Let me guess, you've been in therapy for years and nothing has helped much? You are not alone. Mental health treatment has failed clients who suffer from complex developmental trauma. This is the trauma that happened as a child and there was no escaping the day to day nightmare of not being kept safe. These clients do not benefit from traditional cognitive-behavioral treatment approaches and talk therapy. They likely have high levels of dissociation and a chronic sense of disconnection from themself and others. They have had to turn on themselves in order to survive the unimaginable. It is time to return home to yourself.

Many people come to my office saying: "Nothing ever changes in my life"; "I'm not good enough"; "I work so hard! Where is my success?"; "Why can't I get along with my partner?"; and, "I feel so alone." In each of these settings, I use a fun-loving, real and powerful approach - using evidence-based therapies and effective interpersonal skills - to validate, accept and support my clients in achieving their goals. I do this by teaching them skills to enjoy their life and relationships, and regulate intense physical, spiritual, mental, and/or emotional thoughts and behaviors.

One of the most important things we need in our own lives is balance. This is often difficult to achieve with life's constant demands on our time and energy. Without balance, life becomes wearisome and at times, unmanageable. We begin to wonder if there is meaning in our lives or even if it's "worth the trouble." In the effort to find relief or comfort, we may find ourselves drawn to self-defeating and even destructive behaviors that offer immediate yet temporary relief. There are other options, a different perspective may help. I offer just this to my clients.

Facing these issues and dealing with life can be difficult at times. I have worked for more than 26 years as an LCSW, helping individuals and families to manage these issues. I found that a direct approach is often best, using evidence based interventions to overcome and excel.

Offering telehealth in States of California, Nevada, and Utah. Trauma can take its toll; it can even feel unspeakable. If you have survived something that has caused you pain, you deserve to heal and release what has been trapped inside of you, without fear of judgment. There is no "right" or "wrong" way to recover; everyone is unique. All of the "marks" of trauma you notice in yourself hold wisdom to offer, in terms of understanding how you managed to stay alive and survive this whole time. It’s not about looking for “what’s wrong” with you; it’s about understanding what’s happened to you and taking your power back.

As a holistic psychotherapist, I maintain a "mind-body-environment" perspective to understand how mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health are interconnected and interrelated to our relationships with others, the environment (nature-culture) and ourselves. I recognize that when those elements are imbalanced, it creates symptoms that can lead to suffering. Anxiety and depression, among other mind-body symptoms, are both cause and effect of this imbalance. They are also the cause of feeling stagnant in life, another root of suffering. Therefore, I hope to work with my patients to create balance and find flow in their life.

A good therapeutic relationship holds a high level of confidence, allowing people to share all sides of themselves; their hopes and fears, wants and needs, dreams and doubts, their strengths and vulnerabilities. Good therapy provides awareness and new perspectives, helping people to place less focus on where they are and more importance on the direction they are moving. My passion as a therapist, is to provide a space for individuals, couples and families to learn, heal and grow on their unique journeys towards transformation and personal freedom.

My work is primarily centered around understanding the client's story and understanding where there has been loss that has gone unresolved. I primarily work from an attachment based perspective, which means I look at the client's relationships and understand how that affects their day to day life. I also highly emphasize the importance of being patient and taking time to work through the trauma that one has endured, whether it is perceived as big or small.

Psychotherapy is a way to learn more about ourselves, find options for change, and develop skills for managing difficult situations and emotions. While the "story" of pain is important, I offer clients the opportunity to better understand the roots of distress, ways in which bodies hold emotional pain, and clear options for enhancing natural resilience. For over a decade, I have helped clients manage anxiety and depression and recover from addiction and trauma. I work with LGBT clients around trauma and discrimination. With training in EMDR, Gestalt Therapy, and CBT, I offer a variety of therapies based on individual need.

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.
