"I have commanded foreign words to explicate the native in me, all the while obfuscating what was, but was not, could not be, spoken. And what of words? I have spoken in multitudes and platitudes. I have harbored thoughts and feelings with no hope of setting them off to sail in these words. All words but my own. There are, and always will be, two ways to tell my stories.

Whether you are struggling with a life transition, feeling overwhelmed, or finding yourself stuck in unproductive patterns, talking it out with a non-judgmental person can help. My clinical training has focused on many forms of human suffering, however I have particular experience in helping people work through anxiety, depression, and experiences commonly called "psychosis" (such as hearing voices, alternate realities, suspiciousness, and extreme states). Additionally, I have extensive experience working therapeutically with people who are neurodivergent or diagnosed with "high functioning autism".

I specialized in working with adolescents and adults who struggle with comorbidity - such as substance use disorder and PTSD, anxiety, depression, psychosis, borderline personality disorder, etc.
I work very well with adolescents and adults whom struggle to believe that therapy could be beneficial for them. Through my experience, I learned that utilizing psychodynamic theory with the individual during the first several months of therapy aids in building a strong therapeutic relationship. Thus, my initial goal is to help the individual understand how their experiences in life - both positive and negative - contributed to shaping their behaviors, thought patterns, interests, etc. This will help the individual to identify unconscious stressors and improve their emotional response.

Psychosis Therapists

What’s the most effective treatment for psychosis?

The most effective treatment for psychosis is coordinated specialty care. In this model, a team of professionals works with a patient to address all aspects of the underlying disorder. This approach incorporates individual or group therapy, employment and education support, family support and education, medication management (which often involves low doses of antipsychotics), and case management to facilitate problem-solving as needed.

When should people seek treatment for psychosis?

People should seek immediate treatment at the earliest indication of psychosis. Symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, disorganized or blocked speech, and agitated body movements. Early signs that a person may be developing a disorder that will lead to psychosis include suspiciousness of others, memory problems and distractibility, an inability to think clearly, rapid or nonsensical speech, withdrawal from friends or family, aggression toward others, and sensitivity to bright lights or noises.

What if psychosis is left untreated?

Without treatment, psychosis can have significant repercussions, including injuries, job loss, homelessness, financial or legal trouble, ruptured relationships, and suffering for the person and their family. While early treatment for psychosis often yields the best results, there is no point past which it becomes useless to seek treatment. At any point, treatment can make a difference.

How do I get someone else to seek treatment for psychosis?

It’s extremely difficult to watch a loved one suffer from hallucinations, delusions, and other elements of psychosis—sometimes exacerbated by their fears of treatment. Have a conversation with them in a quiet space and maintain a calm, supportive tone. Share your concerns about behaviors you’ve observed, suggest treatment, and explain the potential benefits. Listen carefully to their responses. The person may not be ready after one conversation, but with time, they may come around.
