"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.

"When working with couples,I focus on opportunities for bonding and enjoying each other as well as interactional patterns that may be sabotoging real intentions for a happy marriage. If someone has decided that he/she definitely wants out, we work on the patterns and beliefs that led to this stage and what needs to be done so the pattern won't be repeated in a new relationship. When working with individuals, I have many tools for relieving anxiety, depression, and trauma. and also for finding parts of self that give pleasure and pride lost in everyday responsibilities."

"Psychotherapy is a unique relationship in which you are invited to explore who you are. I believe therapy should be a space of freedom, where we can explore the ideas, fantasies, dreams, and thoughts we normally keep hidden – even from ourselves. Through this experience of speaking their true desire and singular story, many people reach new perspectives on old struggles and are able to create lasting change. I listen attentively and with nonjudgmental curiosity to your inner conflicts, thoughts, relationship patters, family history, ways of speaking, and more, as clues to where you’ve been and where you may need to go.
