Many are unsure if they have an addiction, or if they really are an alcoholic. Sometimes you drink too much, have regrets the next day, feel embarrassed about losing control and worry about your health. Drinking and using to numb the pain leaves you feeling very alone. You are sick of hiding, of keeping secrets. Should you stop altogether or figure out how to moderate? I can help this exploration in a non-judgmental way to find answers. Many people in recovery are often disappointed their ‘problems’ are not fixed; they feel stuck, depressed and anxious and relationship challenges persist.

People often think about entering therapy because they are ready to make a change. In a non judgmental environment, we will explore areas in your life where you want to grow and over time, develop tools to address the challenges you face and gain a deeper understanding about yourself. I provide a therapeutic environment that is safe and confidential in which we talk about and understand your emotional reactions to life situations that cause you to feel stuck and unhappy. I will work collaboratively with you to identify unproductive ways of coping and help replace them with healthier ones.

Change—both expected and wanted or the complete opposite—affects us all, and we cope with it in varying ways. Traumatic events are never planned and often require new strategies to effectively navigate a world that may no longer feel as safe as it once had. The impact of loss, anticipated or not, deeply affects individuals, families and couples. My clinical practice is built on an investment in encouraging one’s own narrative expression of the human experience, identifying skills and strategies for living one’s best life, and providing a secure and caring place in which to grow and love change.
