We are hiring Mental Health Professionals! Contact us if interested! Developing personal strength and worth is the core of therapy with me. This happens through learning self-acceptance and no longer feeling shame about our life story. How does this happen? First, we develop a safe and trusting relationship between client and therapist. Then, we work together to process the client's story through narrative, Somatic Experiencing, restorative art work, and other modalities appropriate for the client. I desire my clients to walk away from our session experiencing a deeper sense of meaning and having new tools to continue to heal.

My journey to becoming a counselor started from a young age when I realized I felt things on a deep level... or at least cried more than the other guys! For a long time I struggled with my sensitivity, thinking less of myself for lacking the control to ignore or suppress my feelings. However, over time I found that my sensitivity allowed me to empathize with others on a unique level, and that in owning and sharing my feelings, others felt more comfortable to do the same. As a result, it is my aim to provide individuals a safe space to share their struggles and develop tools to feel confident in their ability to cope with life.

My ideal client is someone that is open to being vulnerable; realizing their worth in this world and that they, too, deserve to be happy. Happiness is individualized and is not a "one-size-fits-all" narrative.

Traditional talk therapy doesn't always give us the results we want, especially when working with trauma. I work best with clients who prefer a direct approach and have been trying to heal from trauma for a prolonged period of time without a lot of results. I found that spirituality is an important part of the trauma healing process. To me, spirituality looks like connecting with nature and the earth and expands beyond the traditional perspectives. Trauma often comes with addictions and I do not take the abstinence-only perspective on addiction and tend to emphasize harm reduction as an alternative.

You feel disconnected from yourself and others. Relaxation seems like a distant fever dream and you’d rather eat glass than spend a minute being still in your body. Reframing negative thoughts, counting to ten, and downloading countless meditation apps haven’t helped your feelings of isolation and distress.

We all have our ups and downs in life and sometimes life can feel really harsh when we least expect it. Thoughts and memories from your past may be intruding in your current life. You may not feel safe leaving the house due to anxiety or debilitating depression. In therapy, you will learn to stop the panic, stop the racing thoughts, feel less sad and process the parts of your past that continue to effect you today. I work collaboratively with individuals, drawing on techniques, like EMDR, to assist you in moving beyond the symptoms of your struggles to uncover the underlying causes of “stuckness” or suffering.

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.
