In an ever-changing world, we need mental health care that doesn’t offer a false promise of a quick fix. It is difficult to pick up the phone to call a therapist — especially if you’ve never been to therapy before, or if you’re depressed, and you just ... can’t. I understand that and am here to walk you through. I believe that taking care of our mental health should be an ongoing and sustained practice that is celebrated instead of stigmatized. Instead of viewing therapy as only necessary when you are in a crisis, my hope is to break the mold and remind you that you deserve mental health support.

Whatever challenges life has brought you, it helps to have the support of a therapist and the power of music to help you through it. Music is a transformative and universal tool that has been accompanying humans on our paths for millennia, capable of clearing blocks, bringing insight, healing wounds, and opening new possibilities. No music experience is necessary to engage in music therapy; you need only a willingness to explore. I offer a holistic and humanistic approach; I believe the problems you are facing should be understood in the context of your full being, and that working from a foundation of full acceptance is essential.

If you are struggling in life, chances are you have a diagnosis which is termed a psychiatric disorder- but diagnoses only define the negative aspects of who you are! In fact, most "disorders" have a wealth of amazingly positive traits also associated with them. Together, you and I will work to uncover your superpowers- those positive traits that diagnoses don't cover, and which make you amazing. Some of the therapies I incorporate into my practice include art therapy, play therapy, guided visualizations and rituals, narrative therapy, practical life skills (CBT), Reiki, mindfulness and other relaxation techniques.

Alzheimer's (Dementia) Therapists
A progressive neurodegenerative disease, Alzheimers Disease slowly destroys an individual's memory, judgment, cognition and eventually ability to function. It represents an enormous burden on victims of the disease and their family alike.

Alzheimer's is characterized by memory loss, language deterioration, impaired ability to mentally manipulate visual information, poor judgment, confusion, restlessness, and mood swings.

Alzheimer's usually begins after age 65, but its onset may occur as early as age 40, appearing first as memory decline and, over several years, destroying cognition, personality, and ability to function. Confusion and restlessness may also occur. The early symptoms of AD, which include forgetfulness and loss of concentration, can be missed easily because they resemble signs of natural aging.

If you're looking for help for a friend or mother or father with alzheimer's in Durham or for a Durham alzheimer's therapist, these professionals provide alzheimer's help, alzheimer's therapy, alzheimer's counseling and alzheimer's treatment. They include alzheimer's therapists, alzheimer's psychologists and alzheimer's counselors. Therapists can help with testing for alzheimer's or diagnosis of alzheimers in Durham.
