"I understand how difficult it is to ask for help for any Alcohol or Substance Use issue! How?...because it took me most of 20 years to do so myself. I also know how Anxiety, Depression and substance use interact, which causes paralyzing results, Why?...because I didn't realize I was self medicating my Anxiety and ultimately making it worse! That's why I have dedication the last 14 years to learning everything about the disease and clinical best practices on how to help you. I have been in the field of Addiction for over 10 years and understand the issues with group programs. That's why I do it differently! We can do this together!"

"I can attest,having worked with many clients over the years, I have witnessed time and time again the true value that a psychotherapeutic relationship can provide. Through hard work, growing authenticity, and commitment, a therapeutic relationship brings forth genuine opportunities for new & useful insight, new eye opening perspectives, the application of new and working coping skills, a freedom from debilitating challenges like anxiety, panic, depression, a renewed & focused life plan, significant transformational changes, and more. Therapy can have a significant impact, once you make the powerful decision to seek treatment, and develop new belief that life can be different."

"Need urgent work on your relationship? Can't do weekly counseling? Want real answers, not just a listening ear? There's a better way... With an intensive approach... You set aside several days all at once with two professionals to learn principles and tools that would take you 6 months of ordinary couples therapy to learn. You complete clinical assessments before we meet to immediately have an "x-ray" of the core, hidden causes of what's holding you back. With those keys, we can then custom-design how scientifically proven relationship tools can be applied to your unique relationship. Together we demonstrate how to use these tools."

"Anxiety and depression can make life very difficult. These symptoms only worsen if you hide them out of fear that others won’t understand or will be judgmental. It is important to know that there are specific treatment approaches that have been shown to be particularly effective. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Exposure with Response Prevention, and other Cognitive Behavioral approaches to help see thoughts and beliefs differently, and to act more in line with how we want to be. My approach also emphasizes a more accepting, compassionate relationship with one’s self to help therapy be most effective."

"Sometimes our lives can become unbalanced and things can rapidly spin out of control, with no end in sight. Whether it's someone we love and care about, or ourselves, we all at times, need help. Getting the necessary tools to overcome adversity, cope with chronic struggles, or help someone close to us can make a huge impact on our lives. The key ingredient is a willingness to change. If we are willing to make a difference in our own lives or the life of a loved one, then we just need some guidance. So let's explore what those steps will look like and start chipping away at the underlying problems."

"Often clients come into therapy with me when they are stuck in life, in a crisis, or in transition in a relationship or job or when emotions are just becoming too much to cope with. They want a change but are not always sure how to go about it. Taking the step to begin therapy is not easy for most people, but starting therapy often leads to a real opportunity to change, in ways that are not always expected. My style is warm, inviting and engaging, and I seek to connect to each person where they are at in life."
