Additionally, I have a special interest in working with families facing an Alzheimer's/dementia diagnosis, as well as issues of stage fright or test anxiety with creatives, performers, and students.
NOTE: Currently full, but spots do open up over time. Feel free to inquire. Although my approach to counseling draws from a variety of models and approaches (including EMDR, interpersonal neurobiology, polyvagal and attachment theories), all are rooted in the fundamental principles of non-judgmental acceptance, authenticity, and experience. Beyond the exploration of old patterns of beliefs and behaviors, my focus is on helping clients find solutions. My ultimate goal as a therapist is to help my clients develop knowledge and tools that will facilitate sustained growth long after therapy has ended.

Many life changes, emotions, & challenges come with a diagnosis. Given that it often takes 2 years to get a diagnosis, you've likely been struggling with this for awhile. That's true if it's your diagnosis or the diagnosis of someone you love. I specialize in working with people with chronic illness (cancer, autoimmune illnesses, etc.), caregivers (for children, spouses, elderly parents), older adults, & those with cognitive challenges (dementia, etc.). I’ve worked with people who are dying & their grieving loved ones. I provide online therapy in California, Texas, & Mississippi. Please see below for insurances I take by state.

Often we face many challenges in our lives and need an outlet to figure out the road we will take on this next journey. Dealing with depression and anxiety can add to our level of stress.

Have you endured a painful or sudden loss? Are you experiencing tremendous difficulty adjusting to death, illness, or other significant life transition? Do you feel scared- or even convinced- that things will never improve? Have loved ones tried to reach out, but you don't feel like they understand your situation? There's a good chance that you are tired of "being strong" or tired of feeling alone. Likewise, there's a good chance that you need some emotional support during this trying time.

Being a responsible adult and managing all the demands of your day to day life can take a toll on your energy and mood. Many of us, even those who “should be OK, and have it all” get by with a bare minimum of reserve and just function or survive. I want to help you get to “thrive”, to free up that energy that is locked in the past, in the stories we tell ourselves that are not updated with our strengths and growth, and our difficulties and traumas. This will allow you be more present in the day to day and have a fuller, more joyful life.

Are you struggling to make a decision? Have you lost touch with who you thought you were? Do you seem to find yourself in the same situation over and over? Maybe you're dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, or grief. You might just need someone to talk to. If any of this sounds familiar, I'd love to speak with you. I'm interested in working with any and all adults and teenagers (15+). I have a special interest in working with young adults, musicians and other artists, people who are feeling directionless, and those trying to reconcile their beliefs about the "big questions" that go along with the experience of being human.

Life is inevitably composed of episodes of change. From new experiences and life events to trauma and loss, transitions in life challenge ones' emotional balance. When first entering therapy I believe that it is natural to be unable to identify all of these feelings. Often you may only know that “something is off”. My goal is to sit with you through uncertainty and walk with you through the process of self-exploration and healing.

Adolescence is a time filled with continuous change that can bring unique challenges to each individual, ultimately making this a difficult time for not only teens but families too. Adolescence marks the transition from childhood to adulthood and includes those ages 13-25. It is an intensely important developmental stage in which teens develop a sense of self, independence, boundaries, social connections, communication and emotional regulation skills. Accomplishing these tasks is no easy feat and often conflict arises. This is where I can help!

Alzheimer's Therapists

What are the first-line treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease?

The first-line treatment for Alzheimer’s disease is often medication, which may be prescribed based on the severity of the disease. These include cholinesterase inhibitors, memantine, or a combination of the two. Behavioral treatments can help people cope with emotional distress, such as anxiety or anger, and explore lifestyle changes related to housing, caregiving, sleep, and finances.

When to seek treatment for Alzheimer’s?

It’s best to seek treatment at the first signs of dementia. Early warning signs of Alzheimer’s include memory problems, such as forgetting appointments or directions, as well as trouble concentrating, paying attention, retrieving words, and carrying out daily household tasks. An early diagnosis can help people slow the progression of the disease with treatment and plan for the future in terms of housing, support, finances, and legality.

Are there specific medications to treat Alzheimer’s?

Medications approved by the FDA to manage symptoms of Alzheimer’s include galantamine, rivastigmine, and donepezil for mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, and memantine, donepezil, and the rivastigmine patch for moderate to severe Alzheimer’s. These drugs can help manage the disease, but no drug currently cures the disease. Medications recently approved by the FDA, such aducanumab and lecanemab may slow the disease course, but aspects of their effectiveness are still debated.

Are there natural treatments for Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s disease cannot be cured via natural remedies (nor via medication), but some lifestyle habits can help forestall it or slow its progression. Lifestyle activities that can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease include regular exercise, a healthy, well-rounded diet, stimulating cognitive activity, time spent socializing, adequate sleep, and stress management as needed.
