When people seek therapy, they are often uncertain, hurt, exhausted, and feel defeated. Each person possesses the strengths necessary to overcome any problem, but sometimes need some help learning how to use and recognize them. If you've ever found yourself with the need to numb your life or emotions, I welcome you to consider a change through judgement-free and supportive therapy. My passion is helping people impacted by addiction, substance use, porn misuse, low self-esteem, or trauma rebuild their lives.

If you have been told you have to attend a substance abuse educational program this may be for you. I receive many calls from people who have been directed by their employer, a social service agency, the courts, their attorney, or other entity, to attend an education program for substance use/abuse and/or addiction. The group is designed to increase your understanding of the negative effects that substance use/abuse has had on your life and to provide direction for improvement. This is only for those who are willing to take it seriously. It is not simply a "check the box to meet the requirement" program.

Let’s see if we can “fit". Our first meeting will be to get to know each other and look at what are the best options for you, the client.

Alcohol Use Therapists

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
