Chances are you or a family member is affected by addiction. It is a heartbreaking disease but there is A WAY OUT! I use a person-centered, individual, holistic approach to addiction treatment and education for individuals and family members. I employ clinically proven strategies to recovery. I successfully treated addicted clients and supported and educated family members for over twenty years. I would be honored to walk with you on your road to a newly found life! I treat men and women 17 years and older. Feel free to call. I'm happy to speak with you.
I also treat individuals affected by co-occurring diseases. That is, someone who suffers from addiction disease while at the same time suffers from an additional mental health issue or disorder.
Family members are affected (sometimes traumatically so) by the addicted individuals' behaviors. I assist family members coping with the devastating effects of the addiction of a loved one (co-dependence). Respect for the dignity of each individual and compassion are hallmarks of my practice. I am available for family meetings and group presentations.
