In my work, I aspire to create an atmosphere of safety, respect and trust, a space where judgement is suspended and we can freely explore and understand your needs, motivations and goals. Therapy could be used in many ways. You could choose to focus on particular symptoms, or develop strategies for certain situations. You may also use therapeutic space as a kind of playground where you can let yourself go, experience your inner reality and reflect on what happened to achieve greater self-awareness. My goal is to meet you where you are.

I believe that mental health is the ability to respond to setbacks and disappointments - that is, life events - with flexibility and resilience. Unfortunately, childhood misattunements with caregivers, traumas, and neglect shape responses that become fixed patterns throughout life. With therapeutic intervention, positive attachment relationships can be forged, and old memories can lead to new insights, which can inspire more adaptive reactions.

I feel that I am all of these things and am fully committed to each and every client I see. Our work together is a partnership in which we explore the things that are holding you back and keeping you from enjoying your life. Whether you are suffering from depression or trying to break unhealthy relationship patterns, I will work with you to improve your life and unravel difficult patterns.

I aim to help patients discover those things about themselves, their partner or relationship, enabling them to address their issue, moving to the next phase more satisfyingly. I do not bring any prior ideas or thoughts about the best outcome, but let my patient(s) guide the treatment. Working with someone means being available to the sort of dialogue that will be helpful. Some want to discuss a specific issue; with others, a larger pattern is revealed through our interactions. My adapting to the relationship, with the client not having to fit my style, is a particular strength of mine.

I work with people who are stuck at certain crossroads in their life. Typically, the external problems seem to solve themselves once therapy reaches a certain point. This applies to work, relationships, life goals, and creative pursuits. My job is to help you transform mental or physical pain into something that is bearable and makes life worth living.

In my experience, difficult emotions, such as sadness and anger, are often replaced with expectations. They can come from family, partners, jobs and social media, and can paint a particular picture that can alienate the wide range of emotions a human may feel. These expectations often leave us feeling lost and alone. In order to develop genuine, creative relationships with others and ourselves, we must find a way to safely experience all of our emotions. If you feel you have hit a wall encountering painful depression and anxiety, and feel tied up in repetitive conflicts, you may need help examining the range of your emotions.

Therapy is about listening in-depth - to stories of our past and present, to our emotions, our affects, and our ways of relating. I create a safe space to listen carefully and empathically to help you understand how you have developed into who you are, and what gets in the way in the here and now. There are many ways to do this work. I believe the most important place to start in any modality is by establishing a solid therapeutic alliance. This relationship becomes a vehicle for exploring other ways of relating. I have a particular interest in childhood trauma, attachment, depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties.

I have been in full time private practice since 1992. I have specialized training in trauma, and addiction treatment. As the therapeutic action, healing for the patient, resides in the relationship between therapist and patient, this therapeutic relationship and how it unfolds is a primary focus. I use an eclectic approach including aspects of various relational theories including interpersonal, self-psychology, inter subjective, and object relations.

We are all doing the best we can. But sometimes we realize that ways that we have previously used to cope with pain are no longer serving us. I work with people of all backgrounds who are in the process of learning to not judge themselves for being in pain, and in finding that freedom they can focus on what they need to function as their authentic selves.

As your therapist, I will treat you with respect and empathy. I am active, supportive and nonjudgmental. People experience me as warm, easy to talk to, and responsive with a good sense of humor. I treat individuals and couples especially those seeking help with overcoming childhood trauma, ACOA, depression, anxiety, low elf esteem, problems related to aging and LGBTQ issues. I enjoy being part of a relationship in which there is growth and healing. I have grown a lot both as patient and therapist. I have also taught at several institutes and offer supervision in relational psychodynamic psychotherapy.

I am a psychodynamic clinician working with adults and older adolescents. If you encounter problems in relationships, work, or other areas of your life, I can provide an empathic, experienced perspective to help you more fully understand the current issues, and to see if there are patterns outside of your awareness that are contributing to your difficulties. I address deeper causes of anxiety and depression, that are usually related to personal history. I see the aim of treatment as increased self-understanding and change.

We all seek happiness and want to rid ourselves of suffering so that we can enjoy our lives. Yet this seemingly simple goal is often the hardest one to reach. I strive to help people identify those things in the present and in their past that keep them from reaching their goals, and to creatively change patterns of feeling and thinking that get in the way. I have a special interest in working with non-conformist people in creative professions.

I provide an opportunity for people to freely express their feelings and thoughts to achieve the changes they desire. I work interactively with clients so they may develop their strengths and achieve their goals. Assisting individuals in becoming at ease with their feelings, however difficult they may be, is an important aspect of the work I do. Feelings can become useful tools for living rather than disturbing impediments. The ubiquitous problems of uncomfortable feelings, harmful behaviors, and the challenges of relationships, careers and parenting are common areas of focus.

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.
