APPROACH TO TREATMENT
When working with children, Dorothy’s approach is child-centered, developmentally appropriate, and rooted in the principle of creating a safe and nurturing environment for children to express themselves. She recognizes the significant influence of the family on a child’s well-being and actively involves parents and caregivers in the therapeutic process. This involvement includes providing them with guidance, strategies, and resources to support the child’s progress at home. Dorothy’s work is grounded in trauma-informed care, and she takes cultural factors into account when tailoring her approach.
