People come to therapy for a variety of issues, including struggles with transitions, substance abuse, PTSD, anxiety, depression, marriage conflict and challenges at work or school. The first step is to work together to establish what your goals are for therapy. My own life experiences have provided me with a greater ability and understanding of demonstrating unconditional positive regard passionately. Working together treating, educating and encouraging you to break free from the chains of addiction, and prosper into a healthy fulfilling life. Over the past 10 years, I’ve helped people become more successful in all areas of life.
I will assist you in overcoming your barriers, establish good life habits, as well as actualizing your full potential. I will customize your treatment plan to meet your recovery goals. I use eclectic therapy methods, including CBT, Solution Focused and Narrative therapy to address the triggers and cravings. I continue daily to empower hope.
I am Licensed in Connecticut with 10 years of experience in the mental health & substance abuse field specializing in working with individuals suffering from addiction, depression, anxiety, chronic mental health disorders and legal issues. I am accepting new clients to be seen in the Waterbury office with evening & afternoon appointments, Saturdays & Su too.
