I enjoy working with all clients regardless of gender, race, culture, or socio-economic status. However, I am most effective with adult women and teenagers (boys and girls). My work with women is centered around the empowering idea that you are incredibly more capable than you feel or think. My goal is to provide women with a solution-focused approach to stress management, mental wellness, personal, and professional growth. I utilize treatments that are evidence-based, holistic, client-centered, and culturally informed.

Congratulations! Reaching out is the first step to changing you and your loved one's life! I use a comprehensive, therapeutic approach helping family members and individuals struggling with alcohol and substance abuse, sex / love addiction and eating disorders. As an addiction specialist I help families discover how to 'motivate' and then 'stop' the struggling individual to find a path to sobriety. I believe that substance abuse is a result of underlying emotional dysfunctions, and, once addressed, relieves and heals the cycle of addiction.

Are your emotions and moods causing you problems? Perhaps your feelings seem too strong and overwhelming. Or perhaps you lack emotions and you feel empty inside. Maybe you do not know what you are feeling or your emotions confuse you. When you get anxious, bored or stressed do you turn to foods, alcohol, drugs or harmful activities to feel better? Do you lack a sense of meaning or excitement for life? Are you tired of feeling and reacting to the world in the same old ways that just don't seem to be working anymore?

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.
