I have experience using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with individuals recovering from substance use and enjoy incorporating mindfulness techniques to help you learn new ways to relax your mind and body and ultimately reduce stress.
As a Clinical Social Worker, my focus in therapy lies in creating a safe and supportive environment that allows you the opportunity for exploration, healing and growth. I believe in creating an alliance and taking a person-centered approach to treating your mental health concerns. I’m here to help create dialogue about issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, relationships, and work-related stress. Through this dialogue I want to help you improve your mind-body connection, develop coping skills that will strengthen your emotional regulation, and reduce uncomfortable psychiatric symptoms.

Psychotherapy offers a way to identify one’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors that result from life's naturally occurring challenges. This collaborative work encourages self-awareness and development of new ways of being. While I work with people seeking therapy for a variety of reasons, my specialties include mood disorders, relationship issues, and chronic illness/pain disorders. I integrate motivational, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based approaches to help each person meet their goals. I also utilize a harm reduction framework to help individuals explore their substance use and identify opportunities for change.

I specialize in drug and alcohol abuse, with 10+ years providing individual and group therapy for people trying to reduce, moderate or stop their substance use.
Change is possible. You CAN feel better. You may be skeptical that what you're struggling with can be helped, blaming and judging yourself instead. You may be frustrated by many attempts to make things better without helping. A part of you may want to avoid looking at what is happening straight on for fear it could make things worse. These fears are normal. With kindness, curiosity, and a helpful framework, we can address these concerns while also allowing you to get the help you need.

We often lose ourselves in an attempt to fulfill those everyday life roles. You know the roles we play everyday as parents, partner, child, employee, and friend? When do we ever take the time to truly put ourselves!?! Unfortunately, most of us fail to ever do so, but this has to stop and the time is now! You matter! Your goals matter! If you are not good to yourself, how can you ever be any good to someone else! I have experience working with a variety of populations such as those experiencing severe persistent mental illness, substance use, anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, LGBTQ issues, relationships issues and much more.

I work with individuals, couples and families confronting issues of depression, anxiety, stress, relationship problems, loss, parenting issues, aging, trauma and alcohol/substance use.
Life experiences can bring pain and conflict resulting in depression, anxiety and coping with substances. I frequently hear the expression of loneliness, emptiness and feeling unfulfilled in people's lives and the sadness, disappointment and anger over relationships with themselves, partners, family and friends that fail to satisfy those needs. Experience has taught me that feeling heard and understood generates a sense of hope and stimulates movement toward insight through exploration and examination of one's inner life. Psychodynamic psychotherapy offers the framework and space for this work, leading to corrective emotional experiences and a more satisfying life and relationships.

Substance Use Therapists

How do substance and drug recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other clients in recovery; in outpatient programs, individuals reside at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff often also includes people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other methods.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for substance use reduce the amount of drugs they consume. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.

Are there specific medications for substance and drug use?

There are medications approved to treat substance use disorder—such as buprenorphine, methadone, naltrexone, and acamprosate. These medications do help people cope with substance use as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone can help reduce cravings, methadone is an opioid medication used to treat severe pain, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.
