Hello there! You’re here for a reason, and I’m glad that you are. Maybe you aren’t completely sure what that reason is. Maybe you’ve noticed that you’re more easily annoyed by those around you, or that the anxious or irritable parts of you have become more difficult to settle. Or perhaps your reason is more definable for you: maybe you’re considering making the brave move toward sobriety, or you’re ready to turn the page on some other chapter of your life. It can seem lately that we are living in a time full of uncertainty and constant change — changes in the world around us, our communities, our household and relationships.

Please note, I am not accepting clients at this time. Everyone is capable of learning, changing, and healing, no matter what life stage they are in. Beginning therapy can be overwhelming and it is often hard to know where to start. I believe in a warm, compassionate, empathetic, nonjudgmental approach to therapy to help you to find your start point, work towards your personal goals, achieve success, and feel better. I believe there is a strong connection between how we feel mentally and how we feel physically. Therefore, I strive to help my clients on a holistic level.

Whatever your goal, it helps to have a caring individual who will listen and guide you through this process.

*For most efficient response, please click on "contact us" on our website and complete the inquiry form.* You're overworked, overwhelmed, stressed out parents who do everything for your kids but can't find the time or motivation to take care of yourselves. Family dinners turn into screaming matches and you can’t get your kids to look up from their devices. When your cell phone rings and you see the school is calling, your heart drops and you wonder, “What now?” No one seems to like each other and you’re just so exhausted. This isn’t the family you signed up for, and no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get back on track.

I believe that each of us has something to learn from our past; however, the first step toward becoming the best we can be is to look at and learn from our past, but not live there. Seeking therapy is a statement of strength and belief that you, your family, and your relationships are of significant value. Some people seek therapy when in crisis. Many others, who are already doing well in life, seek therapy to prompt improvement or provide objective feedback to help them move forward.

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.
