Many people with eating disorders have a history of traumatic experiences, but I also believe that the eating disorder is a traumatic experience itself. When we treat eating disorders, we are treating trauma. People with eating disorders are often very accomplished because they are so hard-working and caring, but I always find myself wondering, what more could their life hold for them in recovery? How much more could they enjoy their accomplishments and their lives? In addition to my family/individual work with eating disorders, we offer an intensive outpatient program for trauma, promoting safety and support form trauma therapy.

We often face challenges because we retain habitual patterns of relating to people and reacting to events. Our early experiences set expectations that can limit our abilities to respond to stressful events and to notice new opportunities. With counseling, we can revise unhelpful patterns and even repair old wounds they mask and reflect. Then we can feel freer to make healthier choices for ourselves and recover more easily from losses and setbacks we experience. I work with adults and teens (sexual/gender and racial/ethnic minorities, students, social justice activists). Anti-oppression education and training inform my work.

Complicated launchings of teenagers and young adults are my specialty. I work with families to identify risk factors, such as ADHD, learning difficulties, anxiety and depression, in their young person that can interfere with successful launching either through college or the work force. With improved self-awareness and self-management skills, these young adults are more able to make their way in the world. Parents are part of the treatment team as the young adult can't do it without you. Identifying launching goals and developing the skills to achieve those goals are critical to the process.

I believe that it is only within a relationship of trust that one's fondest dreams, wildest wishes and most paralyzing fears and anxieties can be recognized and productively explored. Such exploration is often the springboard for gaining awareness of aspects of one's self, one's way of being in the world, and one's patterns of relating to others that may be quite different from their conscious experience. I believe that the "symptoms" people experience are often a call to understanding and meaning, rather than pathology.

Do you wish you could communicate better when conflicts arise? Are you feeling like stubbornness and unwillingness to compromise are causing feelings of resentment toward your marriage or partner? Does anger--saying and doing awful things you don't mean--sometimes leave you feeling guilty and confused? Do you worry the love you once had may be impossible to regain? If so, the good news is many couples enter therapy with these same concerns and goals. This is where the work and fun can begin as you learn together-or in some cases individually-how to communicate without arguing and how to trust again.

As an adult there comes a time when emotions can defy logic and we exceed our ability to reason through and remedy how we are feeling on our own. Similarly, there are times when even the most supportive parent can reach an impasse and need additional support for their child; especially when children are engaging in difficult, overwhelming and even triggering behaviors.

The thing you want most is to go back to how things were before the trauma but you can’t seem to rewind the clock. Unfortunately, this desire to time travel and change the past or control the future keeps us even more stuck in trauma and PTSD because it gets in the way of confronting these demons.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in River Oaks, Houston, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
