"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 will interrupt you a lot, that is what meditation does. It interrupts our stories about ourselves and the world around us. I will also listen to you, deeply. That is another way meditation helps, we learn to listen to ourselves deeply. The word akrasia means 'out of control' and is used to describe the way we continue to do things that we know is not in our best interest, or don't do things that we know are in our best interest. Most people feel relief just to know there is word for it. The cause of akrasia is said to be a lack of information and meditation gives us access to the information we need to change. "
