The cycle of addiction, of disconnection that is dissolving your relationship and the cycle of trauma that keeps you stuck in the past.
I remember thinking, "this can't be my life." I was depressed, disconnected from my wife, and struggling with compulsive behaviors that were out of control. Then I reached out for support. Stop trying to do it alone. The right support from a specialized therapist will help you find the power you have to break the cycle. As a clinician who started out years ago as a client, I know the fear of making that first call. I also know the relief of hearing that my therapist understood what I was going through, and knew the way out.

Is alcohol or another substance holding you back? Are you a professional or executive who has found that the one thing you haven't been able to overcome is substance use? Many clinicians don't truly understand the stress and loneliness that professional success can create. My experience as a senior executive and addiction professional can help you break free and achieve your true potential. Don't let substance abuse be the one thing you haven't been able to overcome as a professional. I utilize positive counseling techniques designed to capitalize on your strengths to help you overcome substance use and achieve your potential.

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).

I work well with clients who have experienced unresolved trauma. My preferred treatment modality is EMDR, which I use to treat not only the trauma but the negative cognitions associated with trauma. I find that addiction, anxiety, and depression are often decreased when the trauma is resolved. I have successfully treated clients with: sexual/physical/emotional abuse, phobias, combat trauma, dog attacks, and childhood bullying. I also have expertise in treating children and adults with learning disabilities, as I was a school psychologist for 10 years.

Addiction is not a problem to be fixed, but rather a person. I have worked with many people with various addictions and realize that addressing one problem from one perspective is not enough. I specialize in getting to know a person first and then helping that person heal from past hurts, learn skills for problem-solving, improve communication, build strong relationships, practice ways to manage strong emotions, learn to slow down and change their harmful or intrusive thoughts, draw from their faith for strength, develop strong support systems, and with all this, hope of long-term recovery can become reality.

Strategies for substance use recovery are being applied to other behaviors called “behavioral” or “process” addictions and support mental health, defined by the World Health Organization as “not merely the absence of mental disorders or symptoms but also a resource supporting overall well-being and productivity.
Are you stressed and use alcohol, other substances, food, exercise, sex, work, spending, gambling, or screen use excessively? Do you think “I got this” after planning a strict regimen for change only to break it soon after? Do failed attempts cause you to feel depressed? Do you long for past times when you could enjoy these pleasures? Do you suspect there may be core issues that drive these behaviors but fear slowing down to explore them? Is there a personal or family history of trauma or emotional issues that causes anxiety? Do you feel exhausted and yearn to wake up refreshed? Are you isolating to avoid people who are concerned?
