Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

I've been helping people recover for over a decade. You're not 'weak'. You're just caught in a vicious cycle and I can help you end that by learning new coping skills and implementing proven strategies. We'll create a personalized plan you can achieve based on your values and goals and break the cycle. If you're contemplating change, I can help you.

If you don't feel the "one size fits all approach" will work for you, you're probably right. My affordable, confidential and effective counseling will help you change at your own pace. Visit my website to learn more and call or email me for a free phone consultation. Some PPO insurance plans with out-of-network benefits may reimburse you for my services.
