I especially enjoy working with young professionals, adults experiencing transition, caregivers, grief/loss, rural/small community concerns, persons with disabilities and seniors/older adults.
We all go through difficult times when we wish our lives were different. I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to create a new life at any age. Together, we can determine how you would like your life to change and the steps needed to make it happen. Clients have said I am warm and nonjudgmental in my approach, so they feel comfortable sharing their struggles. I understand that everyone brings experiences that shape how they view the world. My goal is to help you understand how these experiences have influenced you and help you start living the life you want.

You might wonder if hypnotherapy is available in the midst of a pandemic - when all the therapists have switched to telehealth platforms. Yes, it is! We simply must plan carefully, so that the process remains safe and comfortable. While everyone's reaction to hypnosis is unique and personal - it has a potential of effecting powerful change for you. You can begin to face what you've been avoiding - and do so with more confidence. I strive to make your sessions productive, so that you make the progress you want. It's a big decision to start therapy - so don't hesitate to ask questions up front.

This may cause many overwhelming feelings of denial, anger or sadness. These are all normal feelings when dealing with life, however if you find yourself having difficulty overcoming these feelings it might be helpful to seek help.

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.
