"For 25 years, I have assisted people with a variety of addictions, from the exogenous abuse of drugs and alcohol, to the ones that stem from the chemicals already inside the brain, such as sex and love addiction, abandonment patterns, sexual compulsions, gambling, internet, and workaholism. Unlike most psychotherapists, I’m a Board Certified Addiction Specialist, well versed in both abstinence and harm reduction strategies. Unlike most addiction professionals, I am also psychotherapist who also treats the anxiety, depression, and other psychological issues that often manifest after being uncovered through recovery."

"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. "

"It's a courageous step to seek help. Things aren't working and perhaps you are looking for a new way, new strategies and perspective. You need relief from this angst. The surprise here is that your pain, frustration or relationship conflict can also be an asset. I am not suggesting minimizing your emotional suffering nor the importance of us finding immediate relief. I am suggesting that in facing your difficulties we can move towards enduring change. How does change happen in therapy? In my work with clients we identify some of the stories you have been telling yourself."

"My greatest joy in life is to witness change. One thing I have learned in my work as a therapist is that nothing too painful, challenging, or threatening is beyond the reach of transformation. Pain comes in many forms: anxiety, grief, trauma, depression, and addiction to name a few. As a therapist, I aim to serve as a catalyst of change, allowing my clients to move forward in life, past the struggles of the past and present that continue to hold so many of us down."

"I employ compassion, creativity, humility, and humor in working with individuals, couples, families, law enforcement and military men and women, especially those who are in transition into new beginnings and stages-of-life. I view the individual as separate from their situation and condition - such as disabilities, medical/chronic conditions, substance use, anger, depression, anxiety, or involvement in the criminal justice system - and are capable of change. The journey in therapy can unearth underlying pain in a safe place with a vested partner such as myself. I believe that the therapeutic relationship helps clients to heal."
