I am passionate about providing high quality treatment for someone affected by addiction and/or mental health. With my dual licenses as a licensed clinical social worker and a licensed clinical drug and alcohol counselor, I have the unique training, education, and experience to provide therapy for individuals suffering from an addiction or mental health disorder and their spouses and families. I understand how mental health and addiction disorders can wreck havoc on an individual and family as well as the ensuing struggles to get back on track. I work with my clients to enable them to live a healthy, sober lifestyle.

Are there aspects of your life that you are unhappy with? Are you feeling anxious, struggling to follow your dreams or having difficulties in your relationships with others? Are you struggling with the impact of past traumatic experiences? Are you dealing with chronic pain? If so, therapy can be helpful to you! My approach centers on fostering connection and healing. I prioritize a trauma-informed perspective, shifting focus from 'what's wrong with you?' to 'what happened to you?'. This approach is particularly empowering for trauma survivors, who may have received multiple diagnoses in the past.

Life is a series of challenges. Society reinforces quick fixes to be happy. I am realistic and believe that living the kind of life you desire is not about avoiding distress and challenges. It is about learning skills and having the right tools to function while feeling distress and facing those challenges. True growth occurs in the face of discomfort, so therapy is not always easy. I provide a safe space while you go through those times of discomfort. It is the willingness to tolerate that discomfort and when real transformation and empowerment occurs.
