our emotional stressors or traumas can create an underlying tension that is hard to release. This can show up as sleeping issues, headaches, clenching the jaw, or a persistent edge.

There are many reasons a child may go to therapy. Sometimes everyday circumstances pose a challenge, other times more difficult situations arise that overwhelm the child in her/his ability to cope. Whether the challenge is the birth of a new sibling, starting school, a new school or if there has been some significant change in the child’s life like parental divorce, children often need a safe place to feel heard, gain some understanding of their situation, and the opportunity to work through their feelings.
Whether you as the parent notice some concerning behavior, or the school has voiced a concern, we feel it is useful to intervene early with children. The sooner one helps the child ‘get back on track’ the quicker the child can return to their regular developmental process.
Adolescence is one of the most difficult times in a person’s life. Children’s bodies are suddenly changing, hormones are ‘raging’, social expectations are at an all-time high and society is marketing to and placing a great deal of pressure on the adolescent. It is common for parents become worried about how to protect their child (both from him/herself and from others), Even when things go well, this is a very challenging time, particularly in our society. Counseling for teens can help. Sometimes kids need extra support to manage all of these pressures and challenges. Helping your adolescent come to a place in which they can enjoy the benefits of adolescence and learn to effectively manage the stresses is our goal.
We can treat a wide variety of issues that adults face, from those who simply want to succeed more in life to those struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar, grief, and relationship issues. While we help to uncover childhood and family experiences that are contributing to the current issues, our focus is more on helping the adults learn to live happily today rather than dwelling on the past. In addition to providing adults with a confidential and supportive environment to express themselves, we teach adults psychological tools and skills to use to make rapid and effective changes in their lives.
We provide counseling for couples who want to improve their communication and conflict resolution skills, as well as couples who are having more serious troubles and may be contemplating separation but want to save and restore their relationship. We work with the couple, taking a no blame approach where we do not side with either person, but instead help the couple identify the things they would like changed and work to find solutions that both parties can agree upon.
For parents that are sharing custody. Raising a child with a former spouse or partner can be perhaps the most difficult relationship any adult will have. Research shows that children from broken families do best when the parents get along and cooperatively co-parent. Easier said than done! We can make this difficult process easier by helping both parents learn the skills necessary to share custody and keep the child psychologically healthy and not a victim of the adult breakup. Typically this is initially done by meeting with each parent alone on alternating weeks, with the counselor serving as mediator and educator to help both parents learn to communicate and resolve conflicts for the best interest of the child. When the co-parents are ready, sessions may be scheduled with both parents together so they can learn how to work together eventually without the need of the psychologist. Co-parenting therapy is the best gift parents can give to their child.
Parent coaching can give you the support, guidance, and tools to feel confident, calm, and connected to your child. As an experienced therapist I will share valuable information on positive parenting techniques. We will work on self care strategies to be the best role model for your little ones.
We will use a mix of coaching and counseling techniques that focus on goals, understanding, action steps, and self improvement. The coaching and therapeutic process is very personal and catered to meet your specific needs.
