"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."
