"I understand how difficult it is to ask for help for any Alcohol or Substance Use issue! How?...because it took me most of 20 years to do so myself. I also know how Anxiety, Depression and substance use interact, which causes paralyzing results, Why?...because I didn't realize I was self medicating my Anxiety and ultimately making it worse! That's why I have dedication the last 14 years to learning everything about the disease and clinical best practices on how to help you. I have been in the field of Addiction for over 10 years and understand the issues with group programs. That's why I do it differently! We can do this together!"

"Psychotherapy is a unique relationship in which you are invited to explore who you are. I believe therapy should be a space of freedom, where we can explore the ideas, fantasies, dreams, and thoughts we normally keep hidden – even from ourselves. Through this experience of speaking their true desire and singular story, many people reach new perspectives on old struggles and are able to create lasting change. I listen attentively and with nonjudgmental curiosity to your inner conflicts, thoughts, relationship patters, family history, ways of speaking, and more, as clues to where you’ve been and where you may need to go.

"Need urgent work on your relationship? Can't do weekly counseling? Want real answers, not just a listening ear? There's a better way... With an intensive approach... You set aside several days all at once with two professionals to learn principles and tools that would take you 6 months of ordinary couples therapy to learn. You complete clinical assessments before we meet to immediately have an "x-ray" of the core, hidden causes of what's holding you back. With those keys, we can then custom-design how scientifically proven relationship tools can be applied to your unique relationship. Together we demonstrate how to use these tools."

"I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, eating disorders and substance misuse. Often people I work with feel isolated in their experience. Most of my clients want to change habits or ways of thinking that they have outgrown or would like to outgrow and they are looking for support in learning new ways of thinking and coping with the anxieties, stress and pains of life. I incorporate evidence-based treatments with tangible practices clients can use in and outside of therapy. The modalities I use include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, psychodynamic therapy and mindfulness practices. I support individuals in 12-step recovery, (OA, AA, NA and Alanon) as well as those seeking alternatives to abstinence such as a Harm Reduction model of support. I work with clients to understand and reduce their problematic behaviors while building awareness of the underlying issues at the root of the problems."
