I have a specialization working with couples, families and individuals as well as in substance abuse/chemical dependency and addiction treatment (porn, sex & gambling). In many cases the depressed and anxious client is self medicating in some way to alter underlying feelings of depression, anxiety and intimacy/attachment issues. I use Somatic Experiencing, a very effective treatment for trauma/PTSD symptoms, helping the body and mind regulate itself. Clients in relationships with loved ones addicted or abusing substances can benefit from therapy to learn how to take care of themselves so as to limit the toxicity of proximity

Seeking professional help for yourself, your child or your family takes courage. Not only are we taught that we shouldn't need help or tell strangers our business, but it’s hard to imagine what we’ll be like if we change our old habits. Many of the adults who have made progress working with me have experienced trauma, the impacts of oppressive social biases, or both. They have adapted and survived, but they are not thriving. They may feel stuck, or they feel the need to hide or silence parts of themselves to succeed in relationships. Younger clients may have similar issues along with defiance, withdrawal or other troubling behavior.

My moniker is that, "Shift Happens." Life is often out of our control. We cannot orchestrate all the changes around us so how do we continue to ride the tide? We are all facing tremendous change be it in our family, our jobs, the economy which dictates so much of our lives. Technology has us in its' grip and that alters the way we interact on a daily basis. Shift Happens! It's a fact, so my approach is to teach people how to re-invent, re-brand, re-identify realistic goals to fit in with the changing world. This affects how individuals interact with their families, their workplace, search for work, combat their self-esteem issues.

Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

Choosing a therapist is often an overwhelming ordeal. How do you know who to choose? What can you expect from this experience? Being vulnerable emotionally often feels intimidating. At the root of it, regardless of their individual issues, most people are simply struggling to be themselves. The human condition yearns for authenticity.... to be the best we can be, to be known and accepted, especially by one's self. I provide a use of humor and a non-judgmental yet reality based environment where authenticity can be safely built at your own pace. You will then be able to realize the path that is best for you.

I believe we are all wired for connection, and, whether extraverted or introverted, rejection and isolation are incredibly painful experiences. Our brains and bodies are built in such a way that protects us from threat and harm. While these protection instincts are necessary and helpful in the midst of threat, sometimes they can keep us from the connection we truly crave and need. If you're finding that your protectors are keeping you from relating with yourself, others, and the world around you, the counseling setting can be a safe place for practicing transformational skills to break free from the unhealthy, unhelpful habits.
