"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."

"Many of us enter adulthood with beliefs about love influenced by Hollywood depictions of romance. If we're fortunate, we've had more nuanced and realistic models, examples from adults who've shown us what it means to commit to another person and what love through a real lens looks like up close. The luckiest of us we saw the deepening and mellowing of love over time, love between people who have weathered conflicts, learned from the challenges they faced and and grown together. If so, we are likely to reach our adult years understanding what loves both asks of us and offers in reward. "

"Are you struggling to find peace, happiness, greater satisfaction, and healthier relationships? Do you continue to feel empty, angry, sad, or anxious? Do you feel as if you have little control over what happens in your life? Self-knowledge is the key to understanding why you continue to struggle and how you can change this continuous negative cycle into a positive one. Through the process of psychotherapy you will discover how your internal world interprets and affects your external world and how these mechanisms were developed. I can help you gain the insight and self knowledge necessary for positive, lasting change."

"We are all born whole, in lovingkind perfection. But life produces obstacles that sidetrack our becoming ourselves. Obstacles take any forms: trauma in the body, inauthentic identities, existential fears, beliefs indoctrinated but in conflict with one's essential values, or anxiety that something is wrong with oneself. The result can be alienation, grief, substance use issues, depression, anxiety, difficulty connecting, or incapacity to speak or create from the heart. Reconnecting with ones body, the natural world, and with an unconditional community are the foundations re-emerging into the Self you've always been. "
