Being a person in long term recovery, 30+ years, I understand this search might feel challenging. We provide a compassionate and empathetic approach to drug & alcohol counseling, incorporating the many underlining issues that increase our desire/need to self medicate. I like to ask, in the words of Dr. Gabor Mate’, ‘why the pain, not why the addiction?” We know that addiction is often the way we manage pain that feels unmanageable. A coping skill if you will. The pain and ‘dis-ease’, and dis-comfort could stem from an underlining mental health disorder, unresolved feelings related to grief and loss and often trauma

If you are having difficulty getting sober and staying sober, or you find your addiction is causing your life to become unmanageable, it's time to get help. I can provide you with a complete assessment ,treatment recommendations and referrals for detox, sober living or residential treatment centers. I have extensive experience counseling dual diagnosis / co-occurring disorders, such as anxiety and depression, secondary to the addiction. I support the benefits of the abstinence model in most cases. I am familiar with the harm reduction, as an alternative to total abstinence, when indicated.

Change is an inevitable part of life. The lack of change or too much change can overwhelm us and derail our growth. No one escapes hardship and stress. During these times we need the trust, respect, and empathy of an impartial professional especially when family and friends are just too close to the matter. With more than 20 years of clinical practice, I've found that the healthier person reaches out for help beyond their immediate sphere. I see myself as a guide facilitating my patients' healthy risk taking and helping them manifest their visions for a better future.

Therapy can benefit quite a few people, many of whom don’t need to have a mental disorder to reap the benefits. Some people it can benefit include: People with Low Self- Esteem. Being confident can land you the relationship of your dreams, get you that promotion you always wanted and makes you feel good. The problem is that some people don’t have enough self-esteem. Sometimes we are not happy with our appearance, or an event in the past killed our confidence, such as rejection or childhood trauma. Either way, with therapy, you can develop your self-esteem.

I am committed to compassionate client care, and to meet you exactly where you are... whenever you are ready, because, the truth of the matter is, that most people cannot recover on their own.
