My clients desire change yet don't always know how to get there. My hope is to walk with you during life's challenges, conflicts in relationships, trauma, addictions, and old deep wounds. I love to see my clients heal and grow in ways they did not think possible. In sessions, clients learn their negative interactional patterns, begin to experience real closeness and intimacy with their significant others. My goal is to help you work through life's messes, discover the beauty of forgiveness, mine the depths of true joy, teach the art of grieving well and to help you discover your most authentic self.

Something isn’t working. Sometimes nothing works. You feel riddled with anxiety, felled by depression, overwhelmed by stress, or stuck in patterns of destructive behavior that leave you feeling hopeless that lasting change will ever take place.

Unresolved childhood trauma, neglect, and attachment disorders can turn into long-lasting mental health challenges well into adulthood. Without proper treatment and support, childhood adversities can lead to feelings of unworthiness, hopelessness, helplessness, mood and personality disorders, relationship issues, and a range of other maladaptive and compulsive addictive behaviors in adulthood. Addressing childhood adversities through effective therapies can empower individuals to overcome their mental health challenges and have a chance of living a healthier and more fulfilling life.

Online in Tennessee & Georgia. You've been in a cycle of toxic relationships that make you feel crazy and not good enough. You're a people pleaser and a perfectionist. You worry about everyone else's feelings but your own. You wonder, "am I the narcissist?" Maybe you've tried to set boundaries with a parent, but still feel misunderstood, criticized, or invalidated. You believe your childhood was difficult but then rationalize that it "wasn't that bad." You won't call it trauma or abuse but then what was it?

For over twenty-five years, I have done therapy with individuals experiencing life stress and/or chemical imbalances. I have successfully treated clients who are experiencing depression, anxiety and panic attacks. For the past five years, I have concentrated primarily on clients who have experienced emotional abuse from having been involved with a person who has Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Such relationships leave others feeling as thought the life has been sucked out of them. I have helped many clients go from feeling weak and depleted to strong and self confident; they regain self esteem and peace of mind.

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.
