and have conducted about 2000 substance use evaluations for local courts and attorneys.
I work with individuals, adolescents and adults, who want or need to find their own path to inner peace and harmony without the use of alcohol or drugs, or the use of rage or isolation, or the creation of chaos as a distraction; people who wrestle with the parts of themselves that keep getting in their way. I also work with families who are confused how to help a loved one who is abusing alcohol and other drugs.

Working with diverse communities in the Rivertowns, women, couples, students and people of all ages are my specialties. I believe in a warm, compassionate and professional approach to counseling where client and counselor are able to work together. Assessing the strengths of each individual, and helping that person achieve their life goals despite the many obstacles in their way, or the losses they may be suffering is what I strive for as a therapist. As Carl Rogers says best "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."

My role as a therapist is not to provide answers, but to help guide you towards your own solutions. I believe I have a down to earth personality with a clinically-appropriate sense of humor. I have helped clients suffering from grief and loss, substance abuse and anxiety-related issues. The loss of someone we love is one of the hardest things we encounter in our lives, in my opinion. How people experience grief and loss is different for everyone. There is no right or wrong. Having a safe place to talk about this experience doesn't make the hurt go away, but it does help with moving forward.

Growth and change are possible. People are constantly changing, but those changes can be difficult to notice or appreciate. Our best selves are present, here and now. Working collaboratively, we can identify obstacles that block potential and limit happiness. Problems with mood and our relationships impact our feelings of worth, confidence, and motivation. If you feel unsatisfied, experience frustrating relationships or spend too much time worrying, there is hope.

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.
