Recovery from active addiction is possible. I’m not promising it will be easy or happen overnight, but I can promise it’s worth it. Life is for living, and this isn’t a dress rehearsal.

Life can be so difficult at times. With so much going on in the world around and often within us it’s all too easy to lose your balance, feel lost and isolated. You may be experiencing increased feelings of anxiety, depression, fear or anger and resentment. Relationship conflicts may intensify or reinforce past traumas. As a professional with over 20 years of practice treating trauma and other mental health conditions, I can provide the guidance and support to help you make the changes you need to move beyond this challenging period of your life, toward something that feels more authentic and true for you.

I wholly believe we all have capacity for growth, regardless of where we begin. Life is fluid and people are not diagnostic labels, contrary to what social media would tell you. People are much more complex than a handful of symptoms on a Tik Tok video. Because of this, I utilize an integrative model in my work, incorporating different therapeutic styles depending on the client and the circumstances. My basic approach is psychodynamic in nature - helping you to understand what has happened in your life so you can better see the patterns that are no longer serving you, and identifying actions with you to change them.

I bring curiosity, calm and compassion to a session. It is my goal to help you toward your goals, creating understanding, spaciousness and self acceptance along the way. I find we resist (and feel stuck) for a reason, and that if we can hear that reason and make space for it, pressures ease and we can move forward again with greater ease and internal connection.

If you've made it this far and you're reading this, you must be a Warrior. Really. Having Substance Use Disorder (SUD), or loving someone who has SUD, is not for the weak at heart. I liken it's reach to a tornado, an EF5 tornado actually. But here's the thing; You and I working together - we are to SUD what FEMA is to a tornado. Together, we can pick up the wreckage, organize it, decide what parts you want to keep, which ones you want to fix, and where to start fresh. You are not alone. In fact, 1 in 3 American families are struggling with SUD in the home. 22 Million Americans are in long-term recovery. All of them needed help too.

The most important aspect of my work as a therapist is the relationship between therapist and client. This allows the therapuetic alliance to be formed. My focus is on teaching adults and seniors new coping skills and life skills to help alleviate their symptoms of depression, anxiety, fears or phobias. I also help people who are struggling with traumatic memories using EMDR as a treatment modality. I have been trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, teaching one to change existing thought processes thus leading to positive thinking and coping skills. I use a holistic bio-psycho-social model which incorporates mindfulness therapy using relaxation techniques.

I have never met an addict or alcoholic with a drug or drinking problem. Does this sound strange? The fact is I've met hundreds of individuals with a solution that is no longer working. Drugs and alcohol have been the solution, not the problem. Addicts and Alcoholics have an above average intelligence and a highly sensitive nervous system. This combination is especially challenging in these unprecedented times when it is natural to reach for relief in the form of a substance or behavioral addiction. If your solution is no longer working, I am here to help. I have maintained sobriety for over nearly 40 years. It can be done.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
