Ever feel like life is not going how you expected it to? We often have expectations of how we should be feeling or what our life should be like, and our reality doesn’t always match up. This can result in uncomfortable feelings like anxiety, sadness, disappointment, or stress. While these feelings may not be comfortable, they are a part of our lives. Whether you have been feeling this way for a while or just recently, the fact that you are reading this probably means that you have decided to seek help.

People come to therapy for emotional support and seek practical solutions to the very real issues in their lives. I recognize that my clients need to work thru the emotion connected to their circumstances and are also very much looking for a fresh perspective, based in experience and professional training, to help them determine what they can do about it. I work to help my clients find solutions whenever possible & develop effective ways to cope with the impact of those things they can't change. I take an approach to counseling that is practical and goal oriented and have a style that both men and women can connect with.

The relief you seek is inside of you…let’s find it and make it stronger than the problem! You may be fed up with using/abusing substances to cope with other issues (anxiety, depression, post-trauma, etc), feeling a happier life will always be out of your reach or tired of looking in the mirror and seeing shame, guilt, or discontent. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. You’re ready to relieve yourself of the control substances seem to have over you . You’re ready to regain the confidence in yourself you once had. Most of all, you’re ready to flourish in life rather than just live (survive).

I believe that the most crucial aspect of therapy is the relationship between the client and the therapist. The therapeutic relationship is part of what helps facilitate change. I help my clients make shifts in their relationships–the relationships they have with themselves, each other, and with their problems. I understand therapy to be a place not to run away from one's problems, but to turn toward them, a place to find ways to connect and to move toward health and wholeness.

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.
