Dr. Cibelli does infant mental health work with parents, play therapy with pre-schoolers and school-aged children, and object relations therapy with adolescents and adults. She encourages the exploration and building of better coping skills.
Dr. Cibelli is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and uses it with individuals who have experiences trauma.
Dr. Cibelli works with individuals with multiple personality. Unlike some in the field, she encourages these individuals to honor their alters and view them as an exquisite and very important coping mechanism born in response to serious long term abuse. Inscapes are developed and round-tables established with seats for all. The goal is open communication and decision-making. Integration is not a goal but viewed as a possible developmental outcome or individual choice.
Dr. Cibelli’s goal for each individual with whom she works is a return to and strengthening of one’s optimal healthy developmental trajectory.
