About

I know all too well what it's like to be living half a life, with substance use, various co-occurring mental health disorders, and life circumstances getting in the way of having healthy relationships, a stable career, and developing a sense of fulfillment and confidence in yourself. My goal is to help you achieve your life goals by identifying, understanding, and accepting your major obstacles in new ways, and using your unique strengths to work with them instead of against them to make them less daunting. I believe that you can solve any problem you're facing and my job is to help you get to a place where you can believe it too!
I have extensive experience/education in treating substance use and mental health disorders and am a certified addiction specialist. I use a person-centered, psychodynamic approach, borrowing techniques from motivational interviewing, CBT, DBT, narrative and reality therapy, case management, and life coaching to tailor myself to individual needs/preferences.
Like Spider-Man's Uncle Ben said, "With great power comes great responsibility." Counseling has helped me claim power over my own life and I believe that makes it my responsibility to help others claim their own power. You're stronger than you know and I want to help you realize that for yourself.
