Are you looking to overcome a substance use disorder or any kind of addictive behavior (e.g. food addiction). Do you feel like you have tried so many times to be sober but just can't understand why you keep relapsing? My approach to treating these disorders is holistic but also can work with the 12 step model. I look at what may be driving this behavior the "underlying core issues" rather than focusing on symptoms alone. I do not see clients who are actively using drugs or alcohol. I am able to counsel family members of addicts.

Being a human being is complicated. As humans, we require a witness to our life experience and emotions. It is my honor to be that witness for each of my clients. For an adolescence, it can provide a rare space where they can work through feeling, conflicts and develop more adaptive ways of being. Our lives are full of change, and it can be the source of stress. For adults too who are stuck or are struggling with feelings, life, and trauma a safe place offers comfort. Therapy can provide a space for curiosity, discovery, and creation. A place where meaning and authenticity can be found.

It takes courage to work on ourselves--to create a space for growth where we can begin to uncover and clear what is blocking our path. This is true for children, adolescents, and adults; and I tailor my approach to each individual. With children, I use play therapy through which they can actively express their thoughts and feelings; with parents I provide a framework to better understand and respond to their child's unique needs. This might include case management and advocacy for children who require additional services.
