I work with individuals and couples who are experiencing difficult life transitions by helping them to turn their challenges into sources of individual growth and strength. I use a Psychodynamic/Integrative approach, utilizing Mindfulness, Cognitive therapies, Imaginal/Dreamwork, and EMDR. My areas of focus include Grief and Loss, Depression, Anxiety, Panic disorders and Midlife Transitions. I also have specific experience with Cult Recovery and Spiritual Crisis issues. I offer online and phone sessions for anyone who would like to work with me from their home, and have found this to be an extremely beneficial platform for therapy.

Rarely is the step towards seeking help from a therapist easy, or without contemplation. Here is a description of what I've found works best. During our first meeting, I engage you in a process to help you find the best fit possible for your particular needs. Together we can work on defining the right type and style of treatment best for you. We can define specific needs for either long or short term problems that are specific to you individually. This short process will give needed direction to your personal journey.

Some are burdened with a sense of disconnection from others. Many come to believe that they are isolated without hope. Joining the tapestry of humanity, learning about the beloved, and understanding the language of relationships are some of the benefits of insight oriented psychotherapy. Often depression, anxiety and fears, loneliness and even psychosis begin with isolation.This isolation is made intolerable by disappointments and trauma. Self-knowledge is the beginning of healing. From self knowledge comes self-control, humility, and a sense of purpose. The staff at New Dawn Psychology Center strives to help you overcome life's trials and tribulations.

I work with people on a body, spirit, mind approach to mental wellness. For so long, it was believed that the mind came first, and we could talk or think our way into feeling better. My approach is looking at mental wellness from a different direction. The Body Approach: I use several somatic therapy interventions to help create safety within the body, so clients can manage their symptoms and make the changes they want in their lives. We work together to understand the states of the nervous system and apply calming techniques, such as mindfulness, movement, tapping, music, and breath.

Too often psychotherapy focuses on causality, pathology and cures. However, rather than being "sick" or 'broken", often we are just lost inside ourselves or relationships. Everyone is a unique person with their own story, experience and perspective. The goal of therapy is to achieve a deeper awareness of where we are, to discover internal meaning for our many experiences, and to experience a life worth living. While working towards that awareness, I also feel it important to teach individuals, couples and families the skills needed to cope with the pain and day to day stressors that bring them into therapy.

I believe that whatever the reason you are seeking therapy, successful transformation requires a strong foundation of trust and openness between you and your therapist. With the genuine love and respect I have for all people, I establish this type of foundation, providing the warm & accepting environment needed to create a meaningful therapeutic experience... Together, we can uncover habitual self-defeating behaviors and attitudes that are keeping you stuck in a world where happiness & hopefulness have disappeared. With commitment to treatment and a desire to change, the happiness you thought was gone forever can resurface, & you will be able to find peace & contentment once again.

Therapy is guided self-exploration. Often, we repeat patterns because the emotional wounds suffered as children are being replayed in our adult life. We have a subconscious fear of experiencing feelings of abandonment and this drives codependent patterns of relating. Repeated neglect of yourself to get validation from an external being is the definition of codependency. You can break this cycle of trauma bonding and devote yourself to YOU.

SEXUAL healing: I can listen to any story - those uncomfortable experiences that are hard to talk about, the confusion over how to use sexuality well. The sexual shame. I have heard it before. Come tell me what you haven't been able to say. It's all confidential. I help with abuse history when needed, sexual addiction, and issues of couples that interfere with loving each other. I have written books on how to heal sexuality individually or as a couple. I also work with smart and GIFTED people, understanding how it makes you feel separate, sometimes isolated. This could be because you really are different.

Spirituality Therapists

What should I expect from therapy that incorporates a focus on spirituality?

Spirituality can mean different things to different individuals, depending on their experiences, beliefs, and life histories. Some individuals focus on strengthening their belief system, while others experience spirituality in secular ways, such as through meditation, yoga, or by spending time in nature. Clients can expect a therapist to help guide and grow their spirituality through any of these techniques, encouraging the individual to cope with the challenges they face and develop strategies to build resilience and purpose to improve their outlook in life.

What are the most common treatments that include spirituality?

There are several treatments that incorporate spirituality. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) helps a person examine and reframe their negative thoughts and behaviors. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) focuses on emotional acceptance and psychological flexibility. Existential therapy is most often used to address anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, apathy, despair, questions of identity, and feelings of purposelessness and existential dread. Transpersonal therapy focuses on a client’s spirituality and meaning in life and may incorporate techniques including meditation, visualization, hypnotherapy, dream analysis, and or breathwork.

Can therapy incorporating spirituality help atheistic or agnostic individuals?

Yes. For non-believers, spirituality can offer benefits including a greater sense of connection to others and to the natural world. An interest in spirituality may also spur individuals to pursue mindfulness practices, or to contemplate their purpose in life and how to achieve it.

How effective is spirituality as a therapeutic remedy?

​​Research suggests spirituality is generally beneficial for individuals. It is correlated with better health habits, such as less substance use, and an improved capacity to cope with stress and other mental health challenges. Increased spirituality can lead individuals to become more empathic and less materialistic, as well.
