I am a double board-certified nurse practitioner in family and psychiatric practice. I have been in practice since 2015, initially in family practice. I worked for a few years in a community health care clinic with patients from underserved populations. I became aware that my patients have complex medical healthcare problems and often have severe mental illnesses that were not treated. I realized that I needed to add a psychiatric specialty to become a competent psychiatric provider. I completed my psychiatric degree from the University of St. Francis. After graduation, I started to work with the underserved population again.

During my time working in primary care I have observed significant deficits in access to quality mental health care for both the geriatric and adult populations including patients with dementia, major depressive disorder, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and substance use disorder. I’ve become focused on helping fill in those gaps in care. So often medications are quickly prescribed to manage complex issues that need an interdisciplinary and holistic approach. I obtained my buprenorphine waiver to help contribute to a solution of the opiate crisis which I have seen devastate the lives of people of all ages.

Sometimes when we reach a place of safety in our lives, paradoxically symptoms can emerge, growing louder, calling our attention to care for ourselves in a new way. Maybe you feel stuck in the past. Or too busy worrying about the future to enjoy your life today. Perhaps you're bone-tired, overwhelmed, out of alignment, or don't feel like yourself. Or from the outside things appear great, and you wonder, why am I still a mess inside? Part of you feels ready to set down whatever pain burdens you. Let's get curious about that. If you're in WI or IL considering a new approach to your mental health, I would love to be a resource to you.

Sexual Abuse Psychiatrists

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
