- As a Licensened Professional Counselor (LPC) Jacinda
The DART (Developmental and Relational Trauma) model is an advanced training modality which helps a therapist guide a client through recovery from trauma. This model defines trauma as a “wound to the soul” or “less than nurturing” experiences occurring during the developmental years of life (ages 0-18). The model is based largely on the work of Pia Melody. The most helpful aspects of this treatment are that a person can resolve the pain of the past by getting the story straight, making connections with how it impacts their life today, nurturing and caring for the wounded parts of self, experientially addressing the sources of pain, and learning how to take ownership for their own recovery by becoming a functional adult. Becoming a functional adult requires learning the skills to navigate through life in a healthier and more authentic way.
Prepare and Enrich is a program for pre-marital couples who are seeking to find counsel prior to marriage, or couples who desire to learn skills for improving their current marriage. This curriculum begins with a couple’s assessment that will identify “strength” areas and “growth” areas for each couple. The benefit of this is that each couple will be able to work on specific skills that will aid in their ability to communicate and understand one another.
