"Are you concerned about your substance use and thinking about making a change? I can help you. Whether you would like to stop using substance, moderate them, or just cut down – I understand what you’re going through. You feel fear and anxiety, try to stop or cut down and go right back to your normal use just like you are on auto-pilot. You’re not weak, you’re just losing the battle against power chemical reactions in your brain. Let me help break free from this cycle. I'll personalize your counseling to be as effective for you as possible, not a "one-size fits all" approach. You'll learn new tools and coping skills."

"**I have availability for self-pay clients. I am not accepting new insurance clients at this time.** I hope this space can help you begin to answer whether we might work well together. Being warm, caring, empathetic, and helpful is a core part of being a therapist, so I won't emphasize those qualities here. In terms of my more unique clinical facets, I endeavor to be nonjudgmental even when not neutral. I'm high energy, whimsical, and mirthful in the counseling room. I am also skilled at verbally describing internal decision-making and emotional processes and have excellent pattern recognition and analytical skills."

"Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might find ourselves wondering if our therapist will "get" what it's like to be us. I believe each person, couple, and family brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, often influenced by various cultural factors. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including race, ethnicity, and gender. Maybe you are in a cross-cultural relationship and want help navigating tricky topics productively. It could be your family is in conflict around generational differences and opposing values."
