I have been a practicing therapist and have worked in the addiction field for over a decade, helping individuals and families with issues related to substance abuse, sex, pornography, and video game addiction.
Living a life with addiction is demanding, challenging, and anxiety-provoking. Whether you are struggling to manage your sobriety or your loved one is in recovery, I understand how difficult it can be to live a "normal life." I have experience working with teens and adults who are striving to find balance, create healthier family dynamics, and address traumas that have contributed to substance use. In addition to working in the addiction field, I also have years of experience supporting individuals with anxiety, depression, and stressors related to life transitions (i.e. career change, relationship issues, failure to launch).

Anxiety is a major obstacle that can get in our way of living the life we want. While a certain amount of anxiety is normal for all persons, those with excessive anxiety may find themselves experiencing constant worry, doubt, and self criticism.
