Psychological assessments provide a structured way of gathering information on your current psychological functioning, including strengths and challenges in cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and interpersonal domains. We believe that it is extremely important for you to have a way to label your struggles that makes sense to you, and have a solid understanding of what we are targeting in treatment and why.
At Opened Heart Therapy we offer a variety of therapeutic approaches that can be used to address a broad array of difficulties. We work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to meet your unique needs, grounded in science, and guided by empirically-derived best practices. We continually monitor change to ensure that therapy stays useful and effective over time. Examples of our services include:
- Trauma-Related Therapy
Consultation & Supervision
As a long-time educator, mentor, and national-level consultant, Dr. Foynes is available to offer supervision and consultation to colleagues and agencies in a variety of areas. Consultation can be beneficial regardless of your level of experience of stage or career; we offer consultation to clinicians who are new to certain therapy modalities, clinical challenges, or client populations, as well as those who are very seasoned. Depending on your needs and preferences, we can utilize a more structured consultation approach integrating a combination of learning modalities (e.g., discussion, tape review, recommended readings and didactic trainings) and targeting specific learning goals, or a more unstructured one to address consultation questions on an as-needed basis as they emerge over time.
In addition to offering consultation and supervision in Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Dr. Foynes has also offered consultation in other domains such as:
- Helping doulas, midwives, obstetrician-gynecologists, and lactation consultants effectively support women who are trauma survivors or who have had experienced trauma or complications prenatally or during the birth process or postpartum period
- Generating new treatment directions or creative ways to feel unstuck with specific clients or group dynamics
- Developing and evaluating the effectiveness of treatment programs and groups
- Addressing vicarious trauma in mental and non-mental health professionals
- Helping non-mental health professionals (e.g., medical providers, physical therapists, administrative staff) interact with survivors in a trauma-informed way
- Developing and enhancing trauma-informed environments of care
In addition to offering individual supervision and consultation, Dr. Foynes is also available to consult with groups or agencies. Examples of past work include collaborating with the Victims Right’s Law Center, Spaulding Rehab’s Adaptive Sports Program, and Exposing the Silence Project.
