Many are unsure if they have an addiction, or if they really are an alcoholic. Sometimes you drink too much, have regrets the next day, feel embarrassed about losing control and worry about your health. Drinking and using to numb the pain leaves you feeling very alone. You are sick of hiding, of keeping secrets. Should you stop altogether or figure out how to moderate? I can help this exploration in a non-judgmental way to find answers. Many people in recovery are often disappointed their ‘problems’ are not fixed; they feel stuck, depressed and anxious and relationship challenges persist.

Living a life where struggling is a regular experience is difficult to change, because no one wants to feel worse. Therapy helps by talking through what's happened, what feels wrong and what ideas you have about it, all which may be conscious or unconscious. What's unconscious surfaces naturally through our dialogue together. Most people enter therapy afraid, because they don't know where to start or are overwhelmed because so much has happened. With over 25 years of experience, I can help you navigate this terrain to relieve pain, clarify thoughts and beliefs, and to improve feelings of well-being.

You're here because you really want to change - to be happy, to communicate more skillfully and to eliminate the unwanted thoughts, feelings and emotions that keep you stuck.

I know how hard it is to change and how easy it is to give up. But there is hope. The good news is… with the right kind of help, you can make the changes that will bring meaning, happiness, balance and renewed energy, motivation and hope to your life - without spending years in therapy.

Past trauma may be negatively impacting your self-esteem or familial, work, peer, and/or romantic relationships. In our efforts to please others we can sometimes we lose touch with ourselves, or don't feel entitled to having our own needs met. You might be struggling with issues around identity and self-worth, or want to change unhealthy and frustrating patterns of communication. Boundary issues and a lack of self-care can leave you feeling depleted.
