Our mental health is so vital, but we often put it on the back burner to take care of "more important things". I am so glad you're here, which tells me that you are starting to consider prioritizing your mental health and emotional wellbeing. Sometimes, we try to "keep it all together" in order to focus on other things in our life, such as work, school, family, and relationships, without really realizing that our symptoms bleed into every single area of our life. When that happens, it can feel like our sadness, anxiety, anger, flashbacks, or whatever else, is affecting our ability to function normally and live a fulfilling life.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the central component to successful psychotherapy and I bring special attention to the ongoing process of relational safety. I also believe that self-harmful behaviors always have roots in past experiences of threat and it can be life-changing to discover these connections. I work to help individuals establish goals, explore their experiences, gain self-awareness, develop resources and skills, cultivate self-compassion, and find greater self-empowerment so they can create a more fulfilling and meaningful life for themselves.

I believe that shame - the belief that we're not enough or too much in some way - is often at the root of much of our suffering. I will work with you to help alleviate symptoms (such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, disordered eating, extreme worrying, self-criticism or a lack of connection with others) and the deeper pain underneath those symptoms. I offer a safe, warm, and compassionate space where I can help you to access your own internal resources in order to unburden the pain that parts of you may be carrying.

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 Fairfax or for a Fairfax 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.
