There is a phrase that says the longest distance we will travel is the 18 inches from your head to your heart. Current research supports the use of body based methods. I am a Brene Brene Brown Daring Way Facilitator. I also use a combination of music therapy, psychodrama, advanced integrative therapy, and Brainspotting. Brainspotting can be used to process traumatic events, remove creative blocks in artists, and improve sports performance. Brainspotting is also very helpful in stopping unwanted behaviors such as smoking, over eating, phobias, and addiction.

I want to thank you for considering to see me for counseling. Seeking professional help is not always an easy decision. I view counseling as a team process whereby the counselor and the client work together to develop a safe, trustworthy, nonjudgmental environment. This environment allows the client to freely explore life’s situation, confront any challenges and develop ways to better manage life.

**PLEASE CHECK BACK. I AM CURRENTLY FULL AND CANNOT ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. THANK YOU.**When an atmosphere of trust and collaboration is created, healing can begin. My clients have shared with me that I am amicable and non-judgmental, warm hearted with a sense of humor and play. Within this space, clients who are learning to live with problems like a change in life, addiction or trauma can explore their life experiences, learn to use their current strengths and add new skills to move towards their goal. It takes time and patience, honesty and courage, plus support to look at one's self and stick with new thoughts and behaviors.

Despite your best efforts lack of change is compelling you to courageously consider another approach. Trauma or PTSD may haunt you with painful memories, nightmares, anxiety, sleep problems, depression, grief, or relationship problems. You may be unsure what you experienced is considered traumatic yet it continues to interrupt your life. I’ve been honored to help many clients reconnect with their authentic selves so they can lead a fulfilling life, including the unique challenges of working in frontline, mental health, and emergency services. If you feel ready enough to begin healing, you are in the right place.

I work with children, adolescents, adults, and couples, addressing a variety of challenges, including anxiety, depression, family issues, relationships, self-esteem, anger management, ADHD, personality disorder, behavioral challenges, etc. I have 16 years of experience providing intensive outpatient counseling to individuals and groups. I strongly believe that counseling is a partnership between the therapist and the client, designed to arrive at the needed objectives and goals. Whereas the therapist has skills and training, the client is always the expert on themselves and their families. Only through working together with regard for the dignity and worth of each individual can challenges be alleviated and strengths enhanced.

Depression, grief, anxiety can all happen for a wide variety of reasons, and there's no telling what might set any individual person down an emotionally unhealthy path. The important thing is to understand that there are a lot of people dealing with these issues and that it's okay to reach out for help. And when you do reach out, Michael Sanders LPC, NCC, will be here to take your hand and guide you. Psychotherapy is a collaboration between Therapist and client. With that in mind, my goal is to provide a comfortable, confidential atmosphere in which to work.

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.
