I provide individual, couples, and groups with addiction-focused treatment.
I understand that 'alcohol and other drugs'...(cocaine, marijuana, opiates/painkillers, etc.) as well as relationships, money, food, work, technology, sex, etc. are merely dysfunctional band-aids to avoid the pain of inner woundedness. My therapeutic approach offers a deeper awareness of symptomatic addictions by providing the client with the 'space' and permission to explore the self-damage from these harmful 'toxins' and then learn the practice of thought and feeling detoxification. I can support my clients with 20+ years of relapse prevention therapy and techniques to replace the obsessive thinking with positive and self-affirming behaviors.

I have an innate ability to meet others where they are and to help those who struggle with addiction to finally break free and live a life they are proud of.
I know what it is like to live in a psychological prison, trying to "stay strong" while repeating the narrative "I'm ok!". You don't have to go on this journey alone. The common thread amongst all clientele is a desire for positive change. At times one may need a helping hand to guide them on their journey in a therapeutic, environment. Seeking guidance is a courageous first step to wholeness and lasting change. Seeking therapy does not mean that you are weak or "crazy"; it means you have decided to address your concerns with non-biased professional help. It's ok to find someone to help you cope with the stressors of life!
