I help individuals cope with their Addiction and Co-Occurring Disorders by using an eclectic array of theories. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is extremely affective in treating addiction, but I use whatever techniques are required to help individuals overcome their addiction and face the underlying issues that are being medicated by their behaviors.

I’m a LCSW with many years of experience working with adolescents, families, and young adults. I believe that we all are powerful and resilient beyond measure, but sometimes find ourselves caught in patterns that no longer serve us. The teen years are a time of inquiry and creation, but also a time of confusion, fear, and angst. I find delight in walking this part of their journey with them as they navigate their way into adulthood. I believe that one’s experience in therapy is most impacted by the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client. To be seen and heard is the greatest gift we can give to another.

My intention is to help people "heal", not just "deal". I use talk therapy and experiential techniques such as Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, and mindfulness practices.
