My approach to therapy is based on establishing a collaborative relationship with my clients aimed at helping them define, attain, and maintain their personal goals. I see my role as providing direct feedback, offering new insights, and helping to modify patterns of behavior that have prevented my clients from moving forward with particular issues. I believe in using a solution-focused approach utilizing cognitive behavioral techniques.

Reperceive the “fall-out” experience, from a difficult life, to the “fall-into” experience of your living. You may have heard a call to reshape how you are living. There is a better way. Being curious and open to the challenges, within every moment, is a skill. This skill can be cultivated and an “acquired taste” for change will emerge, in practice. Gaining the courage to grow can seem like too much to take on. Ease into the challenges and share the learned moments together. You may be surprised at what you find amongst the dust and debris of a difficult life. There is always hidden gems to be found when you look.

Life can feel overwhelming, whether our distress stems from not getting what we want, or getting exactly what we wanted and yet somehow still feeling unfulfilled. Anxiety, depression, or battling addiction can lead to feelings of frustration and hopelessness. The process of talking in a therapeutic setting is essential in cultivating self-awareness and obtaining the wisdom to make healthier choices. Each person is unique, and I am committed to finding what works best for every person who seeks my support.

Change is hard. People often seek psychotherapy around change. They want to change. People in their life want them to change. Or some life change is affecting them in a meaningful way. Often, it's a combination. By working together I can help you in this challenge. I frequently work with adolescents and adults struggling with addiction in themselves or in their families. Many of my patients are addressing anxiety, depression, questions or challenges regarding their sexual orientation, infertility, life transitions, traumatic experiences or eating disorders and other compulsive behaviors. A lot of my patients are college or graduate students.

Therapy is the hard work of becoming awake to, and accepting of, what is real in ourselves and in life. Only when awake and living within the bounds of reality can we be loved, loving, healthy and happy. Addiction, depression, anxiety are among the experiences that can interfere with our experience of a healthy, joyful life. I feel priveledged to assist and accompany brave individuals on this journey of learning to change what we can, and stop fighting what we cannot. My therapy work combines traditional psychodynamic and cognitive approaches with Buddhist psychology and mindfulness practices.

I love working with and helping people to live happier lives. In my years of experience working in the counseling field, I have assisted many people who struggle to function in their daily lives either because of a new hurdle or a life-long, mental health condition. Sometimes a person may feel hopeless, stuck, or unable to identify what holds them back. Other times, the client is in a new area of life that is unfamiliar or seems too intimidating to navigate. I strive to offer a compassionate, introspective, and collaborative setting where clients can feel free to explore the barriers that keep them from living their best lives.

Do you feel anxious and stuck, like something in your life needs to change? This stuck feeling is frustrating, overwhelming, and leaves you feeling like you don't have control over your life. You might find yourself in an endless cycle of worry, avoid trying new things, have trouble with change, will avoid confrontation at all costs, and doubt yourself, wondering if you’re “good enough.” We can figure things out together. I help people work through anxiety, recover from their addiction, and help men move past feeling stuck and unfulfilled, to living a life of meaning and purpose.

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.
