"Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab."

"I warmly welcome you as you are, and hold a safe space to support your intention for growth and healing as your witness and companion. I offer experiential therapy, so you can go beyond cognitive understanding of an issue to actually having a transfomative experience in session. I hold a body-based, integral, and spiritual/transpersonal frame for the work of therapy. This means that relief and healing can come from integrating mind with body and emotions, and expanding awareness. This can not only alleviate what is causing our pain, but also awaken our dormant potentials."

"Showing up is the hardest part. Once you're in the room, healing can happen. The act of being there says, "I deserve to be happy. I'm willing to do what it takes to feel _____ (peace, joy, love, self-esteem, motivated, relieved, fulfilled, or just plain better!). The space we create together is sacred. No matter what your faith, you may have a sense that a higher source is guiding your process. Truth reveals itself when it's allowed to come through. It's not about "figuring it out," as much as it is about letting go."
