Dr. Rivas joined Meier Clinics in 2001 and currently serves as the Director of Breakaway, Meier Clinics' after school program for teens. She also sees children, teens, and parents for a wide range of concerns within outpatient counseling. Dr. Rivas describes her therapy style as eclectic, integrating cognitive behavioral, insight oriented, and psychodynamic approaches into counseling, in addition to utilizing dialectical behavior therapy. She offers play therapy that is formatted to allow even young children with very limited verbal skills to do significant healing work in individual therapy. This is often the most comfortable and effective method of therapy to use with some elementary aged children as well as preschool children.
Dr. Rivas sees adults for biblical conflict resolution, parenting issues, postpartum depression, and pregnancy concerns as well. She received training in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Parts I and II in 2006 and uses EMDR to help clients when traumatic experiences are still negatively impacting their present life. Additionally, Dr. Rivas provides psychological testing for children, teenagers, and adults for ADHD, learning disorders, and other evaluation questions.
Some client concerns she works with include the following:
Abuse, Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.H.D./A.D.D.), Addictions, Anger, Anxiety, Attachment Issues, Depression, Eating Disorders, Family Conflicts, Grief/Loss, Relationships, School Problems, Self-Injury, Spiritual Concerns, and Trauma
Dr. Rivas also provides Christian therapy at the Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center for girls and women recovering from addictions, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-injury, and trauma. ere she teaches a soul-making group, designed to help clients understand and apply life-changing Biblical truth to their recovery journeys.
Dr. Rivas received her Master's and Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. Dr. Rivas completed a year long specialty training in Child Development and Infant Mental Health at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. She received training through Peacemakers Ministry, learning how to address interpersonal conflicts in a Biblically faithful manner in 1996 to 1998. Dr. Rivas worked as a Dupage County home visitor for the Fussy Baby Network prior to joining Meier Clinics, and she has been licensed in the state of Illinois as a Clinical Psychologist since 2001.
