I love working with people that are ready to explore change. Everyone gets stuck from time to time. Coming to terms with loss and pain is never easy. Loss can come in the form of actual bereavement or in through accepting difficult events or even a difficult diagnosis, If you would like to try to address your reaction to trauma, loss, or even addictive relationships to substances and activities, I would love to work with you. I have comfort and familiarity in working with bipolar disorder , ADHD, PTSD and anxiety. I hope to work with people who are seeking their highest expression of selfhood and are willing to look inside.

com is geared toward depression, bipolar and other mood disorders and I have worked for a number of years serving people with those difficulties.
People are often drawn to therapy when they are struggling and in pain, when they are in a time of transition, or when they feel themselves to be on the edge of growth. Often these areas overlap. I have been a practicing psychotherapist for decades and I continue to deeply appreciate the journey of healing and discovery that therapy can be. Where are you on your journey? What type of support and connection are you seeking? I make an effort to return calls within 24 hours. Please reach out if you need more information or would like to hear a human voice.

My specialty involves working with trauma and mood disorders including those with depression, bipolar , and/or anxiety.
As a counselor, I am passionate and dedicated to connecting with people to assist them through any challenges they may be facing. I embrace the strong belief that individuals need to hold a focus on healing rather than not feeling. My approach involves bringing those feelings and memories we try to avoid to the front of our consciousness to process and heal from them in more appropriate and healthy ways. I enjoy working with adults that stem from a variety of backgrounds. In individual, couple, and group settings, I offer a safe, caring, and compassionate environment for all individuals seeking support.

Limited to adults, my online-only practice serves individuals experiencing Depression, Bipolar Disorder , PTSD, Anxiety, & other stressors.
Psychotherapy is a confidential and creative relationship where you may find the power to heal, grow, explore, deepen, and transform. I believe in treatment that is engaging, dynamic, inspiring, and integrated where the provider is supportive, humble, inquiring, inquisitive, challenging, and honest. You may be experiencing life at the harshest, most cruel moment or suffering where no one seems to understand. Emotional distress from depression, anxiety, anger, grief, loss, and trauma often feels much worse than any physical pain. Perhaps you want to make a change, expand your relationships and find meaning in your world.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists

What is the most successful approach to treating bipolar disorder?

Living with bipolar disorder can be challenging, and a number of therapies have been found effective in providing support to patients as they gain the skills to understand and manage the disorder. Family-focused therapy is often helpful for children and teens (the majority of cases develop before age 19); it aims to minimize mood cycling by improving family communication and reducing conflict. It also helps young people navigate the developmental challenges the disorder can create. Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) and variants such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) help patients manage the thoughts and feelings that influence bipolar mood swings as well as develop specific behavioral strategies to counteract them.

What happens in therapy for bipolar disorder?

Because the patterns of mood switching and its triggers differ for each person and can change over time, mood tracking or monitoring becomes a basic way patients learn about the nature of their condition. One of the most common features of therapy is finding a workable method of mood monitoring, in which patients track their daily activities and rate their moods, then use the findings to adjust routines accordingly. Patients learn ways of handling the many stresses that arise in life so that they do not trigger mood swings.

What kinds of problems does therapy help with?

Like many other mental health disorders, BPD is heavily influenced by stress; therapy provides skills for coping with stressors of all kinds. Therapy is extremely important for helping individuals identify the situations that may trigger mood switching, so that mood swings can be prevented. Therapy may especially target recognition of the early stages of mood change so that they can be managed. In addition, therapy helps patients deal with the significant amount of turbulence the disorder can create in relationships and in work life.

What is the goal of therapy for bipolar disorder?

Therapy helps patients set up their lives to maintain stability so that their mood isn’t constantly threatened by daily events. Perhaps the first task of therapy is to educate people about the nature of the disorder. At the same time, a primary goal of therapy is to enhance adherence to drug treatment. Extended periods of mood stability can prompt patients to discontinue medication, triggering relapse, while the early phases of manic episodes can feel so energizing that patients stop medication, ushering in full-blown mania and the altered self-perception that can lead to destructive behaviors. Another major goal of therapy is to understand one’s mood patterns so as to minimize both the frequency and intensity of mood cycling.
