I have been in the field of mental health and substance use treatment for 13 years.
I will be accepting new clients in January. I value transparency and direct communication so that everyone can make informed decisions. Sometimes we hesitate to reach out for help because we compare our experience to that of other people. It's important to recognize that our experiences are unique, as are the challenges we face. Everyone deserves to be heard and to have the opportunity for good quality of life.

I also work with family members, family systems, and loved ones of people who are struggling with substance use .
Going through life feeling misunderstood, disconnected from others, uncomfortable in your skin, and that the world isn’t to be trusted can be a lonely and frightening endeavor. Using drugs and or alcohol may seem to be the only real relief. Everyone has two sides to them, one believing nothing will ever change and another hoping for a better way. I provide a safe and supportive environment for you to explore the negative self-talk and inner critic that prevents you from being your authentic self, leading you to use substances to cope.

Welcome! You may be here because you’re looking for a new therapist, or maybe are just curious about whether counseling is right for you. Sometimes, people start therapy knowing exactly what they want to address, such as intense feelings of sadness, grief, anxiety, troubling substance use or high levels of stress. Other times, the problem doesn’t have a clear name. It’s possible you feel stuck, or that something’s not quite right, but have trouble putting it into words. Whether you know what you want to achieve in therapy or are unsure if it's even right for you, you’re starting in the right place.

I want you to feel empowered, hopeful, and proud of exactly who you are. As we grow, we all experience transitions and challenges that can shake our core beliefs about ourselves, our relationships, and our sense of belonging and purpose in this world. I have worked with children and caregivers to address the cause and effects of trauma, mental health issues, and substance use disorders on individual and family functioning. I am passionate about helping people work through difficult times or process past experiences to rebuild their sense of self worth, develop healthy coping skills, and confidently move into the future.

Life can be a struggle at times. I understand the dynamics and challenges facing those who seek to make considerable changes in their lives. I believe in creating a partnership with you to address your alcohol and/or substance use . Whether you are seeking a life of recovery or addressing consequences as a result of misuse, I can support you through addressing your needs. I have learned that working closely with another person can create new ways of thinking and applying new solutions to old behaviors. I understand the world of addiction, and I appreciate the unique challenges it presents to those who suffer. There is a solution.

"Superman's not brave. You can't be brave if your indestructible, its everyday people like you and me that are brave knowing we could easily be defeated but still continue to move forward"-unknown. It is a huge gift to be able to witness someone who had little hope become that person they always dreamed of! To give just one person the gift of hope; that is priceless. I have found that most people "in recovery", they are strong amazing people! You've overcome so much already, use those assets for your recovery instead of active addiction.

As a therapist, I believe in autonomy and a client-centered approach. I am here to primarily remind you, or tell you for the first time, that you are not alone. There are tools to relieve those feelings of restlessness, irritability, anxiety, depression, and impulsivity. Finding that solution begins with making a personal decision to address what is holding you back and taking steps to evolve into the best version of yourself. If you were to wake up tomorrow and your current circumstances were no longer impacting your life, what would your world look like?

Clients have described me as 'very professional but also friendly, laid back and not intimidating.' I work very collaboratively with clients to set goals and find strategies which will be most helpful to them. Some clients prefer to focus more on addressing painful symptoms and circumstances (depression, anxiety, relationships or work difficulties) while others may want to focus more on personal growth. I am more than happy to help clients with either area or both simultaneously, as they often go hand in hand and serve to increase happiness and satisfaction in daily life.

Let's work together to achieve what you really want in life! Coaching provides skills, structure and support in reaching personal goals. Unlike traditional therapy, the main focus of coaching is in the here and now: what behaviors would you like to change? Why is this change important to you? What steps can you take to move towards this goal?

With 20 year's experience, I have helped clients take a deeper, more insightful look at thought and behavioral patterns that hold them back from positive relationships, fulfilling careers, and a compassionate, worthy sense of self. Anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges are often the result of suppressing our authentic voice because of fear of rejection, abandonment, and self-loathing. We rediscover our genuine, original self by leaning into our fear of rejection, letting go of false beliefs about self and developing beliefs and new behaviors that are more empowering and in line with who we really are.

What type of South Portland mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in South Portland?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
