APPROACH TO COUNSELING

With that as the foundation to therapy, various theory techniques are used to approach treatment and/or intervention. She has experience working with families that are in crisis and child with a wide range of mental health issues and diagnosis such as : ADHD, ODD, Psychotic Disorder, intermediate explosive disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, PTSD, RAD, eating disorders, hoarding, and those on the autism spectrum. Davina is passionate about helping clients to find a sense of healing, restoration, wholeness, and growth after experiencing trauma, loss, and/or set-backs. She feels compelled to come along-side those that are struggling with identity issues, relational issues, and emotional disturbance or distress, to provide tools guidance, and support.
