I have a lifelong interest in collaborating with people wanting to grow toward greater engagement with relationship, optimum expression of life purpose, and balancing aspects of Self. Together, we build a safe space for curiosity about self, beginning where you are, and proceeding at your pace. I see a wide range of people including trauma survivors, artists, and LGBTQ+ people. I have experience working with depression/anxiety; grief; PTSD, dissociation; and life transitions. I don't treat substance abuse. I believe daily pot use stifles growth/change capacity, so I have found that therapy is not very useful until you have quit.

Do you feel weary from your perfectionism tendencies, while digging in your heels and persevering in what feels like just another long day? You have forgotten how to enjoy the small pleasures in life and are going through the motions. When was the last time you were able to pause, while reflecting in the beauty of nature or laugh whole heartedly with a friend? Time passes quickly as you continually show up for others, spend time with loved ones and champion work tasks, with little recollection of investing in your self-care and development, leaving you feeling: unsupported, unfulfilled and often defeated.

Most people will experience emotional and psychological distress at some point in their lives. And, most people will go through it without seeking help, thereby prolonging their suffering unnecessarily. Some people choose to do this because they are unsure about what therapy can provide. Therapy helps by trying to make sense out of our experiences, by trying to figure out why we feel and do the things that we feel and do. By making sense of our experiences, it helps us to understand ourselves, to change and to live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

Mental health needs are overlooked in Primary Care today. Many clients see their PCP not with just chronic medical issues, but also mental illnesses to be addressed. Most PCP's are to busy to ask the next question that will allow the clients to open up regarding their mental concerns. Mental health needs is growing by the minute and the second with increase suicides on the rise and mental breakdowns on the rise. Increase violence is becoming a common way of life in our society related to minimal access to mental health services. Many people are searching for help, however, they do not know how to get there. The struggle is real.

You dream of a calmer and fulfilled journey through your life. One where you can breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the benefits of your hard work. Taking a little extra time in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee on your porch or seizing a special moment of your day. However, you find a contradiction in what your soul desires and in your actual life. You find yourself feeling busy, you barely have time to look up and often feel isolated and alone, as if no one quite understands your inner feelings of: anxiety, depression, sadness, trauma, relationship or self esteem concerns. When will your moment come to feel understood?

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.
