Why are so many of us afraid to face challenges? Fear is what holds us hostage in our own minds. The most interesting part about fear is that It does not exist outside of us. We create it. That which we create we can also destroy. I work with individuals who have issues with alcohol, substance use and COPSD (Co-occurring Psychiatric Substance Use Disorder). I coached adolescents for over a decade and I find satisfaction in working with challenging circumstances. I thoroughly enjoy connecting with young and old adults to awaken their potential. Lets go on a journey of discovering the truth of who you are meant to be.

If you or someone you love are having problems related to alcohol or drug use, there is hope and a way out. It is most useful to meet with someone who truly understands addiction and can provide a true assessment. I will work with you, your family and any other healthcare providers to develop a plan of action based on your needs. Often times the road to recovery starts with meeting someone who listens to understand, meets you with genuine care and concern and can provide useful recommendations. Chemical dependency is a primary illness not a secondary mental health issue; trust a counselor who entered this specialty field.

I work best with clients seeking to define and engage with the issues that are hindering their ability to function well, be happy and healthy. I am a direct, but not a directive therapist. I believe that given the strategies and tools to navigate through difficult situations most people are capable of doing what is needed to live life to the fullest. That includes one of my favorite populations, teenagers. I also enjoy treating patients, persons who will likely be managing a psychiatric condition throughout their lifetime with a combination of medical management and psychotherapy.

Welcome! I am here to help. Life can be very challenging. It can be full of hurt, misunderstanding, betrayal and loss. But it can also be full of hope, healing, growth and joy. I believe that every difficulty in our lives brings with it the opportunity to grow stronger and find the fulfillment we all long for. Overcoming and flourishing are possible, regardless of circumstances around us. As a professional counselor, I have walked alongside people on their journeys to healing and wholeness since 1981. I have seen the triumph and beauty in the human spirit as it heals from trauma and loss and is restored to vibrancy.

Life can be hard. Whether it is transitioning from one phase of life to another or financial and work stressors there is always something that we have to learn to cope with and it can be very easy to start feeling overwhelmed and stuck. I believe every experience in life has a purpose. Nothing happens by chance. Failure, conflict or ending a relationship isn't meant to break us but to provide valuable lessons for us to learn, grow, gain insight, become stronger and live happier. I can support and guide you in your search for inner strength needed to regain your sense of control, purpose and joy.

I specialize in women's issues, substance and alcohol use issues, & navigating emotional disturbances in order to find peace.
Availability M-F 9am-2pm, I am also willing to accommodate some evening appointments upon request. Hello & welcome! I believe that we should prioritize our mental health just as much as we do for our physical health. It is very easy to keep trudging along without taking the time to feel our feelings or process our emotions. In therapy, I provide a non-judgmental space to explore past and present feelings and situations. Therapy is not one size fits all and it’s important to find skills and techniques that will help you reach your individual goals. I approach therapy with warmth, compassion, authenticity, and my own lived experience.

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.
