I have nearly 18 years of experience working in substance use treatment and in providing mental health services.
The focus of my practice has always been on providing mental health support to adolescents, young adults, and their families. Many of my clients are working to build healthy behaviors, to improve their ability to communicate and to begin building healthier lives. If you are considering seeking mental health treatment for your teen, who may be struggling with mental health issues, addiction, or identity, I believe that I may be of service to you and your family.

There are times in our lives when we all struggle with fear and pain of one kind or another. Contacting a therapist can be fear-provoking in and of itself. Whether we are struggling with acute trauma or simply feeling challenged by facets of everyday life, we all occasionally long for empathy and guidance. Loss, depression/anxiety, addiction, even normal life transitional issues can leave us feeling powerless, frightened and lonely. Often we hesitate to share these feelings with friends or loved ones for fear of being a burden or worse, being judged.

Many are unsure if they have an addiction, or if they really are an alcoholic. Sometimes you drink too much, have regrets the next day, feel embarrassed about losing control and worry about your health. Drinking and using to numb the pain leaves you feeling very alone. You are sick of hiding, of keeping secrets. Should you stop altogether or figure out how to moderate? I can help this exploration in a non-judgmental way to find answers. Many people in recovery are often disappointed their ‘problems’ are not fixed; they feel stuck, depressed and anxious and relationship challenges persist.

Training in Emotionally Focused Therapy has helped me tremendously in working with couples and individuals. I enjoy couples counseling, helping partners to see their trauma in the marriage. Teaching couples about their negative cycle and how to work through their pain. I believe that trauma is the root of our issues and why we use our dysfunction in dealing with life. Depression, anxiety, addiction can all be linked back to childhood traumas or other life traumatic events. I also work with individuals as well as teenagers.
