Please Note: I am now accepting Husky/Medicaid!

By creating an integrated model, drawn from multiple recovery communities and orientations, I am in the unique position to provide support and planning for individuals transitioning through the recovery process. By individually tailoring your therapeutic work and maintaining consistent contact, I can assist you in creating a healthy ability to independently navigate through the wide range of all of your daily living activities.

Making the decision to seek help is not always an easy one. Following through can be even harder. Am I making the right choice? Can I trust this person? How can they possibly help me? If you are asking yourself these questions – know that you are not alone. Maybe you are going through a life transition. Maybe you are struggling with depressive or anxious symptoms. Maybe you are grieving. Maybe you are struggling with addiction or someone you love is struggling with addiction issues. Often times we just don't know what the issue is other than something doesn't feel right and I just don't know what to do or where to turn.

The clients I work with are often dealing with major life transitions in their childhood or adolescence. Life transitions can lead to anxiety, depression and/or acting out behaviors. Additionally, my clients often have underlying anxiety and or mood disorders that make these transitions increasingly difficult. Clients dealing with these issues are often looking for someone to listen to, and understand them. One of the most important steps when helping others is providing a safe space for clients to be heard, understood and validated.

Does this sound familiar?: You've lost touch with the hopes and dreams that used to motivate and inspire you. An important relationship is in trouble: your relationship with your spouse, partner, child, or family is a repeated source of pain. You received feedback that you don’t seem yourself lately or that your behavior is alarming to those who care about you. The responsiveness of a therapist can help us acknowledge the deep urging and longings of our truer selves. Therapy can be a place where we chart a new course for our lives. “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” --Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
