When the brain is highjacked in response to difficult memories and the bad-actor urges to disappear, embrace chaos or dive in to substances overtake us, what are your options? How will you keep the peace with those you love? I call it the practice of recovery. The welcoming of perspective. The experiments with change. The myth of rock bottom. The clinical education on brain/body balance and the recalibration of confidence. The Ah-Ha moments of “That’s it! You get me!” The realization we don’t need new … we need the loving embrace of … you. Are you ready to lean in?

I’m a psychotherapist who helps couples and individuals impacted by trauma, addiction, or difficult life stages. People who need a partner to help shift the weight of their worries. When you feel so alone … shame makes it feel like no one could possibly untangle your predicament, I help lighten the burden. Together we make a plan for recovering wellness.

My practice offers warmth, relational safety, hope – and a plan to thwart the chaos of adverse childhood experiences, traumatic stress, toxic work, or relationship conflict. I specialize in treating partners and parents impacted by addiction in the family. My practice promotes resilience, accountability, positive action and the wisdom of self-attunement.
