Life and its problems, past and present, can cause anxiety, depression, and grief. Substance abuse seems like that's the only thing that gets you through the day, but that is temporary and leads to more problems. Feeling safe, connected, and knowing that you will not be judged, leads to honesty and trust. You can share your story and issues that are keeping you stuck. Learning and understanding coping skills in dealing with past issues, understanding the process of grief, and the cycle of substance abuse, will give you an understanding of what has kept you from moving forward. Let's work together to help you understand you,
Grief is difficult, but also a part of life. It is a process that is sometimes unbearable. I can help. From personal experience, I understand. I have quiet activities and books I can share. As a certified drug/ alcohol counselor I have been helping people for the past 10 years. It's not easy, but so worth it for future, good health, clear mind, and joy.
I also provide support to patients, families and caregivers dealing with cancer and cancer related issues. My experience, having gone thru cancer myself, in the past, has provided me with the ability and insight to understand and empathize with the fear and uncertainty.

Your first session will be a " getting to know" each other and discussing what brought you to therapy. We will discuss your intake info sheet because sometimes it's easier to explain. We will discuss goals you want to achieve so we can measure your progress. I use different therapeutic techniques, because everyone is an individual. It has to fit and be comfortable for you.
