I specialize in supporting high-functioning adults overcome anxiety, depression, trauma, and drug or alcohol use.
I love helping adults from all stages and walks of life to understand the things that are holding them back in order to find ways through them. After recognizing underlying barriers, we can work towards fully realizing your strengths and adjusting certain behaviors and thoughts to see things and be yourself in a healthier way. In our first session together, we'll complete an assessment focused on exploring your past and present, current challenges and strengths, and specific problems that you hope to overcome. We'll discuss your specific goals for counseling as well as my recommendations for treatment to move towards those goals.

Break away from the painful, short lived New Years pledge. Or use your dry January to create meaningful, long lasting change. If getting back on the wagon or getting off drugs has been frustrating, try a different approach this year. If getting back to AA meetings or checking yourself into a program sounds unappealing or even futile you’re not alone. Solutions have that have failed in the past aren’t likely to work again. Recovery support, moderation management, relapse prevention, and compassionate, confidential care are my specialties. Ambulatory opiate detox and out of state or criminal justice assessment services available.

I understand the fear, anxiety, hopelessness, and discouragement of repeating the same cycle over and over again. Drinking too much and embarrassing or humiliating yourself often feels like it is damaging your soul. You keep trying to make changes but don't feel like you can let yourself down anymore. It's time to break this vicious cycle and you don't have to do it alone. I have been helping good people just like you make positive changes with their substance use for over a decade. You can break free and give yourself and your family the life you deserve. Stop letting substances hold you back from achieving your potential.

We want to be seen. We want to be heard. And most importantly we want to be loved and accepted. This is universal. However sometimes we lose our way; experience failure, depression, rejection, trauma, addiction, grief, anxiety, relationship difficulties...myriad things can keep us from our own personal success and my goal is to help my clients identity these barriers, embrace them, and work through them. The life we want is often within reach, but without healing, clarity or self-love can feel galaxies away. Let’s work collaboratively to identify what is getting in your way and what to do to build the life you want for yourself.

Accepting clients Apr 2024. Without judgment, I help clients overcome addictions to alcohol, weed, sex, food, and hard drugs by helping them face the very difficult triggers behind the addictions itself (such as unaddressed depression, trauma, and self esteem, etc; I particularly work with sexual addictions). This approach can be very emotionally difficult, so I recommend only clients who are ready for major life changes apply.

Individuals in their early 20's wonder what the next step is "for them". 30-somethings sometime face life-path decisions, maybe even boredom? Beloved pets or family members pass away. Married people are suddenly "single-again". the mid-life 50's often come with health issues that completely throw people for a loop! The 60+ often involve taking care of aging parents or are facing the death experience themselves! Grandparents sometimes find themselves raising their children's children! What is going ON?

In my more than twenty-five years as a healing professional and coming from a background that includes theater, teaching, banking and hospital administration, I have come to view psychotherapy as less a set of scientific procedures than as a healing art. I believe that everyone has a primary need to be heard, seen, and known. I have the experience and sensitivity to gain trust and be totally present with my client's life story and to hear, see, and understand everything I can that will help me assist in the recovery process.

An ideal client would be someone who is empathetic toward others and compassionate toward themselves and is open, coachable, and capable of accepting feedback. The process of therapy takes time and energy so having someone start the process of therapy with an open mind and a willingness to put in the work to see the process through is also helpful. Jennifer also offers clinical supervision to pre-licensed therapists (ASW, AMFT, APCC). In addition to therapy and supervision, she provides consulting to therapists seeking to start or grow their private practice. She's also passionate in counseling other mental health providers.

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.
