The word “support” might call to mind images of braces, splints, tracks, or advice— all things that try to force a certain form. What I mean by “support” looks less like applied pressure and more like a gentle holding up so that another human soul may unfurl in their own time and take whatever shape would be in alignment with their natural way. Support means to protect, attend to, witness, and reflect back the worth in every process— and when appropriate, to collaborate and name their experience of psychic expansion through words or images.

Anxiety is exhausting. It traps us in our own thoughts and isolates us from loved ones and activities we once enjoyed. Depression can weigh us down and make us forget our strengths. Trauma reduces life to a few painful memories, crowds out positive moments, and replaces them with anxiety and grief. I specialize in helping clients reclaim their lives from repetitive worries, rumination, and intrusive memories. I help them recover their identities through a range of therapies, including EMDR and DBT.

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.
