I specialize in treating individuals of all ages with mental health and substance use disorders.
Do you ever feel like you just can’t win? Life throws curveballs, generally at the most inconvenient times, that would be difficult for anyone to navigate. Maybe it leads to conflict with your loved ones. Maybe you don’t know how to cope so you resort to alcohol or drugs. Maybe you feel like you don’t have a voice or like your voice doesn’t matter. Maybe you struggle to get out of bed because you can’t find motivation to make it through the day. Maybe you can’t focus because you're too busy creating worst-case scenarios in your head or you're stuck in the past. Maybe you’re just trying to figure out who you are, and that’s okay.

I specialized in depression, anxiety, substance use, and other stressors.
Life is full of transitions. Experiencing growth and difficult times can be incredibly heavy and isolating. Imagine what life would look life if you prioritized your mental health. Ask yourself these questions: are you feeling like your days are harder than what you’re able to handle? Are you going through relationship, work, family, or personal tribulations? Are you feeling like the negative thoughts are taking control? Does self esteem, grief, or substance use play a part?

One of my greatest passions involves helping people through various transitions of life. I offer therapy in the area of Grief, Loss, Substance Use Disorders, Trauma, Behavioral Addictions, and Spiritual Direction. I believe our mental health is intricately connected to our emotional and spiritual well-being. There are times we find ourselves choosing unhealthy coping tools to redirect self-defeating, self-loathing, and self-sabotaging thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Through a multi-disciplined approach I'll help you identify those negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and reconnect to the emotions you've grown numb to.

I have ten years of experience counseling in several capacities - but not limited to - substance use, individuals with disabilities, adults coping with major life changes, and those who have experienced trauma.
“Why should the world be over-wise, in counting all our tears and sighs? Nay, let them only see us, while we wear the mask.” - Paul Laurence Dunbar This is an excerpt from one of my favorite poems, “We Wear the Mask.” The poem best describes how most of us navigate this world while carrying around masked depression, anxiety, trauma, guilt, and even addiction. Although putting on a “game face” is how we function to survive, sometimes that harms us more than protects us. As a therapist, I can help you safely remove that mask and take steps to improve your mental wellness.

Substance Use Therapists

How do substance and drug recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other clients in recovery; in outpatient programs, individuals reside at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff often also includes people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other methods.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for substance use reduce the amount of drugs they consume. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.

Are there specific medications for substance and drug use?

There are medications approved to treat substance use disorder—such as buprenorphine, methadone, naltrexone, and acamprosate. These medications do help people cope with substance use as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone can help reduce cravings, methadone is an opioid medication used to treat severe pain, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.
