Substance use issues usually mask real life problems and mental health challenges. Support varies per person - no one size fits all and there is never a quick mend. I believe in meeting you and your family where you're at, and creatively working together toward long-term solutions in achieving a healthy personal and family life.

It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

Relationships are complex & it may be time to explore how you have been impacted by past unhealthy relationships. You may feel as if you are not enough, a bother or annoyance to your family. Often seeking acceptance from the family even though you know it may not happen. The struggle one has towards being accepted by family members in order to feel as if you are good enough can often feel unbearable or never ending. Survivors of past damaged relations can make one feel as if you have no worth or value & leave you struggling to identify this worth & seeking approval from others. You are not alone in these thoughts & feelings.

I want to create a relationship with my clients based on trust, mutual respect, and unconditional regard. I feel that if I can create this environment I can more deeply connect with others and hope to see things from their perspective. I believe that people have the inner capacity for change, and I want to help them be more able to readily access this. This can look different based on each person, helping people move forward in a way they feel will be most productive. I also value multicultural differences and in an effort to more fully understand a person's frame of reference.

Has your life drastically changed recently due to circumstances beyond your control? Of course. Life as you knew it has suddenly and radically transformed. You did not choose this. So, how's it going so far? It's utterly normal to feel thrown off center and out of your comfort zone. Coping may be a serious challenge, depending on who you are and how drastic the changes are that you face. For many, the new normal feels anything but normal. That doesn't mean it's all bad. But whether your focusing on silver linings or not, Covid-19 and its consequences can be a new source of stress and anxiety. I'm ready to listen and here to assist.

Relationships with others (partner, boss, siblings, friends, clients) are a central source of meaning and sometimes difficulty for us. I can work with you around relationship issues, including commitment, communication, sexuality, infidelity and healthy conflict.
