I treat a wide variety of clinical disorders such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and personality disorders. However, I specialize in the treatment of addiction to drugs, alcohol, and sexually compulsive behaviors better known as “sex addiction.” The reason I don’t prefer that term is because it oversimplifies both the subjective experience and the symptoms. For example, overuse of pornography, or countless hours spent browsing single’s ads online doesn’t necessarily involve sex, but it can be compulsive.

I have been trained in EMDR and working with personality disorders and embrace people during all stages of their lives.
In this ever-changing and evolving world, we are all feeling some confusion, perhaps isolation, and a little anxiety in our lives. I see this in my clients’ lives and in my own. Therefore, I am dedicated to working with adults and teens in individual and couples counseling because I can empathize and help people learn new tools to live a healthier, more joyous life. Trauma, relationships, and even family can sometimes negatively affect us. I strive to empower people to become unstuck and move forward with more positivity and strategies to make great changes for themselves.

I have experience working with individuals who live with persistent mental health disorders including but not limited to Mood Disorders, Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorders, Personality Disorders, as well as those experiencing grief, loss, and substance abuse.
Each individual experiences difficulties in their lifetime; however, everyone responds to their challenges depending upon their own sense of self, as well as, the basic units of support in which the individual does or does not have in their life. As someone who practices what I preach, I can say therapy works! - but only if you are able to accept the mindset that we grow together, not apart. I find mental health to be just as, if not more important as physical health. Having support in our lives is ultimately what keeps us stable and connected. While it will not erase difficulties we face, therapy can be used as a significant tool

Personality Disorders Therapists

What are the common treatment options for personality disorders?

Personality disorders are typically treated with psychotherapy, sometimes in conjunction with medication. Therapy can help people with personality disorders develop skills to tolerate difficult emotions, navigate interpersonal relationships, and solidify their sense of self. Medications can treat symptoms that co-occur with the disorder, such as depression, anger, aggression, and impulsivity.

When to seek treatment for personality disorders?

Even though treatment for personality disorders can be an uphill battle, it’s best to seek help if you suspect that you or a loved one is struggling with one, because personality disorders can create substantial problems in life. Symptoms depend on the specific disorder, but overall signs of personality disorders include consistent difficulty maintaining close relationships, dramatic variations in self-esteem, and an unstable sense of identity.

How long does therapy take for personality disorders?

The timeline for treating personality disorders isn’t as clear-cut as it is for other disorders. Change can be difficult, taking from around one year to five, 10, or more. The key is finding a therapist who has extensive experience treating the relevant disorder. For example, a psychologist who specializes in narcissistic personality disorder has specific communication strategies that allow them to sustain the relationship and be more effective with narcissistic patients.

Can therapy help people with personality disorders?

Research suggests that for those who are motivated to address concerns or interpersonal conflict related to a personality disorder, therapy is far more effective than no treatment, and that most people in therapy see improvements. However, since personality disorders involve entrenched elements of identity, they are less responsive to treatment than are other mental health conditions. Finding an expert who has extensive experience working with a given personality disorder is one factor that increases the likelihood of successful treatment.
