One of my areas of expertise is helping people deal with substance abuse issues.
Is there a change or problem in your life to which you can’t quite adjust? Life presents us with many kinds of transitions – the death of a loved one, illness, divorce, separation, alcohol or drug problems in yourself or a loved one, health issues, and others – that can induce stress and anxiety. The good news is these indicators of stress may be the signal that you are on the threshold of a positive change. Counseling does not have to be a last ditch effort, undertaken only when you feel at your wit’s end. Instead, it can be a forum in which you can explore and experience yourself in a climate of safety and support.

I have 20 years of experience as a clinical social worker and prior to that was a home-based family counselor. I view my role as helping the person clarify troubling life experiences, past and present, and to understand their responses to those experiences. These may include: difficult relationships and families, unresolvable ambiguity; agonies of adolescence; substance and alcohol abuse, or legacies of trauma and existential dilemmas. I believe each person contains the seeds of their own solution and I work to nurture that individual solution. This happens in a relationship where it becomes safe to "say anything."

Are you or a family member struggling with an addiction, loss, stressful job or other personal concern? As an active and engaging therapist, I have observed that when the chemistry between therapist and client works, the process of therapy can provide a multitude of results: curbing self-destructive patterns of behavior, providing relief from painful emotions, increasing productivity at work, increasing behavioral control and achieving greater meaning in one's life. I believe that these meaningful changes occur when there is a joint process of discovery in which the therapist attends to the expressed needs and goals of the client.

I am very passionate about my work helping individuals, couples, and families struggling with or alongside personality disorders, addiction, and sexual dysfunction and sexuality issues to prevent these from continuing to wreak havoc on their lives.
Sometimes it can be really hard to connect to people. Sometimes it feels like nobody cares or can "relate". Sometimes this means it's time to try something different with somebody different - let's see if I can be that somebody different for you. Therapy can be a challenge because it requires a lot of trust in someone that you just met, which is why it can be so important for me to make my clients feel as understood as possible. When life starts to feel unbearable or when it seems like everyone is against you, sometimes that's when it might be time to try something different and reach out for help.

It can feel overwhelming to be proactive about making positive changes in our lives. Everyone has their own complicated life circumstances related to family, work, relationships, and mental and spiritual well being. Therapy can be an essential tool to work to un-complicate these circumstances and focus on making happiness and wellness a daily priority. When we feel overwhelmed with worry or that it's impossible to accomplish daily tasks we feel powerless.
