About

Thank you for searching for professional support on your journey towards healing, stability, or growth at this time in your life. My goal is to provide you with ethical, effective, client-driven and client-centered support. My approach prioritizes the uniqueness of your life context and history as well as your strengths and qualities. I care deeply about ongoing informed consent, trauma-informed care, and all steps with you being voluntary. I aim to empower and collaborate with you to best support you in reaching your goals.
Much of my experience centers on substance use and addiction, and I hope to be supportive and helpful with a variety of issues from the day-to-day to the existential and spiritual. I will follow your lead in what works and what doesn’t, what you need and don’t need, and what you’re ready for or not ready for.
If you have any interest in working with me or you have any questions for me, please do not hesitate to reach out. If you take the opportunity for a free phone consultation with me and feel I am not the right fit, I will be happy to offer alternative options. Good luck in your search for that which you need.
