The impact that a life-changing diagnosis can have on individuals and their families can be profound. It can feel like a betrayal when our bodies don’t allow us to live our lives the way we expect, impacting our relationships, careers, and hopes. How can we move forward in life when it feels like our bodies are holding us back? How do we grieve our hopes and dreams while trying to fully understand how they are affected by our new circumstances? How do we do all of this while trying to navigate a medical system that often leaves us feeling unheard and unseen?

"Change" is an inevitable part of life! Although it can result in new and exciting opportunities unfortunately, it can often create painful and unmanageable symptoms when we consider the "losses", transition and possible grief associated with it. Loss of relationships, marriage, family, loved ones, jobs, health, confidence, etc., can easily translate into anxiety, depression, confusion and doubt. As an empathetic, versatile and understanding therapist for over 30 years, I have been instrumental in changing individual and couples lives and futures by providing coping tools, strategies, and promoting resiliency with supportive and empowering approaches that the navigation of these challenges require.

Life can be very challenging and demanding at times and can often leave us feeling confused, lonely, depressed, and anxious. I believe that addressing our mental health and emotional well being is as important as taking care of our physical health.

Depression, and anxiety are often the least talked about items in an immigrant household. Misconception and the stigma of mental illness run rampant in the household as generational trauma cycles into everyone’s life as people start turning to the substances to learn to cope. Some people go through their lives thinking that their anxiety will never get better or they can't change. It takes one step to break the cycle but with that step starts a journey of rediscovering yourself where many different roads will appear. It will be an honor to be your tour guide in the beginning parts of your journey.

With a trauma informed approach, I work to develop a therapeutic relationship built on mutual trust, respect, and understanding. You’ve been yourself your whole life and you probably know what works for you and what doesn’t. I want therapy to be something that works for you. I know that for some of you that will require an anti-oppression practice that is identity affirming and empowering for whoever you are and whoever you might become and I am committed to that practice.

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.
