Life has been a whirlwind lately and we often do not know where to turn. Issues such as everyday pressures, relationships, sleep deprivation, and anxiety are all too familiar. Managing (the seemingly unmanagable) emotions, such as anger, and finding “happiness” seem to be all too common these days. You are likely navigating issues such as reaching your potential (ie. becoming a better father/parent,) recovering from substance abuse, managing your mood, making sense of/coping with painful past memories or improving your communication in relationships.

If you have tried everything to quit addictive eating and nothing seems to stick, it can be devastating. There IS hope! I have been in practice for 30 years. I specialize in helping people overcome addictive eating (compulsive overeating, bulimia, binge eating, emotional eating) and food/weight obsession. I also have extensive experience supporting people dealing with alcohol and drug addictions, codependency and family issues. I love to work with people at all levels of recovery. I use a physical, emotional and spiritual approach. Faith and spirituality is a strong part of my practice as I believe we need to change from the inside out.

In working with clients my hope has always been to work with people who are asking for help. Working with people who struggle with mood disorders, relationship struggles, and those who simply want to get to know themselves better. Whether that is addressing self-esteem, purpose, addiction, helping others gain confidence or direction, my goal has always been to give people a better sense of who they are.

Are your partner, parents or children driving you crazy? Our counselors can show you how to enjoy the best of your family while learning to let go of the parts that interfere with your happiness. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, or make the same self-defeating relationship mistakes repeatedly, we'd like to work with you to break these cycles and enjoy life. Are you a first responder or veteran? Talk therapy won't help. We provide evidence-based EMDR. You deserve a counselor with the training and experience to help resolve the problems that bring you to therapy, heal old wounds and deepen the bonds you already share.

When we manage our emotions, and learn from them, we can avoid the traps of language, thinking, and habit that inhibit healthy development, that leave us stuck. Emotions are never the problem. Instead, emotions are data- guiding us to truth and potential. Therapy is an excavation. It is a cathartic oxygenation of buried experience done by a individual with the help of a therapist. It is my goal to create a safe place for you to be willing to go through the pain we will uncover, trusting that healing is waiting for you on the other side.

Need help adjusting to a life change? Choosing to seek help through psychotherapy is a positive and resourceful step toward having the life and relationships you desire. In my 20 years of practice I have had the privilege of partnering with parents who face the challenge of addressing at-risk behavior in their teen and young adult, the parents who have lost their child to substance abuse or suicide, the couples who find ways to reconnect, address intimacy issues and co-parent effectively, the college student who needs support, the teen who feels overwhelmed and the adult who experiences anxiety and depression.

In practice for over 15 years, I work with a wide range of people who may be experiencing anxiety, low mood, and stress. In particular, many people come into my office because they have found an aspect of their life is not rewarding, whether this be handling life's pressures, relationships with a spouse/children, or how one thinks about one's self. It is always my objective to work with people collaboratively in order to develop goals that guide the psychotherapy.

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.
