I am looking for a client who would benefit from a safe space to discuss and process their emotions. A client who would like to improve their overall mental health by learning new positive coping skills and wouldn’t mind completing therapeutic homework outside of session. My client would benefit from processing past traumatic events and learn how those experiences impact their current life.

Ideally, we use an eclectic approach with therapy. Encompassing one particular approach is not beneficial - a "one size fits all" is counter therapeutic and does not allow the client to find refreshing avenues to discover abstinence/sobriety. Coupling our therapeutic approaches with Self-Help immersion, or non-traditional means, is well received. Additionally, we focus on developing a relapse prevention plan from the very first session. We call these "living, breathing documents which change throughout treatment". Please feel free to call with any questions you may have for yourself or loved one.
