I am a licensed Dual diagnosis therapist who has over 12 years of experience in treating individuals ages 11-65 suffering from past, present, or a loved one's issues of addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders such as substance Abuse, Sexual Addiction, Gambling, Depression, PTSD, ADHD, and Anxiety. I operate using a strengths based framework, and strive to help clients achieve self love. My clients find that they greatly increase practical coping skills and are better able to understand and manage triggers. I work to create an environment, free of judgement or shame, and am affirming of all humans and experiences.
I believe that therapy is a vital part of emotional well-being and personal growth. My evidence based practice combines person-centered therapy, DBT/CBT, life coaching, and mindfulness. I operate using a practical, and relaxed approach to address the individual as a whole, and strive to be a catalyst for the development of one's true potential.
I see the therapeutic relationship as an equal partnership and we will collaborate often. My goal for each session is for clients feel relaxed, productive and truly heard. My clients tell me that I am down to earth, warm, and easy to talk to. Ultimately, I strive to help others to build the tools necessary to lead a happier, healthier and productive life.
