Life can often feel overwhelming with more struggle than joy. Relationships can break down due to poor communication and belief systems that no longer work. My strength is helping individuals, couples, and families identify and work through ineffective life patterns. Developing and restoring a sense of life purpose and inner strength can help discover new motivation to accomplish life goals. I am licensed in both CA & UT.

Anxiety and Depression can make you feel hopeless that change is possible. But there is a way out of that dark place and it is safe, full of hope, warmth, answers and joy. TRET is a therapy that comfortably and quickly gets to the roots of the issue and teaches you how to fully release what is holding you back from change. Once you clear out the roots, change is easy and natural. Clients tell me that it sometimes feels like a miracle, but the power of this therapy is rooted in science. It is simply working with an understanding of how memories are held in our bodies and subconscious mind. More knowledge equals more power to change.

Many of us strive to feel more productive, self-confident, and grounded. But when we also experience anxiety, depression, trauma, troubled relationships, illness, poor self-esteem or other challenges, achieving our goals can be difficult. That’s why working with a therapist can be a great choice. Teaming up with an attentive, well-trained therapist you will likely feel less alone, and your problems may begin to feel more manageable. You might be surprised that when you and your therapist examine your difficulties from new angles, you or your pre/teen will grow and change in ways you never expected.

Do you have trouble with anxiety, depression, and relationship/family issues due to trauma? Past experiences can create imprints onto your brain that activate your fight/flight responses whenever your emotions feel dysregulated, but life without the constant feeling of being on edge is possible. Those traumatic memories don’t have to permanently influence who you are meant to be. Through therapy, you will gain control of your feelings/thoughts and your response to everyday life hurdles. Healing from trauma can create healthier beliefs about yourself and your relationships along with sustainable changes.

Dissociative Disorders (DID) Therapists

How does therapy for dissociative disorders work?

Dissociation may be triggered by stress or other upsetting circumstances, and therapy can address the traumatic events at the core of an individual’s dissociation. Understanding why a person may dissociate can help the therapist and the individual come up with alternative methods of coping. A person with a dissociative disorder may get stuck on negative thinking, for example, and treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy is a gold standard for breaking such thinking. And dialectical behavior therapy, for example, can help a person manage their anguish through better emotion regulation.

Which therapies are best for dissociative disorders?

Specific approaches used by professionals include cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, psychodynamic, schema therapies, among others. Cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies are two widely used therapies that can help individuals with painful memories and past traumas. These therapies work to integrate an individual's different identities into one person.

Are there specific medications for dissociation?

There are no specific medications prescribed for dissociative disorders. However, psychosis, depression, anxiety, and/or panic often co-occur in dissociative disorders. A psychiatrist may prescribe medications for any accompanying symptom—which may include antipsychotics like aripiprazole, antidepressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or anti-anxiety drugs like benzodiazepines.

How often and how long are therapy sessions?

Like any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual. Patients may see improvement within 15 to 20 sessions, at an average of 50 minutes per session, others may opt for 20 to 30 sessions over, perhaps, a six-month period. There are still other patients, especially those who have co-occurring conditions like depression and anxiety, who may need to continue sessions for up to 12 to 18 months.
