Psychotherapy is very rewarding and challenging work. Anyone seeking to make themselves healthier needs to know that and be open to change. Despite how difficult it is to work through the issues that disrupt our lives, the reward is learning that life is a process worth living and improving on a continuous basis. I treat people with trauma issues, depression, anxiety, PTSD, career moves, family issues, OCD, addictive behaviors, relationship problems and interpersonal unhappiness often beginning with providing psycho-educational information such as personal boundaries, basic human rights, safety, and coping and advocacy skills.

In this I am highly driven to assist an individual in advocating for themselves and identifying their positive qualities.

I like to start by building trust and finding out what goals you want to set for yourself. A safe, encouraging atmosphere with no authoritarian or shaming attitudes is important. Humor is useful with couples, families or teens. Role-plays are a fun way to practice new relationship skills.

Hi there. Thanks for stopping to read my blurb. My name is Nikki and I have worked in the Community Mental Health field for over 20 years. I have had the pleasure of working with many types of people in various stages of need- from case management to Crisis Intervention and support. I feel honored that people have let me into their lives and be witness to such vulnerable parts. I'm invested in working with people and meeting them where they are at. I believe that people can do incredible things and that at times we all need some support, guidance and someone to talk and process with- I'd love the chance to be that person.

Over the years I have worked with so many people who come to the work unhappy with some part of their lives, looking for an avenue to a better life, and not entirely sure how to get there. Maybe you are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, trauma, or an addiction. The inspiration I derive from this work comes from the endless wonder found discovering latent possibilities that might not be apparent at first but, with exploration, turn into paths of personal growth and fulfillment. I am always surprised by the unexpected gems found on the path.

*Full at this time, please check back!* Therapy provides an opportunity to experientially gain understanding about why we feel, act, and think in unique ways based on our complex life histories. The therapeutic relationship is a key element in changing life and relationship patterns, identifying unseen connections, and developing personal insight. Common issues that improve with treatment include relationship problems between intimate partners, family members, parents and children; unhealthy or distressing life patterns; depression; anxiety; impact of trauma or abuse; use of substances; and issues related to chronic illness/pain.

Your days seem to blend together, grasped tightly in the hands of pressures and to-dos. Most of your energy is spent trying to avoid mistakes or “bad” situations, but this exhausts you. It’s possible that you even spend a lot of time worrying about others, people-pleasing, running yourself ragged trying to keep your head afloat in the water you hardly recognize as your life. As you try to sleep your brain replays everything you “should” have done differently, things you have to do tomorrow, and whether or not everything you’re doing is even enough. It feels sometimes like you don’t even have control over your own mind.

Dr. Gregory Wilson offers affordable counseling for individuals, families, couples, and children. He has thirty years' experience, including working with codependency, anxiety and depression, and intimacy and communication issues. The focus is based on this question,” What needs to change to get you going where you want to go?, and what is gong on that the change has yet to happen? “The more the drive toward life is thwarted, the stronger is the drive toward destruction; the more life is realized, the less is the strength of destructiveness. Destructiveness is the outcome of unlived life.”

My ideal client would be someone who wants to grow, is willing to touch his or her own pain and at his/her own pace is willing to change. We all come with our own “story”. I do believe that through personal growth we can change it - understanding that it is only a story. We are the main actor and editor of ourself and this story that is being called ”my life”. Through therapy we can learn how to take ownership and responsibility and replace it with a more satisfying and successful version of ourselves

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.
