My belief is that healing is possible and that all of us have the answers and solutions to troubling personal questions and stressful circumstances in our lives, but sometimes we all need a bit of support and guidance to find those answers. Recovery is an amazing and sacred journey, one that leads to self-healing, self-fulfillment, and happiness. I am a Licensed Substance Abuse Treatment Practitioner specializing in working with those seeking a better physical and emotional life and overall well-being. I use empirically sound evidenced-based interventions to assist with your healing process.
Since COVID, the patients I treat have been against in-person sessions. It made sense to me after they explained how convenient teletherapy was for them, how they were saving money on gas, and how they noticed a decrease in stress by not having to drive in traffic to get to my office. Makes perfect sense. Call me to schedule a teletherapy session ASAP!
Recovery is an amazing and sacred journey, one that leads self-healing, self-fulfillment, and happiness. I have embarked upon this journey myself and know first hand the amazing rewards it offers.

Teletherapy has proven great! I do favor CBT specifically cognitive restructuring and neuroplasticity (rewiring the brain) to make positive life changes. I regularly use many other therapies as well, it just depends on which will most benefit my patient and resolution to the problem. I will help you learn how to push back against negative thoughts to begin your healthy life transformation.
