I offer several services that include assessment, treatment planning, recovery support and case management in addition to counseling. My goal is to do whatever it takes to give you or your loved one the best chance for lasting recovery and improve well being of the whole person. The treatment methodologies utilized are time-tested and have consistently proven successful. I understand that the causes of addiction and mental health are complex and often multifaceted; I am here to guide those we serve and their families every step of the way.
I specialize in 3 types of clients: High-performance individuals that live under a constant state of performance pressure, Testing to help parents understand what their child needs in education (gifted or learning difficulties), and Testing to help courts and lawyers decide what needs to happen in complex child custody cases. As someone that has lived in each of these scenarios, I've developed tools and techniques to help you find the answers you need. Whether you are worried about your child, feeling burned out, or need an accurate assessment for court, I'll strive to give you the care and attention I'd want for my own family.
I have been in private practice for 34 years and see individuals, families, adolescents and children. I believe people have the ability to make positive changes in their lives, given the tools to have better coping skills, enhanced self esteem, guidance with problem areas, and changing patterns of behaving and thinking, No matter how difficult the situation may seem, there is always a solution.
Life is hard. Maybe you're feeling stressed, anxious and depressed. Maybe you’re in a bad relationship or caring for others and putting yourself last. Maybe you’re using alcohol or drugs to try and feel better, to escape from it all. I've been there, it didn’t work. You may be asking yourself “Where do I start?” Sometimes we feel like we’ve lost our way, and wanting to feel confident again, to reconnect with our interests and passions. Maybe you want to find meaning and purpose in your life.
My clients are sensitive, smart, and creative, but may find these strengths difficult to access and manage. As a result you may feel disconnected, anxious, and depressed. You may self medicate with alcohol, drugs, or food. I help people reconnect with themselves and use their strengths to build the lives they want and deserve.
