Embracing All of You:

Navigating Dissociative Identity Disorder

It was a long hard journey to figure out what was really going on – that YOU are really a WE. To understand that the sudden mood shifts, the ideas that seemed to come out of nowhere, the lapses in memory . . . they’re not just one-offs or things that can be dismissed as no big deal.

So what are you supposed to do now??

What does the future look like, and how can this complex, multifaceted version of YOU . . .all of you . . . find some peace, wholeness, and hope?

This isn’t your first rodeo.

You’ve probably been to therapy before, possibly for years. You worked on managing your bipolar, your borderline personality, your PTSD, and maybe even schizophrenia. But those diagnoses weren’t accurate – or at least, they didn’t tell the whole story.

But now you know . . . so NOW things can be different.

What you need is a therapist who really knows DID. Not just a kind therapist who means well and is willing to help. But a therapist who may know more about DID than you do at this point. You bring direct experience that I will never have; I bring extensive knowledge and experience working with others with DID. Together, we’ll develop the insights and strategies that you need to finally start to feel better.

I’ve specialized in DID because I know that you need someone who really gets it.

I’m here to help you learn a new way of relating to your inner world. You’re ready to understand and empathize with each of your parts. You CAN gain the confidence you need, as an adult, to take care of all the parts that emerged to protect you during childhood.
You can build bridges of communication where there used to be walls dividing your awareness of one another’s actions and life experiences.

So . . .how do we do this??

Towards a Harmonious Self

My therapy sessions concentrate on fostering a stable and cohesive sense of self-as-multiple. My approach is informed by Internal Family Systems (IFS) and mindfulness-based therapies, tailored to meet the distinct needs of DID. The aim of our work isn’t to merge identities but to establish harmony and mutual understanding within yourself.

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)
