"If you struggle to stop or reduce substance use or other addictive behaviors, I can help. I use a harm reduction approach to understanding and treating substance use and abuse. Instead of focusing only on one’s addiction, this approach explores other contributing factors, such as co-occurring mental illnesses, family relationships, and medical problems. It encourages the client to explore their unique needs and background, and to develop their own treatment goals, which may involve moderation management, in addition to abstinence. I also offer treatment for other impulse control disorders, such as sex addiction. "

"Therapy begins with curiosity and a willingness to explore difficult emotions or areas that keep you stuck. Building a trusting relationship with a therapist in a warm, supportive environment is crucial to making the changes you want. Using a collaborative approach, we'll work to understand what is getting in the way of making positive change. I believe that each of my clients is the expert on their own experiences and I work to make you feel supported and heard, while helping you to shine a light onto things that are not serving you - limiting beliefs, negative patterns, or unhealthy relationships with yourself or others."

"Being a woman and all of the roles that entails is difficult. Add to that a high achieving personality and things can get out of hand. While there is nothing wrong with being driven, the anxiety and stress that come with perfectionism, caring what others think, and fending off your own criticisms can take up all of the space in your head. Before you know it, you realize that you're not living life you're surviving it. You want deeper connections, but being vulnerable is something you struggle with. The goals you have for yourself are no longer motivators, they've become an endless stream of to-dos. You're absent from your own life."
