I have a passion for working with our veterans, first responders, LGBTQAI+, and those struggling with the loss of a loved one, or struggling with a loved one going through chronic medical issues including alzheimer's and dementia.
Feel disconnected from others or dissatisfied with life? Feel like the promises that were made have not been kept? Many people feel disconnected right now and are struggling with finding a healthy balance to find connection again. I can help you with those daily struggles as well as facing painful issues from the past. My co-therapist is a 125lb therapy dog named Anya; her job is to help in whatever way works best for you.

Four words represent the heart of my counseling focus while working with adults and couples for over 25 years. These words are: Hurts, Habits, Home and Heaven. 1) HURTS are past or recent wounds that a person needs help and healing from; 2) HABITS are repetitive and unwanted emotions, thoughts and activities that control a person; 3) HOME represents our most important relationships between partners, spouses and friends, but where confusion, conflict and disconnection can occur; and 4) HEAVEN represents the importance of one's faith in God for finding love, direction, and assurance that we matter in this life and beyond.

Dementia related conditions affect over 6 million people in the US and that number is projected to be 13 million by 2050. The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease (AD), affecting more than 30 million people around the globe. An Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis seemed hopeless and devastating in the past, but the innovative treatment protocol developed by Dr. Dale Bredesen now offers legitimate hope to effectively treat and prevent dementia. Our goal is to prevent or reverse early cognitive decline in those at risk for developing dementia. Thankfully, Dr. Bredesen’s protocol is extremely effective at doing that.

Are events in your life leaving you feeling lost or on shaky ground? Do you feel stuck as a result of things happening outside of your control? So often this leads folks to feel overwhelmed and at a loss of hope. Sound familiar? You’re not alone. I strive to create a non-judgmental space where you can discuss experiences and process emotions with the central goal of reaching a new level of insight. With new insight comes new solutions. I respect the experience of my clients and understand the extent to which trauma can complicate how a person sees themselves and their place within the world.

Alzheimer's Therapists

What are the first-line treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease?

The first-line treatment for Alzheimer’s disease is often medication, which may be prescribed based on the severity of the disease. These include cholinesterase inhibitors, memantine, or a combination of the two. Behavioral treatments can help people cope with emotional distress, such as anxiety or anger, and explore lifestyle changes related to housing, caregiving, sleep, and finances.

When to seek treatment for Alzheimer’s?

It’s best to seek treatment at the first signs of dementia. Early warning signs of Alzheimer’s include memory problems, such as forgetting appointments or directions, as well as trouble concentrating, paying attention, retrieving words, and carrying out daily household tasks. An early diagnosis can help people slow the progression of the disease with treatment and plan for the future in terms of housing, support, finances, and legality.

Are there specific medications to treat Alzheimer’s?

Medications approved by the FDA to manage symptoms of Alzheimer’s include galantamine, rivastigmine, and donepezil for mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, and memantine, donepezil, and the rivastigmine patch for moderate to severe Alzheimer’s. These drugs can help manage the disease, but no drug currently cures the disease. Medications recently approved by the FDA, such aducanumab and lecanemab may slow the disease course, but aspects of their effectiveness are still debated.

Are there natural treatments for Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s disease cannot be cured via natural remedies (nor via medication), but some lifestyle habits can help forestall it or slow its progression. Lifestyle activities that can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease include regular exercise, a healthy, well-rounded diet, stimulating cognitive activity, time spent socializing, adequate sleep, and stress management as needed.
