Whether you are coming to therapy because you are battling addiction, have relationship issues, unresolved trauma, or are striving for more balance in your life, I am here to help. Making an appointment with a therapist takes courage and is the first step toward personal growth and change. Some people come to therapy to improve their communication skills while others come to explore their unresolved pain that may show up in various symptoms such as, depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. If the underlying pain is not dealt with, life can seem difficult and maybe even unbearable. There is no need to suffer. There is hope.

For the past 14 years, I've worked with adults struggling with eating disorders and substance abuse disorders. For seven years, I served as the family program director at a treatment center for men with addiction issues. I found this role to be especially helpful because I worked directly with the clients as well as addressed the many challenging dynamics that occur within families. I know that most people who struggle with substance use disorders have a heightened awareness of other people’s emotional states. This can be both a gift and an overwhelming challenge that I can help you to navigate.

Are you struggling with an addiction issue? Afraid you can't stop? Dealing with addictions, whether alcohol, drugs or a behavioral addiction such as gambling, can create a feeling of loneliness, shame and despair, and often the fear that "I'll never be able to stop this, it's really screwing up my life and I'm too afraid to ask for help."

I have experience working with a wide variety of clients, aged 8 to 78, whose challenges have included, but are not limited to, addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar, and divorce.
Life hurts! Let’s be real, everyone needs to talk and unpack their emotional bag because life can really beat us up. The collaborative journey of therapy is a unique opportunity to open new doors or peel back the layers of life, without the fear of doing it alone. In such a fast-paced, demanding world, it’s important to take time for self-care and therapy can be an important component of that. Everyone is an expert on their own life; however, complex relationships, demanding careers, and the intricacies of our family systems can be confusing and often times feel at odds with one another.

First, family members of people with addiction or mental health issues often find themselves overwhelmed by the actions of their loved ones and desperately in need of support and direction.
I work with clients who are struggling to function fully and effectively in some or all aspects of their lives. This struggle might arise from chemical dependency, mental health challenges, stage of life transitions, grief/loss, or the patterns that arise from early challenges, such as childhood trauma. My goal is to "tune in" to where you are and what you are needing in your life today, to be responsive to the particular needs of the individual, as a support, witness and guide.
