I view being a Psychotherapist as being more than simply a job, I view it as a vocation. I have worked in both residential and outpatient settings. I help individuals with symptoms and behaviors arising from anxiety, depression, psychosis, obsessions & compulsions, traumatic experiences, addictions, Personality Disorders, low self-esteem, and anger. I also help individuals cope with daily problems or stress in order to lead more productive lives. I am licensed to treat Mental Health issues, as well as Chemical Dependency issues, in the states of Nebraska & Iowa. I am currently accepting new patients (for in-office visits only).

I have experience with anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, foster care, adoption, bipolar, personality disorders, parenting, and stress.
Everyone deserves to have their voice heard. In our everyday lives we may not always feel that others listen to what we have to say. This can increase feelings of anxiety and depression and eventually overwhelm us to a point where we don’t see any way out. I want you to know that I am here for you. What you have to say and what you think and feel is important. Not only will I listen to you, but I will guide you through the difficult struggles which come your way. You are not alone.

Having the courage to seek therapy is never easy. One may feel hopeless, vulnerable, frustrated and unable to cope without outside help. While working in an inpatient psychiatric facility, it has allowed me to work extensively with anxiety, depression, bipolar, mood disorders, personality disorders, substance abuse, domestic violence, etc. I work with my clients to identify areas of their life that are causing suffering, collaboratively identifying effective ways to manage and reduce emotional pain. I utilize both warmth and validation with evidence-based behavioral change strategies.

I have experience working with serious mental illness such as bipolar disorder, psychotic disorders and personality disorders.
Welcome to the beginning of a potentially transforming time in your life. The decision to seek therapy is both scary and courageous as it requires a person to be vulnerable with a perfect stranger. Every time I begin to work with a new person, I am always awed by the motivation and fortitude it takes to make changes in one's life. To explore our fears, motivations, dreams, goals and strengths is not necessarily the norm of our society, however, to embark on this journey provides a significantly more fulfilled life.

Beginning therapy and finding a new therapist can feel challenging yet hopeful. It is important to find a therapist with whom you can form a close bond and who begins to understand you. This bond can give way to more deep and meaningful therapeutic work. As an Object Relations psychoanalytical psychotherapist I will use our therapeutic relationship as the primary vehicle for change. Psychoanalytic work helps provide relief from debilitating symptoms as well as addresses the deeper underlying causes of your symptoms. Our work also allows for exploration in understanding unconscious drives that shape your daily life and relationships.

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.
