Dr. Cargill is a seasoned professional with extensive experience and skill at assisting adoptive families. Her practice focuses on providing services to very young and elementary aged children and their families.

“I have been providing counseling for children and their families since 2000, with roughly 90% of my caseload adoptees and their families. I believe in the power of healing, and possess a great deal of hope for children who have experienced even very severe early childhood trauma. I am honored to be invited into this healing process, and make every effort to support the children and their families as they embark on their journeys toward emotional and behavioral health.”

“In my private practice, I specialize in the treatment of children who have experienced early childhood trauma, including prenatal exposure to toxins and alcohol (FASD & related neuro-developmental disorders), attachment disruptions and loss (RAD and related issues), PTSD, anxiety and depression issues. I am also an Adoption Competent clinician, having received PACC Certification in 2013. I utilize a number of modalities to help children and their families on their healing journeys, including Play Therapy and EEG Biofeedback/Neurofeedback training. I incorporate a systems model within all of my sessions, actively including a family-focus to the work and integrating support and intervention in other realms of the child’s lives.”
