I understand the profound impact addiction has not only on the addict, but also on his family.
You're using drugs/alcohol too much, and you can't stop. You are lost, miserable and scared, and you want to be found. I offer a compassionate, supportive and direct approach to help you meet your needs and achieve your goals. You're ready to explore your underlying, and probably ancient, beliefs that you hold about yourself and that fuel chronic negative thoughts and behaviors. We will work together to rediscover your authentic self, that person who was somehow left behind and is waiting for you to come back. I provide an eclectic approach. You receive a personal assessment, then focused treatment that best fits you.

You can clear patterns at a deeper level that create problems in your relationships, or learn to lessen pain and worry from loss,body image issues, addiction , trauma, ADD and more.
Your mind and body make a powerful, interwoven pair. Is your body expressing what the thoughts are repressing? Easing and gently lifting your sense of heaviness from anxiety, depression, grief, isolation and emptiness of spirit can be closer than you ever believed! Let me guide you to the other side of "stuck" in your personal and professional relationships, emotions, body issues, and success. When we are in a session all the focus is on being fully present for,and deeply listening to you, offering a clear, kind and soothing direction, towards releasing unhealthy thought patterns by integrating with body feelings.

My specialities include anxiety, depression, substance abuse/ addiction , grief and loss, relationships, communication, family-of-origin, life transitions, career and navigating dating.
There are many reasons why people reach out for support and guidance from a professionally trained therapist. Though this step isn't always the easiest, it is often one of the best decisions a person can make as it is a huge act in self-care and taking charge of ones life. Finding the right match with your therapist is one of the most important elements of therapy and I will do my very best to help ensure that you are connected with other therapists who can help if I am not the right fit for you.

I specialize in the treatment of substance abuse/ addiction , anxiety/depression, low self-esteem, and those struggling with intimacy and interpersonal connection.
As a psychotherapist with over 10 years of counseling experience in the Bay Area I have come to appreciate the importance of humor and honesty in developing a therapeutic relationship that encourages positive life changes. I work hard to develop a comfortable and safe space for my clients to identify and address barriers to progress in their personal and professional lives. When we are honest with ourselves, I think we so often find that our most ardent critic and obstacle to living a fulfilling and happy life is ourselves.

The last 15 years I have worked extensively with individuals struggling with many forms of trauma and substance use disorders - as well as the resulting relational, emotional and physical disconnections.
We all need a safe place to unpack stress and explore unhealthy patterns in order to create the meaningful changes we want in our lives. I encourage clients to approach therapy with an open and curious mind. For my part, you can expect compassion, collaboration and an unwavering authenticity in each session - with a healthy dose of humor when welcomed.

I have experience in co-occurring substance and mental health along with family/couple therapy.
I know what it's like being scared to seek help. I know that asking for help can sometimes feel like things are failing and I caused them. I also know how nervous I felt when I looked for assistance and wanting to begin therapy, scared with questions like, will I be judged? Will they keep my confidence? Can I trust them? I knew that when seeking therapy and looking for help all I wanted was for things to be better, get better, live healthier and be accepted. Therapy is scary, it can bring up issues that may be more frightening than you would like to cope with. Therapy is also helpful, healthy and the best part is, you're not alone.

I also specialize in working with couples, addiction , PTSD, anxiety and depression.
Self-discovery is a unique journey that we all take. Our experiences, intersectional identities and environments are constantly shaping who we are. This can be an exciting and challenging time in which we tend to engage in a reflective process as various questions arise. “Will I fit in here?” “Who is there to turn to for guidance?” “What does this experience mean for me?” Individual, couple and family therapy can be an integral part of working through challenges, all of which I fully embrace on the therapeutic journey.

Addiction Therapists
A person with an addiction uses a substance, or engages in a behavior, for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeat the activity, despite detrimental consequences. Addiction may involve the use of substances such as alcohol, inhalants, opioids, cocaine, and nicotine, or behaviors such as gambling.
