After 20+ years as a practicing clinical social worker, primarily in the field of addictions, I have assisted many to gain insight into their lives and beliefs, allowing them to make changes for a more meaningful life. While much of my practice was in the field of addictions, it allowed me to gain experience with clients working on a variety of other concerns such as: relationship issues, abuse/trauma, depression, anxiety and grief, to name a few.

Has there ever been a time where you felt alone or that something wasn't working? Maybe you have tried to cope with these feelings or maybe you do not know where to start. I believe that these thoughts and feelings can be changed once we change the mindset. No matter what stage of life a client is in, my goal is for each client to feel accepted and supported. I desire for each client to recognize their strengths and utilize them to help grow through these difficult times. I can help to resolve conflicts, recognize strengths, increase confidence and communication skills.

Accepting New Clients. Hello, I am Stacy - I understand the challenges you face in your recovery process. There may be times when you're feeling like you are doing great and do not need any support, and suddenly life happens, or you are trying to stay sober but somehow keep falling back into old patterns. Whether you are in early recovery or abstinent for some time, we all face vulnerability because recovery is a process. I am committed to supporting you through this process. Recovery is possible, and you deserve to live a life free of the burden of addiction.

Reaching out for help can be an overwhelming process that requires you to be courageous and vulnerable. When you are feeling sad, disconnected, hopeless, and uncomfortable in your own skin, the obstacles you face may seem hard to overcome. You have now taken the first step towards wellness and it is no longer out of your reach. I am glad you are here, especially if you may be feeling stressed and trapped in a world that just does not understand.

Going through any change in life is a challenge. It is perfectly normal to have feelings of doubt, uncertainty, and ambivalence. I truly believe that people are the expert on themselves. This allows me the opportunity to learn about each individual's unique experiences and provide an objective perspective. In doing this, it is my goal to assist each person in exploring different future options to help them achieve their best self. My promise to my clients is that I walk alongside them to offer support while making those changes. Ultimately, my hope is to make myself obsolete so that you become your own therapist.

Einstein wrote, "To do the same things and expect different results is insanity". Making change is not always easy. I can help you through this difficult process. My years of experience have equipped me with the knowledge and resources to assist you in this sometimes painful process. This is done in a nurturing and supportive environment that assists you to discover that path that best suits you. I will ask not for your trust based of my education and training. What I ask is for the opportunity to earn your trust because I care and I want to make a difference in your life.

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.
