About

In my practice, I attempt to address suffering: what makes us suffer, how we suffer, and how suffering can be alleviated. I enjoy working with clients who are struggling with life issues and are not afraid to take on the suffering consciously, with my support, in order to transform their lives. I specialize in the treatment of addictions of all kinds, but primarily chemical, co-dependency, sex and romance, and gambling. I also specialize in the treatment of trauma/PTSD, both from current life situations and from childhood experiences.
I work primarily in two modalities: one, using a mindfulness-based way that focuses on assisting the client to notice what is happening to them emotionally in each moment and two, an in-depth approach to "dig deeper" into the client's psyche in order to arrive a deeper understanding of one's self.
I am receiving advanced training at the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco in depth psychology. I also work extensively with persons suffering with addictions, as well as with their partners and families. I also work with trauma and the lasting effects of trauma/PTSD.

More about this group

Co-existing Disorders Support Group

This group is for persons diagnosed with co-occuring disorders, primarily some forms of psychiatric and substance abuse problems ("dual-diagnosed'). In this group, members will learn a variety of valuable tools they can use in the maintenance of their recovery. Members should have some "clean time" already and be actively engaged in an outside recovery-based program, as well.
