I work with couples, families, and individuals (teens, kids, and adults). Do you want to experience things like growth, change, and healing? Are you experiencing grief, trauma (PTSD), addiction, anxiety, depression, or psychosis? Do you take medication, but it feels like something is missing or off? Maybe it’s something else. I help by treating the SOURCE of what you are facing, and I help with the day-to-day and the past of how to deal with the source, so you can be your best self. The source is a ‘root cause’ or a ‘seed’ of how it started.

My methods include the use of Gestalt techniques, Expressive Arts, EMDR (DeTUR protocol for addiction), & SandTray.
It's not easy to ask for help. Maybe you've shared your situation with close friends or family and received support and advice, but things aren't really getting better. Maybe you've been hesitant to seek out a therapist. The fact that you're here now is a demonstration of your commitment and dedication to your own personal growth and your relationships. Whether you're experiencing anxiety or depression, or you're looking for a relationship, healing from a relationship that's ended, or are in a relationship you want to strengthen or repair, you're in the right place.

It can be difficult going to therapy for the first time, but it can be a key to identifying and removing obstacles in your life. I specialize in working with couples and individuals who have a desire to stregthen their relationships, recover their intimacy, and create a more fulfilling life. I believe the quality of our lives are highly informed by the quality of our relationships. Unfortunately, there may be barriers that get in the way of building meaningful connection with yourself and others. Unprocessed trauma is an issue that is often the root cause of strained relationships, addiction, and overall poor mental health.

Sometimes, it's hard to walk through the door and ask for help. I've been there myself many times in my life. In today's world, it's also tough to find time to practice self-care. Therapy is meant to be a judgment-free space where we explore whatever you need to, whether it's grief, trauma, self-love, spirituality, self-esteem or cultural/identity issues.

I want to reassure once you decide to enter the office you can take a deep breath and let it out. I provide a comfortable at home feel when it comes to working with clients. We will work together to identify and prioritize your needs and work towards your goals.

It can be making changes to your relationships, mood, healing from trauma, or anything in between. Often, we ignore these things either by distracting or numbing ourselves.

At times, we all need help with everyday challenges -and even more so when problems show up. It is difficult to reach out for help. Especially in a culture that emphasizes self-reliance and independence. Problems (such as depression or anxiety) can disconnect us from the relationships that might help us to heal. Since 2016, I have worked with individuals, couples, & families to manage the problems they are facing and help re-connect them to significant relationships. I have helped others with relationship challenges, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and addiction.

Dealing with addiction can be very difficult and overwhelming to deal with alone. Addiction doesn't look the same for everyone but anyone can overcome addiction. Drug abuse and addiction problems can be devastating, not only to the individual but to the family as well. Knowing that you are not alone is the first step to ease your mind. Everyone with an addiction problem has their own story that should be individualized not judged but heard. Identifying the biological, environmental, behavioral, and social causes and consequences of drug use and addiction is just some of the steps that we will face together.

Addiction Therapists

What is the best therapy for addiction?

Addiction treatment will be tailored to the individual. People seeking help for addiction—whether with a psychotherapist, in an outpatient clinic, or in a residential program—should expect to engage in multiple types of treatments, sometimes including medication. For anyone recovering from addiction, avoiding situations in which one has typically used a substance is essential, as is the support of close connections. Since substance use disorders tend to co-occur with underlying mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression, those must also be addressed as part of any recovery plan.

How long does therapy for addiction take?

There is no set timeline for recovery from addiction. Patients and their families should expect the work to last several months, if not longer. Residential treatment programs may be based on a stay of 30, 60, or 90 days, with continuing work after release, but only about 1 percent of people are treated in such facilities. Ceasing use is just the first step; therapy to help maintain abstinence and effect behavior change must follow. The process of recovery, neuroscience has shown, involves brain cells recovering the capacity to respond to natural sources of reward and restore control over the impulse to use. Another definition of recovery is restoring voluntary control over one’s substance use and retaking all of one’s previous responsibilities.

How effective is drug addiction treatment?

Substance use disorders are treatable and remission is achievable for many who seek recovery; by some estimates, more than three-quarters of people who become addicted to alcohol or drugs recover. But that success rarely occurs quickly or on a set timeline; relapse is not only common, but many therapists and clinicians view it as a normal part of the process—not always a sign that a person has returned to addiction, but a signal that their treatment should be adjusted to help them regain control. Overall, research suggests, five years after the end of substance use, one’s risk of relapse is no greater than that of others who had not faced addiction. Other experts believe that complete abstinence is not the only measure of recovery, and that, through effective treatment, many people can learn to control their use.

How can you get addiction treatment for someone?

The most important factor in recovery from addiction is widely understood to be an individual’s commitment to change. For that reason,“interventions” in which friends and family gather to urge or force someone to begin immediate treatment often backfire; even when such efforts do lead someone to begin treatment, they may be less likely to stay than those who are self-driven. Still, family members can play an important role in supporting an individual who seeks help and can take part in family therapy as one element of a loved one’s treatment.
