From the outside things look like they are going well, but inside you feel stuck and want to shut yourself off from the world. Maybe life seems to have sped up due to the demands of family, work or school. This is far too common and can be emotionally and physically debilitating. Somehow, we end up in our own way and things become overwhelming. The good news is we can also get out of our way. You have already taken an important first step and are considering psychotherapy. Now, imagine yourself being inspired, better able to cope and capable of embracing all that life has to offer. This is where I will help.

Can talking about your problems really make things better? Well, sometimes a thoughtful structured approach to life's challenges can be very helpful. But sometimes talking just doesn't seem to make our lives different. When we go through something challenging, upsetting, or overwhelming, our bodies are involved in the response. This means to resolve the issue, our bodies need to be involved in addressing the solution.

Addiction and mental health disorders are often misunderstood. I believe in meeting my clients where they are and empowering awareness and meaningful change. There isn't a one size fits all approach and I use various techniques to meet unique needs of each individual. Successful treatment involves education and support. I have worked in a variety of settings over the past 15 years including hospital based programs, day programs, outpatient programs, and within the criminal justice system.
