Monica Blum, PhD, has worked with children, adolescents, adults and families for over 25 years. Stemming from her training as a child trauma therapist, Dr. Blum has “grown up” play and nonverbal/body-based techniques to fit clients of all ages. Dr. Blum practices eclectically, blending psychodynamic, family systems, and relational approaches with right brain-focused therapies including Play, EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Sensorimotor and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic psychotherapies. Dr. Blum has developed embodied mirroring, a body-to-body, relational technique that respectfully and creatively allows the therapist-client dyad to move through therapeutic impasses. She authored an article detailing this technique in the Journal of Psychotherapy Integration (2015). Dr. Blum conducts workshops on embodied mirroring, the use of right brain-based techniques in trauma work, child sexual abuse treatment and assessment, and parenting. She provides consultation and supervision for professionals and graduate students.
