Announcement icon I have immediate openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty.
You know how addiction can hurt the entire family, even the person who doesn't use drugs or alcohol? Well, we provide individual counseling to help the family member deal with stress and be a healthy part of the whole family's recovery. As an animal-assisted therapist, I lean on the healing power of nature and the mind-body connection to help you overcome anxiety and enhance self-compassion. Benji helps me create a gentle, joyful atmosphere in the therapy room, where we can celebrate you and your desire to grow.
What can you expect with animal-assisted therapy (AAT)? Benji is a sweet-tempered hound who loves to cuddle and play. Research has demonstrated that AAT is an effective treatment for easing depression, soothing anxiety, and improving emotional well-being. It is especially good for people struggling with relationship issues or major stressors in their lives.
We specialize in helping the people who help addicts- spouses, parents, and siblings effected by addiction. Together we can explore your thoughts and feelings about the changing relationship, identify enabling behaviors, and practice skills for eliminating codependency. We can turn the focus back on you.
