"Change is difficult, but it is possible. I help people identify the changes they want to make and support them as they journey toward their goals. I use a variety of approaches, adapting them to what is most helpful for the individual. I am direct yet gentle and I will challenge you to trust yourself. I believe that living in the moment is one of the most helpful tools that we have available to us along with learning to quiet our fears, developing good emotional boundaries with others, and being able to identify what is our "stuff" vs. what is the "stuff" of others."

Our approach recognizes that each individual's unique situation and the factors that impact their use of drugs and alcohol can be understood in order to determine together what combination of therapy and resources fits best, rather than prescribing the same thing to everyone seeking help.There are multiple effective therapies and resources available for people who use alcohol and drugs."
