I specialize in adult psychosis and childhood issues, ranging from ADHD, trauma, anxiety, depressions, and ODD.
Accepting New Clients. When "Life" happens, it happens fast and sometimes in a way that throws what we had planned for ourselves off course. But, just because we get off track, that does not mean we are lost forever. Life was made to have highs and lows, but successfully navigating through those highs and lows will be our greatest accomplishment. My greatest passion is working with those that are having difficulty navigating these very highs and lows of life. We are not always able to change our physical environment or the "Life" things that happen, BUT we can change the way we look at these events. And THAT is why I am here.

I also provide a compassionate, non-judgmental safe place for adults with unresolved trauma, past or present, to collaboratively work through issues and learn to process thoughts in healthier more adaptive ways, pursue goals and thrive rather than just survive.

Psychosis Therapists

What’s the most effective treatment for psychosis?

The most effective treatment for psychosis is coordinated specialty care. In this model, a team of professionals works with a patient to address all aspects of the underlying disorder. This approach incorporates individual or group therapy, employment and education support, family support and education, medication management (which often involves low doses of antipsychotics), and case management to facilitate problem-solving as needed.

When should people seek treatment for psychosis?

People should seek immediate treatment at the earliest indication of psychosis. Symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, disorganized or blocked speech, and agitated body movements. Early signs that a person may be developing a disorder that will lead to psychosis include suspiciousness of others, memory problems and distractibility, an inability to think clearly, rapid or nonsensical speech, withdrawal from friends or family, aggression toward others, and sensitivity to bright lights or noises.

What if psychosis is left untreated?

Without treatment, psychosis can have significant repercussions, including injuries, job loss, homelessness, financial or legal trouble, ruptured relationships, and suffering for the person and their family. While early treatment for psychosis often yields the best results, there is no point past which it becomes useless to seek treatment. At any point, treatment can make a difference.

How do I get someone else to seek treatment for psychosis?

It’s extremely difficult to watch a loved one suffer from hallucinations, delusions, and other elements of psychosis—sometimes exacerbated by their fears of treatment. Have a conversation with them in a quiet space and maintain a calm, supportive tone. Share your concerns about behaviors you’ve observed, suggest treatment, and explain the potential benefits. Listen carefully to their responses. The person may not be ready after one conversation, but with time, they may come around.
