Dr. Hughes takes a collaborative approach to treat trauma and PTSD in children and adults. Working with the patient, she develops a personalized treatment plan using evidence-based practices. By using standardized assessments to help document and track sessions, patients are able to see their progress in real time. Dr. Hughes treats patients of all ages, from infants to seniors.
As a certified infant mental health professional, Dr. Hughes is uniquely trained to treat PTSD in children ages 0-5 using child-parent psychotherapy. She also specializes in the treatment of trauma related to injury or medial trauma and works directly with orthopedic and trauma surgeons. Patients value her honesty and personable nature.
