We are currently accepting new clients at our office. Are you feeling anxious or depressed? Then stress is affecting you. Stress can come from anywhere– from conflicts at home or work to living through a global pandemic. Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression are common responses to the stress of our lives. Anxiety appears as racing thoughts, feeling overwhelmed, worrying about the future, and more. It can contribute to chronic pain and performance issues (athletic, business, etc). Depression can feel like a black hole that swallows the joy in our lives, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, or just a sadness that won’t go away.

You can’t control the challenging factors you are faced with in life but you can be empowered by how you perceive and respond. Difficulties, trials, struggles, pain, and grief are unavoidable even if you perceive to make the "right" choices. Life can be hard sometimes and unfair. Even the daily stressors of work, career, family, responsibilities, life transitions, difficult relationships, and lack of expectations being met can weigh you down. You live life through experiences, and experiences are understood through your perceptions. When you develop the tools to manage your perceptions, you can also manage those experiences.

Therapy can help you find greater strength and more resilience, reduce your pain, and gain a stronger sense of you are and who you want to be.
For most efficient response, please email. You often describe yourself as "fine", but experience a dull, nagging sense you that things could be feeling a little bit better. Perhaps from the outside your life appears well put-together. If you've thought about talking to someone before, but you worry that your problems are too big for a therapist to handle - or too small to be worth talking about - you may just be surprised at how much a therapist really can help.

I specialize in working with people with chronic pain and weight management and I provide spinal cord stimulator and bariatric surgery evaluations.
After many years of seeing clients, I have understood that a therapist's role is to encourage action by fostering one's belief in self, others, and the world; courage; and realistic goals. Through these actions, I've come to believe that clients will eventually free themselves of the handcuffs that affect their mental well-being. My goal is to be a catalyst for change.

Chronic Pain Therapists

How does chronic pain therapy work?

Engaging with a psychotherapist to help treat chronic pain does not mean that one’s pain is all in their head. Therapy for chronic-pain patients has been shown to benefit both the mind and the body, targeting physical symptoms and increasing daily functioning. In other words, for many, addressing their emotional health through therapy affects their physical health. A therapist can help a client challenge unhelpful thoughts about pain and develop new ways to respond to it, such as distraction or calming breathing techniques. Studies have found that therapy can be as effective as surgery for certain cases of chronic pain and many doctors recommend trying psychotherapy in advance of considering invasive surgery.

What are the most effective treatment options for chronic pain?

Stress, anxiety, depression, catastrophizing, ruminating, lack of activity, and social withdrawal all make chronic pain worse. Addressing these issues, research shows, can help people gain control over their pain symptoms. Therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, biofeedback, and mindfulness-based stress reduction, along with greater pain-management education, have been found to help people reduce fear and disability.

Are there new treatments for chronic pain?

Many cases of chronic pain, particularly those involving back pain, remain medically unexplained. But there is evidence that changes in the brain or nervous system are caused by previous physical ailments such as tissue damage; in such cases, the brain may continue to send out pain signals despite the physical cause having healed. To aid patients under these circumstances, a recently developed treatment known as pain reprocessing therapy (PRT) is designed to help the brain “unlearn” this response. A PRT practitioner helps individuals to reduce the “threat value” of their ongoing pain signals until they can reappraise them as less threatening and fear-inducing. They also help an individual to develop new emotional regulation skills.

How long does therapy for chronic pain take?

There is no set timeline for recovery from chronic pain, especially as there may be a range of physical and psychological causes for any individual’s discomfort, but most patients should expect to see a therapist for a number of weeks or months, typically spanning at least 12 sessions. Studies of pain reprocessing therapy found that many individuals’ experience of pain lessened in eight sessions over four weeks.
