About

Being a person in long term recovery, 30+ years, I understand this search might feel challenging. We provide a compassionate and empathetic approach to drug & alcohol counseling, incorporating the many underlining issues that increase our desire/need to self medicate. I like to ask, in the words of Dr. Gabor Mate’, ‘why the pain, not why the addiction?” We know that addiction is often the way we manage pain that feels unmanageable. A coping skill if you will. The pain and ‘dis-ease’, and dis-comfort could stem from an underlining mental health disorder, unresolved feelings related to grief and loss and often trauma
My intention is for us to create a path to Recovery, whatever that means to you, to recover and discover who you really are and who you want to be. To uncover that underlining dis-ease. We will meet you where you are (phone and video sessions available) assisting you in getting you to where you want to go. This work is simple, not easy. I am ready, are you?
The path to 'well being' is not one you have to walk alone. We are all lanterns on each other's path. Addiction is a disease of isolation. By creating a compassionate and loving team of people around you, you and your recovery will thrive. My goal is to assist you in thriving, not just surviving, this thing called life.....
