Feeling overwhelmed & trapped is exhausting & harmful to your confidence, health & productivity. Are you doubting your competence, overreacting, or having difficulty focusing and making healthy decisions? Reaching out for professional help shows you still have hope, a desire for better life and many personal strengths. I can help you: understand & manage anxiety, depression, dysfunctional eating behaviors, attention and substance use disorders. We will explore life and relationship patterns that impact you today in an emotionally safe & contained setting. You CAN expand your coping, resiliency, acceptance and mindfulness skills while reducing the self-numbing activities that have too many negative consequences.

With over 25 years in this field: clinical and administrative positions in hospital, community outpatient, eating disorders and addictions residential treatment, I am trained in and incorporate a wide range of therapeutic approaches. I offer clinical workshops and an Online Instructor for Sober College School of Addictions Studies.

Our work together will be individualized to help you live a life that is congruent with your values, temperament and personal goals. Exploring new skills, safely embracing your feelings and life circumstances can make living less of a struggle. Let me help you bring more ease into your life.
