"Are you concerned about your substance use and thinking about making a change? I can help you. Whether you would like to stop using substance, moderate them, or just cut down – I understand what you’re going through. You feel fear and anxiety, try to stop or cut down and go right back to your normal use just like you are on auto-pilot. You’re not weak, you’re just losing the battle against power chemical reactions in your brain. Let me help break free from this cycle. I'll personalize your counseling to be as effective for you as possible, not a "one-size fits all" approach. You'll learn new tools and coping skills."

"Sometimes we all hit a wall, and the tools that we have been using to manage life's challenges are just not cutting it anymore. Many of the clients that I work with are feeling overwhelmed and out-of-control. They find that worry, self-doubt, and even physical pain have become uninvited, yet constant companions. They are hurting from sleepless nights, second guessing themselves, forgotten pastimes, and lost relationships. But they want more, and they begin to engage in counseling because they are ready to care for themselves in new ways."

Navigating through these experiences in a therapeutic setting can make the difference between tolerating the pain (or even resorting to methods of easing the pain that create more problems) and coming through it more resilient with the ability to live a life with meaning.

"Being a woman and all of the roles that entails is difficult. Add to that a high achieving personality and things can get out of hand. While there is nothing wrong with being driven, if paired with inadequate or insufficient coping skills it can really be crazy-making. The anxiety that comes with perfectionism, caring what others think, and fending off your own criticisms can take up all of the space in your head. Before you know it, you realize that you're not living life you're surviving it. The goals you have for yourself are no longer motivators, they've become an endless stream of to-dos. You're absent from your own life."

Addictions might arise: food, sex, substance or over working. You might think "something is horribly wrong and I must fix it NOW!" It's really tricky to be a human being sometimes.
