Many people with substance use issues also suffer from trauma. Feelings of anxiety, fear, anger, grief, depression, loneliness, feeling judged, and misunderstood are very normal. You may not trust the world around you and may not know how to cope with symptoms of trauma alone and will instead seek to numb your emotional turmoil. Both are lonely and isolating issues. Substance use is an outward manifestation of your pain and with supportive trauma and substance use counseling combined, your addiction can be treated as well as the underline symptoms that cause the need to numb your emotions and avoid your reality.
I am a Trauma Certified, Substance Use Counselor and a Licensed Therapist. I utilize a combination of Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, DBT, Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness Practices to help reduce the symptoms of trauma, anxiety, and depression that complicate and contribute to Substance Use Disorders.
I am a Native American therapist. I grew up with the detrimental effects of trauma, pain, and substance use in my family and all around me. I saw the suffering everywhere I looked. I decided that I would devote my life helping to end the pain of addiction. If you are suffering from trauma, anxiety, depression and/or addiction, there is hope.
