Isn't it frustrating to be confronted with life issues that can cause hardship and emotional pain. That despite your best efforts a more desirable outcome seems illusive. Sometimes, we all need a helping hand to identify and initiate more effective life strategies. I can help you promote desirable changes with either long standing personal issues or more acute ones that have been brought on by circumstances or unfortunate life events. No matter what the situation, the opportunity for positive change is always present.

Hello and welcome. For almost 30 years I have helped tweens, teens and adults negotiate their world. At times people can feel worried, frustrated and overwhelmed about their life, work, and relationships. We all have been there. It takes courage to find the guidance for getting out of a bad spot, feeling less stressed out, and just trying to live a better life. I have helped many people at different stages in life, with different situations. Let me help you and yours reduce negative life stressors, find some relief, and create a life worth living.

Are you exhausted by having the same struggles with your child or spouse day after day with no relief in sight? We often repeat similar patterns from our family of origin or conversely do the opposite. Either way we are stuck in a preordained negative cycle that we can not navigate alone. I have twenty five years of experience and training helping families change their communication patterns n a short term systemic model. These behaviors can actually perpetuate the very problems you are trying to solve!

My practice is gentle and focused on supporting you in helping yourself. I offer supportive counseling and empowerment by promoting self-help and self-compassion. I do not diagnose or label unless it is useful in an educational way . Instead, I am more concerned with what is happening in the here-and-now, what happened before, and in helping you figure out "what now?". Maybe you feel stuck and unsure how to navigate a life transition or adjustment. I work with individuals and families on healing the ripple effects of trauma, addiction, codependency, and grief.

It can be hard to recognize when you need to turn to someone for help. Sometimes having a trusted person outside your family & friends can offer the clarity and support you need during a difficult transition. I give my clients a safe space to talk where they can identify obstacles and work to become more hopeful, empowered and grounded in their lives. By exploring your thoughts & feelings, we will be able to move you forward and help you to find the support you need.

My background and experience are quite varied, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and neuropsychological perspectives. This allows me to approach each situation with a unique focus on the need of the individual or individuals involved, and to provide treatment tailored to those needs (rather than to narrow conceptualization on my part of what psychotherapy 'is'). I also frequently draw upon the practice of meditation in helping people cope with anxiety, depression, learning issues, impulsivity, addiction, and so on. My commitment is to helping people gain both self-understanding and the ability to make substantive changes in behavior.

Choosing a psychotherapist, relationship counselor, or coach is an important decision. Most importantly, you want someone who will not only understand you but can help you overcome your pain and stuckness and become your best self. I spend a great deal of time in the beginning learning about who you are and I then tailor my treatment to your specific needs. I don't just listen - my treatment is very interactive and you will gain deep insight into yourself and acquire tools to grow and change. My mission is to liberate the human spirit one person at a time.

I have extensive experience treating trauma sequelas, dissociative disorders and helping individuals overcome grief. My practice also includes treatment of eating disorders in adults (e.g., bulimia) and parasuicidal behaviour.

Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to gain a deeper sense of fulfillment in your life. By exploring and understanding your feelings, thoughts and behaviors you will begin to develop more self-awareness and self-acceptance. It is quite rewarding to better understand the many complicated and self-sabotaging part of yourself and gain more control over those behaviors. Developing insight allows you to have a greater understanding of who you are and the life choices you have made. Insight and self-awareness give you more freedom to make healthier choices and change unsatisfied areas of your life.

Many of us enter therapy feeling lost. Starting this journey-lost in the forest of feelings, pain, or trauma-can be so daunting. But this is likely one of the bravest things you'll ever do. And you shouldn't have to wander this forest alone. As your therapist, I'll walk beside you each step of the way, as your equal, your guide, and your support through the journey to healing.

Life can be tough. Not having anyone to talk to about your struggles can make it tougher. It takes a lot of courage to seek support. If you are looking for a therapist you have taken the first step in trying to make your life better. Bravo! My specialty is in treating pandemic fatigue, anxiety, panic disorders, phobias, PTSD, depression, grief and substance abuse (including treatments not limited to 12 step programs). Are you struggling with any of these? I may be able to help! I also have extensive experience in profession related PTSD (firefighters, police, EMS, First Responders). I enjoy working with adults over 18 years old.

Alcohol Use Therapists

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

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

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 alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
