I enjoy helping clients with attachment issues, complex trauma, and dissociative disorders. I also have experience working with clients struggling anxiety, depression, SPMI's and grief. I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointment times that can accommodate busy schedules. I strive to establish a therapeutic alliance with my clients based on emotional validation & trust. I hope to meet clients where they are by working with them collaboratively to identify the core issues underlying many daily problems. This collaborative work is critical to developing true clarity and is a first step towards healing.

Do you feel stuck? Have you experienced a significant loss or trauma in your life and are having a hard time moving forward? Does it feel like you can’t get ahead in life or relationships? I can help. I am experienced in working adults. Many clients have experienced complex trauma such as history of multiple abuses, childhood trauma and grief; grief and loss; other traumatic events such as single incident of abuse or accident, traumatic loss, divorce; depression; anxiety; or suicidal thoughts. Many clients want to find ways to get "unstuck" or cope with life's challenges.

Welcome! I have spent more than a decade in trauma work and understand the arduous process to release the debilitating grip past trauma can have on a client’s present-moment experience. I recognize the profound courage it takes to look deeply within. I prepare my clients to find that invisible line between comfort and discomfort to set the foundation for lifechanging results and encourage them to live in their own authentic truth. Trauma healing looks different for everyone and I work side by side with each of my clients to design a path of healing that feels right to them.

What does it mean to "take care of your mental health?" It's easier to tell when you aren't taking care of it: chronic stress, exhaustion, worry, and panic are all signs your mental health is suffering. If untreated, you could start having nightmares, poor health, trouble in your relationships, and difficulty staying on top of work or school. There are many things that can lead to mental health struggles, like a too-busy schedule, a chronic illness or someone else's troubles, a major life transition, or a death of someone close to you. Or, it could seem to come out of the blue, caused by nothing at all.

As the parent of a child/teen that struggles with their wounded selves, you have tried everything. The exhaustive interventions that you have tried are going nowhere fast. Throwing in the towel is all that you have left. Your marriage is more daunting than it is invigorating and you keep hitting a wall with connecting to one another. Depression has you stuck in quicksand and the struggle is consuming you. Anxiety has its grip on you and it is controlling your life. You find yourself asking what more can you do? You feel all alone in your struggles and are having more moments of frustration than joy. Asking for help is hard.

The ability to talk to someone and have a sense that they know just where you're coming from and to know just what you're trying to say even before you can fully say it is a quality that my patients often describe when they tell me why I am effective in my work with them. I believe the challenge is in putting these skills together to help people find a way to be more effective in their lives. That is what the challenge is. It is with humility that i join my patients in meeting that challenge.

Stress and anxiety can be a part of life. However, sometimes a person will find themselves drowning in feelings of loneliness, hopelessness and fear. Sometimes these feelings and thoughts become are so overwhelming that people literally feel held hostage by despair. People become paralyzed with fear unable to make a decision because of self-doubt. People lose the will to face the day stop taking care of themselves. My typical clients range from teenagers to adults with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, anger management issues, ADHD, PTSD, codependency, poor stress management or coping and other various mental health conditions.

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.
