Addiction compromises a person causing pain. You may be finding it hard to make the changes required to address a substance addiction. You can build one layer of foundation at a time so that your recovery can have a strong foundation. You may be isolating from others, experiencing a poor diet or one bad decision after another, this is normal in addiction. Your unique story of Alcoholism or Drug Addiction happened in stages, a slippery slope, that only gets worse. But there's good news, you are taking the time to consider getting help now, maybe again, and that's where your recovery starts. You are able to change starting now.

For the last 12 years I've enjoyed working in the non-profit sector helping people from various backgrounds. My therapy style is non-judgmental and relaxed in which I try to meet people where they are at. I help people address a number of concerns ranging from enhancing their self-esteem and coping skills to treating Trauma, Anxiety, Grief, and severe Depression. I'm experienced with helping adults communicate with other generations within their family and gaining healthier relationships. Over the years I've also fostered skills designed for helping men and women address a variety of challenges.

Balance, peacefulness, laughter. Most of us would like to be able to maintain a life filled without stress, great jobs, and healthy relationships. We know that life can be challenging and difficult at times and my concept of therapy is to help people to focus on themselves and learn strategies to find happiness and productivity. One of the most significant aspects of therapy is the therapeutic relationship and people need to feel comfortable, safe, respected and listened to. * I have been a licensed clinical social worker for over twenty years in private practice, schools ,clinics, hospitals and as a coordinator of a family violence program. .

Perhaps you feel overwhelmed and depleted from being pulled in many directions. You want to say no but find yourself saying yes instead, fearing that family and friends will get angry or be disappointed if you say no. You worry it may jeopardize your relationships if you do. Each time you think about setting a boundary, you feel anxious, or guilty, and sometimes even selfish for considering it. You want to live your own life. However, prioritizing yourself and honoring your own needs seems almost impossible. At times, you feel stuck, unable to know what you want, or focus on your life goals and dreams because you have little energy

Good therapy happens when you and your therapist work collaboratively to achieve your goals, you feel truly heard and understood and your therapist has the knowledge and experience to help you identify the obstacles to achieving your goals. I am passionate about the work I do with children, adolescents and adults and feel fortunate to enjoy going in each day. I've been told by many, I have a warm, caring style and frequently use humor in sessions. I help people understand the connection between their thoughts feelings and behaviors and ways in which they can make changes to find relief from the stressors they experience.

– My schedule is fully booked – As each person is unique, the best therapy is individualized. I am very flexible to what you personally need, constructing therapy based on what works to relieve suffering, foster growth, and develop insight. We will focus on understanding, but we might use mindfulness, anxiety management techniques, or other modalities. I avoid jargon and acronyms, preferring to talk in more ordinary or evocative language. Sometimes, there are big issues to grapple with, but often by focusing on seemingly small blocks, we can loosen the process of growth and the experience of being alive to one's own life.

At times life can be unusually painful, scary and confusing. With the COVID-19 virus we are living through such a time. Generally speaking, we may feel anxious, sad, discouraged and alone, and not know what to do. When someone listens to us carefully, we learn how to listen to ourselves, to our own inner life. Talking things out with someone in this special way can help us become clearer about who we are, our strengths and also our self-defeating ways, so we can move forward with an improved sense of self and direction.

As we navigate the inevitable challenges of our lives, the therapeutic process can be a powerful and effective way to reveal insights, acquire useful tools and strategies, gain strength, find peace, and reclaim joy. I believe that each of us has a unique capacity for growth and change, and that the compassionate support of a trained clinician can play a valuable role in this process of self-exploration and healing.
