Seeking a counselor is a very brave thing to do. So often the fear gets in the way of us being our best selves. I know the feeling of vulnerability when meeting with a therapist for the first time, which is why I always provide a compassionate, non-judgemental environment for my clients to explore. I believe the counseling relationship is a partnership, with the goal of growth. Whether things from your past or current life challenges, I am here to listen and help you regain peace and contentment.

Ideally, we use an eclectic approach with therapy. Encompassing one particular approach is not beneficial - a "one size fits all" is counter therapeutic and does not allow the client to find refreshing avenues to discover abstinence/sobriety. Coupling our therapeutic approaches with Self-Help immersion, or non-traditional means, is well received. Additionally, we focus on developing a relapse prevention plan from the very first session. We call these "living, breathing documents which change throughout treatment". Please feel free to call with any questions you may have for yourself or loved one.
