There is never a wrong time to start therapy, nor is there a right one. We won’t worry about right or wrong, but instead we’ll accept where you are - as we work together to discover where you want to go and how to get there. I spend a lot of my free time hiking, seeking out new and interesting terrain. The growth you will hopefully experience during our work together may be much like a challenging hike, with some gentle slopes and triumphant summits, but also with trips, stumbles, and strenuous climbs. I cannot climb your mountains for you, but I will climb them with you and help to show you the way forward.

Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.

It's hard for anyone to talk about personal issues. Anyone brave enough to do this launches themselves into a life giving process that increases the possibilities of their lives forever. It brings about unbelievable changes opening possibilities never thought of. It's hard work. It's scary. But it teaches one to live effectively with what life has brought and create changes that enhance the life that is. It's a journey into the good and the bad that takes a person to new heights. It's an exploration that creates love and light in a life.

***I am not currently accepting new clients.***I believe that therapy is a collaboration. As a therapist my first step is to help clarify why therapy is sought. From there we work together to develop strategies for relief, in the short and long term. My role is to provide information about the treatments that could be pursued; with information and context, one can then make informed choices about the best path forward. Common treatment options include: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness interventions. A brief treatment is usually all that is needed, but I offer longer-term depth work when required.

I believe each of us has innate healing powers that, with some support and guidance, can be better accessed to promote lasting change. While my techniques are catered to my client's needs, typically I blend experiential, somatic, mindful and cognitive techniques; this is typically achieved with the use of EMDR. This approach will provide you practical tools to cope with and overcome the problems you are experiencing, while also helping to heal the underlying causes of those problems.

My approach is gentle, and heart-centered. It is also good science, grounded in a clinical training devoted to strengthening the bonds with oneself and others. What initially may seem stuck or unbearable is introduced to your own source of health and change. The opportunity in crisis, and the wisdom within torments, is something you will begin to notice. This noticing begins the discovery that we can, each of us, even within the most strained partnerships, bring ourselves to an authentic, courageous stance. And ultimately toward an ever-deepening Love, inside and out. Your experience of this forms the heart of what I offer.

Dissociative Disorders (Amnesia, Multiple Personality) Therapists
Dissociative Disorders are conditions that involve the breakdown of memory. Dissociation is a mental process that produces a lack of connection in our thoughts, a separation of emotions, physical sensations, memories, actions or even our sense of identity. Most of us experience mild dissociation in our everyday lives. We call it daydreaming, getting lost in a movie or a book, or driving home on autopilot. These examples of dissociation are normal, and are a mild form of amnesia. Dissociation can become a disorder when it begins during a person's developmental years and becomes habitual and ingrained. If you're looking for help with dissociative disorders in Charlottesville or for a Charlottesville dissociative disorder therapist these professionals provide therapy for dissociative disorders. They include dissociative disorder therapists, dissociative disorder psychologists, dissociative disorder psychotherapists and dissociative disorder counselors. They can help with amnesia, memory problems, and loss of recall resulting from emotional trauma.
