I work with motivated people who have perhaps come to realize that they are stuck in fight or flight, always feel “on”, stressed, or frozen in their lives. People seek me out to work on anxiety, depression, and complex traumatic issues like abuse, neglect, and suicidality. Many clients simply seek balance in their lives and to feel connected to themselves and others again. I also work with those in/or seeking recovery or harm reduction from substance use and/or behavioral addictions. While I am not a substance use counselor, I can work as a part of your recovery team to help strengthen your recovery and reduce relapses.
