About

NEW: Creative writing group for DID/OSDD starting 9/26/22! Individuals who are experiencing posttraumatic stress, dissociation, plurality/multiplicity, depression, relational problems, anxiety, thoughts of suicide or self-harm, and life transitions are my kind of folks. If you are someone who continues to have a hard time with painful past events interrupting your life and holding you back, I believe we could be a good fit in moving toward your increased wellness together. Also offering clinical supervision.
Dissociative disorders is a broad category of experiences related to long-term effects of trauma on daily life. "Trauma" is a general term that includes any past painful or distressing event that continues to have an impairing impact on your life. We can meet for ongoing therapy or for a diagnostic assessment-only for dissociative/trauma disorders.
My view of therapy comes from many factors, experiences, education, and training that have shaped me in ways I could never measure, with credit to many people, musicians, and authors for how I came to the present place in my journey and in therapy. It would be a privilege to be a guest in your story of people who supported you along the way!
