"I understand how difficult it is to ask for help for any Alcohol or Substance Use issue! How?...because it took me most of 20 years to do so myself. I also know how Anxiety, Depression and substance use interact, which causes paralyzing results, Why?...because I didn't realize I was self medicating my Anxiety and ultimately making it worse! That's why I have dedication the last 14 years to learning everything about the disease and clinical best practices on how to help you. I have been in the field of Addiction for over 10 years and understand the issues with group programs. That's why I do it differently! We can do this together!"

"One thing I have learned, of which I am absolutely certain, in both my personal and professional life experiences: we can't look outside of ourselves to guarantee deep-rooted peace and lasting joy. Short term fixes that originate externally might bring temporary relief, but will not bring unwavering peace. Repressed pain will eventually resurface, or come out sideways onto our loved ones. Lasting relief comes when we become honest with ourselves about ourselves, willing to experience the difficult emotions that we try to avoid through external distractions and open to the process of becoming comfortable with feeling uncomfortable.
