"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." - Victor Frankl. To me, to be human is to experience loneliness, fear, doubt, death, loss, and other emotions. When you are "stuck" in your feelings, experiencing hopelessness, helplessness, sadness, or feeling overwhelmed, talking with others opens new opportunities and allows for a different perspective. I am here because I am passionate about this process. I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere to do this work. I hope to work, think, and feel with you as we explore these challenges together.

As an experienced addiction therapist, I support individuals recovering from drug and alcohol issues, gambling addictions, and other behavioral issues. I provide a safe space where you can explore and understand the suffering you endured. This understanding leads to the development of self compassion and movement toward happiness. Clients find me easy to relate to, genuine, supportive, non-judgmental, safe, containing, and resourceful. Having gone through my own addiction, I know first hand the wreckage, guilt, and shame associated with that nightmarish way of living.

The benefit of therapy is that one can gain self-understanding, as well as a better understanding of other people. When a person tends to view the world from a negative perspective, without being aware of the source of these negative views, a belief begins to grow that the world and the components of daily-life experiences are negative. The same can be said for events that provoke anxiety, as well as for individual experiences of trauma. Holding these types of thoughts without processing them tends to skew our views on reality and lead to errors in thinking, such as generalizations about how the world should be.

It may very well be that our deepest longing and need is for connection. To be heard and understood. To be known in places where many others are never allowed. To be more connected to the lost neglected parts of ourselves and those we care about. You have this opportunity in the safety of psychotherapy. It isn't always an easy road. Perhaps this sounds intimidating. Often it entails letting go of destructive habits or getting unstuck. We may need to look at old patterns and create new ones. There may be moments of laughing, crying, or facing hard truths.

Live your truth. Follow your bliss. Do you. Sounds simple, right? Except that, all too often, we convince ourselves that who we are is not enough, that what we want is undeserved. So we stifle our talents, ignore our truth and deny our deepest desires. Before we know it, we’re living someone else’s life, satisfying everyone’s expectations but our own. All to earn the love and acceptance we don’t feel worthy of otherwise. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

I believe that there is nothing inherently "wrong" with you; the fact that you can be going through a difficult or uncertain time and still show up to work or school (or even to breakfast, some days) is, to me, proof of the fact that you are coping. But if you're not comfortable with the way you're coping right now, know that this doesn't have to be set in stone. If there are changes you want to make to how you understand yourself, relate to others, or navigate your world, we can work through those together.
