Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or that you are going through life carrying an issue all alone? Maybe you went through a life transition and you aren’t handling it as well as you thought you would. Maybe you've realized that you are missing out on some of the good things in life and you know you need to change something, but don’t know what or how. You might have some traumatic or conflicting emotions and need to process the past. it's hard to talk to your family or friends about this, especially because it is so hard to explain what you are going through. We can work together to unravel, explore and rebuild.

When an individual is abusing substances, often times it manifests itself as chaos, unpredictability, and complete confusion. As a result, not only is the individual tormented, but the suffering extends to their family and loved ones. When this happens, confusion, anger, fear, and other uncomfortable emotions frequently arise in all parties involved, as a solution to this overwhelming problem seems unfathomable. To compound this issue, the substance abuse treatment industry can be incredibly difficult to navigate. Having worked in a wide variety of substance abuse treatment settings, I can help with this process.

New clients- after Jan 7, 2021. In person-Tues., Wed. 9-4 . Zoom Thur. 12-8 The individuals, couples, and families, that I have worked with for 25 + years, have truly inspired me. The natural connection that couples feel initially may begin to erode over time. Trust turns to mistrust, fulfillment to emptiness, defensiveness reigns. I use a unique approach to couples work called "Cycles.” I am not the expert on your family or you, rather the professional facilitator with a positive, solution focused approach to bringing about a sense of balance and well being. I use a mind/body approach as well.
