I work well with clients trying to improve communication; adults coping with panic, bipolar disorder, depression, borderline personality and alcohol use.
** I am not accepting new clients at this time. ** I believe that people should not be limited to a label. We are so much more than problems or disorders; we are strengthened by our flaws and our most difficult experiences can transform us. I am direct, interactive, and strongly believe that people change through healing relationships. In sessions we will work together at a pace that feels right for you. We will identify and prioritize your goals, address problems that get in the way of your happiness, and collaboratively build lasting solutions. I will listen to and accept your feedback about how we are working together.

Substance abuse is one of the toughest problems someone can face. It’s a vicious cycle of making some progress, then backsliding and experiencing the shame, guilt, and fear all over again. Has it been the one thing you haven’t been able to overcome on your own? Have you searched for ways to overcome this, but nothing seems to be “sticking”? The good news is that you do not have to do this alone! Let’s do this together with an individualized program developed just for you. You can break this cycle and recover in private, one-on-one sessions that are totally confidential.

I understand self medicating with alcohol and drugs. I did it myself for years, in a never-ending attempt to avoid feeling sadness, shame or any other kind of pain. And when I finally escaped the clutches of my drug of choice, I didn't find "happiness" in the usual places, either. My practice is greatly influenced by my own journey, and the balance I've found in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). My goal is to help clients find their own direction and engage in a rich and meaningful life -- even in the presence of pain.

We all just want to feel comfortable in our own skin. We want to live our lives feeling inspired, happy, and purposeful. Somewhere along the way we may have sought out external things to achieve this goal: drugs, alcohol, relationships, jobs, social circles, money, status, etc. These things work for a little while…until they don’t. We finally get to a place where we realize we need help turning inward. We become willing to examine our trauma and core wounds and heal from what is in the way of us emerging into our fullest selves. This is where transformation begins.

Often one is asked what is wrong with you when they should be asked what happened. Often, we are asked to snap out of our thing, or pull oneself up by the bootstraps…however, we may have lost or boots, or our treads are worn. You cannot change what cannot see! This is a non-judgment safe zone. Come in for an annual addiction check-up, services, or assessment.

Choosing to begin therapy can be a difficult decision. Often, the desire to change can be accompanied by fear, confusion, frustration, or feeling stuck, with little idea what to do next. Making the decision to start therapy is a courageous one. Speaking with an experienced counselor can help gently guide you into a more hopeful and productive place. I provide an environment that is warm and compassionate, where you are accepted as you are. I view therapy as a space to become more aware of yourself, your relationships, and your life experience, and to progress towards more meaningful and hopeful life experiences.

The ideal client would be a motivated client in new recovery; however, I recognize that are many with substance abuse issues that need much more help including intervention, education and motivation.
