I work with couples and individuals struggling with problems like family conflict, past abuse, anxiety, substance misuse, and more. Throughout my 35 years of experience as a mental health professional, I’ve learned that most people are seeking one thing in particular – to feel more in control of their life. We all need validation and support. I provide this for my clients, while helping them feel more confident and hopeful about the future.

One of the most important things that therapy can help you to achieve is awareness. Awareness allows for change. This is a phrase I have coined that you will hear from me often. When we achieve awareness within ourselves, awareness of our environment, and awareness of our patterns of thoughts and behaviors - that's when positive changes can start to happen. As your therapist, I will be an additional resource for you as you endeavor to explore the areas of your life that need your energy and attention. You and I will develop a therapeutic relationship wherein we get to know one another and we work together toward your treatment goals

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist that works with all types of relational issues. Most of my experience has been gained through treating individuals, couples, and families. Individually, I work with clients to help them cope and gain skills to use on their own. With couples, I utilize methods to give couples the ability to communicate and turn toward each other instead of away. With families, I use a systems approach to help the family interact and communicate their needs.

The use of alcohol and drugs, domestic violence, suicide, chronic grief and loss, internalized oppression, emotional, spiritual, and mental wounds are ALL symptoms not causes of imbalance. In order to heal, a community needs to deal with the causes of historical and generational, unresolved trauma and move toward balance. We acknowledge our inter-connectedness to all that has been created in this life and the unseen world. Healing will take place through the use of cultural and spiritual knowledge including creation stories, ancestral teachings, journeying into balance and wellness, as it takes everyone to heal the community.

Substance Use Therapists

How do substance and drug recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

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

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 substance use reduce the amount of drugs they consume. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.

Are there specific medications for substance and drug use?

There are medications approved to treat substance use disorder—such as buprenorphine, methadone, naltrexone, and acamprosate. These medications do help people cope with substance use as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone can help reduce cravings, methadone is an opioid medication used to treat severe pain, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.
