As a seasoned practitioner and a Training Candidate at the C.G. Jung Institute in Colorado, I love working with clients who want to explore and make needed changes in the behavioral patterns that are no longer serving them in their lives and relationships. Together we can create an environment that safely holds the space for deep self exploration of defended wounds that are often manifested as addictions, anxiety, fear, depression and dissociative reactions; while working toward self-acceptance, non-judgement and the transpersonal retrieval of mind, body and soul.

If you have arrived here, likely your habitual tools that once served you are no longer working. Or perhaps they never were, and you can no longer ignore this reality. You may feel lost, hopeless, helpless, or a combination of challenging emotions. I am here to tell you that you will not feel this way forever. Through an attachment-based, trauma-informed lens, I will assist you in addressing the root causes of your suffering. No band-aids here; I believe the only way to live free of trauma, negative self-talk, poor self-esteem, depression, anxiety, or addiction is to face the origin story head-on.

The current global crisis is stressful. For many of us it may be reactivating old layers of unresolved trauma, that shows up as chronic anxiety, dread, helplessness, relationship challenges, shame, or a shutting down to life and love, fueling unhealthy coping strategies. I believe we all have an innate capacity to heal from adversity. I support you to turn towards your symptoms with openness and curiosity so they can become a doorway to greater healing, growth and new possibility. I hope to empower and inspire you to heal and grow from past trauma. "There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in"( L. Cohen)

*I currently have limited openings for new clients who are committed to inner work, healing and growth. Please call my direct number of 505-820-7562, rather than the coded one above.* Therapy is an organic process that gives support and guidance. Our experiences and beliefs about ourselves and the world create emotional holding patterns of behavior. When we face these with compassion for ourselves, we become freer and more peaceful. Self compassion is a key piece of moving into deeper self connection and self acceptance. If this kind of self intimacy interests you, please contact me to begin.

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.
