I specialize in alcohol and other drug-related issues, including addiction, alcohol use, substance use disorders, drug and alcohol problems, treatment trauma, peer support, recovery, co-occurring mental health disorders, and harm reduction.
Alcohol and drug problems can be complicated, but seeking help doesn't have to be. You don't need to "hit rock bottom" to make a change. With a passion for aiding individuals in recovery, those grappling with addiction, and those navigating alcohol or substance use, I have expertise in therapy for alcohol and other drug use, harm reduction, and recovery. You might hate AA and be looking to moderate your alcohol intake, or you might be in long-term recovery but struggling to live "life on life's terms." Whatever your difficulty, I am much more openminded than your typical drug or alcohol counselor.

Substance use affects most areas of one’s life that can include educational, vocational, mental health, family and other relationships. Deciding on what path to take can be a daunting task and the early recovery process can be a very challenging time. I provide therapy for individuals, couples, and family members struggling with behavioral, emotional, or relational issues of any kind (not limitited to substance use) or for someone who just wants a safe space to process the week's events. Facilitating change may require a variety of approaches to fit the individual(s) and their current situation.

Alcohol Use Therapists

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

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

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 alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
