Announcement icon I am currently providing day time and evening telehealth therapy through my HIPAA compliant web-conference platform, doxy.me.
You have a love/hate relationship with alcohol--sometimes it's enough to make you throw up. Feelings of guilt and shame about drinking hang heavy on your heart. After making countless promises to yourself and others to stop, your failure sits out there for everyone to see. Last night you had not a care in the world. This morning it’s hard to look at yourself in the mirror. Embarrassing episodes from the past haunt you. The hangovers are upsetting, but not as upsetting as the anxiety and depression you keep at bay with alcohol. You know your life would be better if you could change but you still haven’t found a way to do that.
With over 25 years of experience, I’ll take the time to listen to your story without judgment and work with you to create an individualized plan – no cookie cutter solutions here! We’ll work collaboratively to identify and implement research-supported strategies and tools to manage the situations that lead to excessive drinking.
Let’s clear the fog together! Reclaim your power and your life. I can help you discover more confidence, more control, and a better quality of life. Contact me right now for a free 20-minute consultation. It’s my privilege to help you.
