Announcement icon Due to COVID, I have largely converted to virtual therapy. I am still able to see people on my private screened in porch if necessary.
The primary focus of my practice for 40 years has been helping people achieve recovery from substance use disorders. I use a collaborative, motivational approach, rather than confrontation, and work with people on setting and achieving realistic and healthy goals for their problems. I believe, (as did Bill Wilson, the founder of AA) that there are many paths to recovery; each person must work on a program that reflects their unique needs and assets. I encourage people to explore their resources, their obstacles and their values in setting goals and in working a positive program. Secondarily, I am trained in couples/marital therapy.
Most people with substance use problems have struggled unsuccessfully to control their use, and feel demoralized and shameful. My initial goal is to restore a sense of hope and defuse the shame the often prevents a person from seeking help in the first place.
I have worked in this field for over 40 years, and have trained professionals nationally and internationally. I have written a book and several articles for professionals and for the general public. My office is comfortable and private, insuring confidentiality, including a private screened-in porch. I am comfortable with teletherapy.
