Do you lie awake in the early hours of the morning or perhaps in the late night hours of trying-to-go-to-sleep and find yourself asking uncomfortable and seemingly unanswerable questions? “Am I happy…do I feel fulfilled…why do I feel lonely…what happens in this next chapter?” Are you in a state of transition? Perhaps you’ve dealt with death of loved ones and it has started you down the path of searching for a greater context. Your acceptable coping habits of eating, drinking, shopping, working, sleeping, not-sleeping, exercising, etc. are not answering these questions and you find yourself back to lying awake in the early hours.

I specialize in recovery from alcohol, drug, and gambling addiction and resolving the issues that have contributed to it. I understand your feelings of hopelessness and despair and how difficult it is to move forward despite your willingness to change. You believe that your way of coping isn't working anymore, that you've tried so hard to get through this alone, and you're tired of struggling and hurting the ones you love. You deserve healing, professional support, and expert guidance, and I know how to help.

Pema Chodron states that the "essence of life is that it's challenging." I believe that with the right support, your difficult life experiences and challenges, whatever they may be or however they stemmed, can be overcome with time. I work with adults, adolescents, and couples through these challenging experiences. I bring empathic energy, intuition, careful consideration, humor, and challenge to the process of converting difficulty into growth. My work is driven by philosophies and therapies based in trauma-informed care, neurobiology, attachment theory, nonviolent communication, Emotion Focused Therapy, Buddhism, and EMDR.

Being human isn’t easy. It can be awkward, scary, beautiful, exciting, and completely bewildering. Seeking help for your humanness is brave. Therapy can provide a safe environment to challenge lifelong patterns, address old wounds and traumas, and develop a deeper understanding of yourself. It can also help undo old wiring and unhelpful narratives so that you can create better habits, communication skills, and behaviors. Through a relational, direct, and compassionate approach, I treat individuals, couples, and families who want to find more joy, create better relationships, "update their software," and live more authentically.

If you are struggling with addiction or substance abuse, I can help. I understand how painful addiction is, and more importantly, I know that sobriety and recovery are the best routes to a better life. Being present in your life, no matter the circumstances, is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and to the people you love. Addiction is an insidious and lonely disease, but you can get and stay sober. You can live the life you envision. Recovery calls for commitment and it requires support. You can live free of addiction, and you can live in peace.

Alcohol Use Therapists

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
