"For 25 years, I have assisted people with a variety of addictions, from the exogenous abuse of drugs and alcohol, to the ones that stem from the chemicals already inside the brain, such as sex and love addiction, abandonment patterns, sexual compulsions, gambling, internet, and workaholism. Unlike most psychotherapists, I’m a Board Certified Addiction Specialist, well versed in both abstinence and harm reduction strategies. Unlike most addiction professionals, I am also psychotherapist who also treats the anxiety, depression, and other psychological issues that often manifest after being uncovered through recovery."

"I have many years of experience in dealing with anxiety, depression, loss, life transitions, addictions of all types, and relationship and identity issues. I think my strength is that I approach people on a very human level, with respect, caring and humor. I feel "we are all in the same boat" (including me) and that we all need someone to take us seriously, listen carefully and know how hard it is to be vulnerable to a 'stranger'. I will do my very best to help you create the life you want."

Focusing on others' imagined thoughts about you can be a problem when it starts to replace your own internal guidance system. Especially if you: Tend to be hypercritical of yourself Hold higher standards for yourself than others, but often feel disappointed by them Regularly find yourself in unhealthy relationships Excel at "helping" others reach goals but feel lost when it comes to your own? Feel stuck, especially if you are single? Struggle with self-esteem? Anxiety? Acknowledgement of your successes?"
