Bernadette Cachara, PsyD, Psychologist in Carlisle
I am a Licensed Psychologist with over 10 years of experience in working with children and adolescents. My specialized training and clinical experience have provided me with a solid foundation to help children and teens struggling emotionally and behaviorally. My areas of interest included childhood trauma, anxiety, self-esteem, parenting difficulties as well as school refusal. I am passionate about the work I do. I emphasize a warm and collaborative environment which will allow trust to build and change to occur.
Emotional and behavioral struggles impact both the individual and the family system. My directive therapeutic approach works with all aspects of a child's world to maximize success. My training in trauma focused therapy has allowed for a solid understanding of trauma and its effects on individuals.
My office is equipped with both traditional office space as well as a separate therapeutic play room. A one way mirror between the offices allows for parent-child observation and coaching. The office represents a warm and non-judgmental environment to assist you and your child in creating meaningful and lasting change.
