Welcome

We are dedicated to guiding adults on their journey toward recovery from the lasting effects of parentification experienced during childhood.

Parentification (also known as Adultification or Role Reversal) occurs when children are forced into adult roles and responsibilities prematurely, often at the expense of their own emotional well-being. This can lead to a myriad of challenges in adulthood, from difficulty forming healthy relationships to struggles with self-esteem and identity.

At Renee Diane Trauma Therapy & Psychiatric Care, we harness the power of Written Exposure Therapy (WET) as a transformative tool for healing. WET is an evidence-based approach that guides individuals through the process of confronting and processing past traumatic experiences in a structured and supportive manner.

Through a holistic approach tailored to your unique needs, which may include psychotherapy, medication management, and collaboration with your other healthcare providers, we will work together to unpack the layers of past experiences, heal emotional wounds, and cultivate resilience. Whether you're struggling with anxiety or depression or navigating the complexities of interpersonal relationships, We are here to provide compassionate support every step of the way.

Together, we will embark on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment, helping you reclaim your sense of self and find inner peace. Take the first step towards healing today and rediscover the joy and fulfillment you deserve.

Written Exposure Therapy

Rapid Trauma Recovery

(In As Few As Five Sessions)

Written Exposure Therapy (WET) is a therapeutic intervention designed to address symptoms related to trauma, particularly post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is a form of cognitive-reprocessing that utilizes a structured and evidence-based approach to reduce distress associated with traumatic memories. Developed as a brief and targeted intervention, WET typically involves a series of sessions in which individuals write about their traumatic experiences in a detailed and organized manner.

WET follows a specific and structured format for writing about traumatic events. It is designed to be systematic and focuses on detailed recounting of the trauma. The intervention involves repeated exposure to the traumatic memories through the act of writing. This repeated exposure aims to desensitize individuals to the distressing aspects of their memories.

WET targets specific traumatic events rather than addressing a broader range of emotions or life experiences. The focus is on addressing symptoms directly related to the traumatic incident. The intervention emphasizes the emotional processing of traumatic memories. It encourages individuals to explore and express their thoughts, feelings, and sensory details associated with the traumatic event.

Assessment and Preparation:

 

The therapist assesses the individual's suitability for WET and provides information about the intervention. Safety measures and coping strategies are discussed to ensure that the individual is prepared for the emotional content.

Writing Sessions:

During each of the 5 session, the individual is guided to write about the traumatic event in detail. This includes exploring thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, and contextual details associated with the trauma.

Review and Processing:

 

The therapist and individual review the written material in subsequent sessions. This process involves discussing the emotional responses, identifying cognitive patterns, and addressing any challenges that may arise during the writing and review phases.

Closure and Follow-Up:

 

The intervention concludes with closure and a discussion of the individual's progress. Follow-up sessions may be scheduled to monitor long-term outcomes and provide additional support if needed.
