*I am currently full*My therapy focuses on helping adults heal from childhood trauma, learning new ways to think and live in the world, and identify a better understanding of oneself and the relationships with those around them. I enjoy working with adults who have persevered in life and who have the courage to want something better for themselves. Many people in childhood are left to navigate the world alone. The work I do, as a therapist, allows me to walk beside you, in the here and now, and help you navigate through the new and old territory in your life. I am a trauma informed therapist with an attachment and relational focus.

The focus of my practice is individual (young children, adolescents and adults) and family therapy. I genuinely love working with children, adolescents and families who are struggling with the tasks required to get through a day to those who have "tried everything" and feel lost. Or, individuals and families who are facing a crisis or transition and do not know how to navigate their way, much less help their children. I work together with my clients to identify barriers and the path forward so they can function effectively in their day to day and feel successful in what they do and how they engage.

We create an intimate space where both partners can share their experience and feelings in a way that fosters understanding and compassion. Couples need a sense of shared meaning to make sense of and move through difficult or painful circumstances as lovers. We believe couples can reignite a deep sense of connection if they can get in touch with their fears, needs, desires, wounds and share these vulnerable parts of themselves with their loved one.

What do you do when you find yourself struggling with problems? Do you let those issues, such as, relationships, weight, substance abuse, behaviors, emotions, thoughts, energy or finance victimize you? If this problem doesn't make you feel happy and yet there is a part of you that fears overcoming the problem, I believe there might be some healing work we can do together. I can help you access your subconscious mind and help you achieve this goal of conscious freedom.

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.
