"I understand how difficult it is to ask for help for any Alcohol or Substance Use issue! How?...because it took me most of 20 years to do so myself. I also know how Anxiety, Depression and substance use interact, which causes paralyzing results, Why?...because I didn't realize I was self medicating my Anxiety and ultimately making it worse! That's why I have dedication the last 14 years to learning everything about the disease and clinical best practices on how to help you. I have been in the field of Addiction for over 10 years and understand the issues with group programs. That's why I do it differently! We can do this together!"

"One thing I have learned, of which I am absolutely certain, in both my personal and professional life experiences: we can't look outside of ourselves to guarantee deep-rooted peace and lasting joy. Short term fixes that originate externally might bring temporary relief, but will not bring unwavering peace. Repressed pain will eventually resurface, or come out sideways onto our loved ones. Lasting relief comes when we become honest with ourselves about ourselves, willing to experience the difficult emotions that we try to avoid through external distractions and open to the process of becoming comfortable with feeling uncomfortable.

"I believe that every day up until now has helped you to be the person you are today, and find it helpful to explore your family of origin dynamics to help in giving you some insights about your current functioning and relationships with others. While exploring the past, however, I find that my patients are coming in for symptom reduction, and not just insight. Which is why I am also very solution-focused. Through the combination of the two, my clients typically see a decrease in current symptoms, yet gain insight into preventing them in the future."

This can be due to many reasons, such as addiction, grief, relationship problems, stress, divorce, family conflict, anxiety, depression - to name just a few.

"Need urgent work on your relationship? Can't do weekly counseling? Want real answers, not just a listening ear? There's a better way... With an intensive approach... You set aside several days all at once with two professionals to learn principles and tools that would take you 6 months of ordinary couples therapy to learn. You complete clinical assessments before we meet to immediately have an "x-ray" of the core, hidden causes of what's holding you back. With those keys, we can then custom-design how scientifically proven relationship tools can be applied to your unique relationship. Together we demonstrate how to use these tools."

"Anxiety and depression can make life very difficult. These symptoms only worsen if you hide them out of fear that others won’t understand or will be judgmental. It is important to know that there are specific treatment approaches that have been shown to be particularly effective. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Exposure with Response Prevention, and other Cognitive Behavioral approaches to help see thoughts and beliefs differently, and to act more in line with how we want to be. My approach also emphasizes a more accepting, compassionate relationship with one’s self to help therapy be most effective."
