I specialize in substance abuse disorders, codependency , addictions, depression, anxiety, anger, and existential issues.
Each morning when I open my eyes, I say to myself: 'I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead; tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.'" ~Groucho Marx. I decided long ago that life is too short to feel miserable or to live in fear. I have since been in recovery for over 10 years! Today, I live my life differently, and, I can tell you, it's worth it. If you're ready to join me on this journey, give me a call.

Additional special interests include addiction and codependency issues.
After many years as a nurse, a cancer diagnosis led me to change careers mid-life, and as an LCSW, I now assist others in overcoming their own life transitions and obstacles. Major life transitions, such as divorce, loss, moving, retirement, empty nest, debilitating illnesses, and trauma can cause upheaval, grief, and a tremendous amount of stress. I believe that life changes, even the difficult ones, can with intervention result in personal growth, and allow for greater self-discovery and awareness.

Therapy is about change. Many clients come because they are ready to explore how to make necessary or desired changes in their lives. Others reach out because they are experiencing change and need help navigating it. Ideally, clients come to the process open to seeing, thinking and doing things differently. People come to therapy usually because they have done everything they know how to do and they need a different perspective. Anxiety and depression are the most common issues that plague most clients, but everyone has unique ways that they handle their situation, their emotions and their relationships.

I enjoy working with clients who are committed to improving their lives. Sometimes family issues get in the way, both from the past and currently. Being stuck in traumatic memories or living in difficult circumstances makes life hard. I enjoy seeing families together to help them improve communication and to build closer relationships. Couples who invest therapy time into their relationship, report increased feelings of closeness and happiness in their lives. I am an AAMFT Approved Supervisor for MFT Interns and Associates. I enjoy helping MFT Trainees to improve their therapy skills to help others.

Addiction is one of the toughest things anyone can face. It can be overwhelming, exhausting, and lead to lifelong consequences if left untreated. However, the truth is: We DO recover, and I do mean WE. My professional knowledge comes from a masters degree in addiction psychology, and my practical experience comes from my own journey of addiction and recovery.

You may be struggling with anxiety, relationships, self esteem issues, feeling stressed or overwhelmed. My clients come to therapy because they are experiencing some or all of these challenges and are looking to feel better. Therapy can bring a different perspective to the difficulties you are experiencing and can provide you with the direction and confidence to achieve your goals, live in accordance to your values, and feel better. You are not alone and you don’t have to figure it all out by yourself. I would like to help.

The ideal client is one who is struggling through an issue and is serious about making significant improvements through hard work. I am aware that life events manifest in many, and often unexpected, ways; Sometimes, the manifestations are changes in personality, mood, relationships, employment, health, and/or the development of various dependencies. I enjoy helping people navigate the stormy seas of trauma, because once the dark skies have cleared, it is truly a joyous day!

I applaud you, the first steps in seeking help can be really tough, and you did it! I worked with a variety of clients where I saw depression, anxiety, trauma, and abandonment. Together we worked to find healthy coping skills, and ways to express our emotions healthfully. Each step you want to make, I will be right there with you. Navigating through those emotions that arise can be hard, but it can be possible. I look forward to hearing from you as you start your journey.

My main forms of therapy tend to be solution focused, cognitive behavioral therapy and person centered with a priority in making changes in behavior and thinking. However, all forms of therapy are used in my practice including but not limited to narrative, reality, mindfulness, play therapy, some art therapy, and sand tray therapy to explore all facets of the self. I will use whatever works best for you. I believe that therapy is a place to explore uncomfortable emotions, issues, and trauma, as well as explore who you are, who you have been and what you want for your future with a focus on your strengths, resilience, and balance.

The journey of life sometimes leads us down roads and paths untraveled. These new paths can be exciting or painful and scary. Perhaps you have experienced an unexpected death or loss. You or someone you love may be struggling with addiction, like substances or pornography. You may experience chronic physical pain and feel hopeless to find relief. Stress, depression, and anxiety may have surfaced unexpectedly or you have struggled with them for years. Or, you may be experiencing a life transition and hoping to grow through it. You, your children, teenagers, marriage, or family may be struggling to find harmony, peace or direction.

I see a variety of clients who present with various issues/concerns/upsets, who are in distress and need help to see them through. It can be difficult to trust someone with personal issues, but after taking that first step, my clients generally feel comfortable with me, are forthcoming, and begin to feel hopeful again. Length of treatment varies depending on needs/issues, and I see both short-term and long-term clients/patients.

Codependency Therapists

What therapy types help with codependency problems?

Both couples and family therapy and cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) can help with the relationship difficulties referred to as codependency. Such problems typically include inappropriate feelings of responsibility for a loved one’s destructive behavior, irrational patterns of thinking about such behavior, and family interaction patterns in which the needs of one troubled member override the needs of others in a household.

What happens in therapy for codependency?

Spouses and family members learn and practice how to interact and support each other in a healthy way without sacrificing their own needs or well-being. They learn the limits of their responsibility for their loved ones and correct faulty patterns of thinking and feeling that underlie codependent behavior. Individuals may be encouraged to nurture an array of social relationships and to cultivate their own talents and interests so that they develop a healthy sense of self outside the family.

How does therapy help a person or couple overcome codependency?

Therapy helps people establish healthy ways of being in a relationship. Spouses and family members learn how to nurture and support one another without sacrificing their own needs or allowing the needs of one person to dominate the dynamic. Individuals learn how to say no and set boundaries, and how to maintain their own identity and self-esteem. Therapy helps people understand that they are not responsible for the feelings and actions of others. It also helps individuals deal with the turbulence that can come from living with a person suffering from such conditions as substance abuse and mental illness.

What is the goal of therapy for codependency?

One goal of therapy for codependency is to alleviate feelings of responsibility for and correct irrational patterns of thinking about loved ones whose behavioral problems override the needs of others in a household. Therapy helps people establish healthy boundaries of behavior and speak up for their own needs in a relationship. In addition, people learn how to maintain a healthy relationship, one in which both parties give and receive equally and are able to retain their own identity.
