About

Are you looking for someone who understands the complexity of substance use disorders coupled with mental health? I place great focus on creating a safe, nonjudgmental space to unpack struggle. I believe that positive rapport between client and therapist is paramount to the therapy model and commit to placing that at high value in our work together.
I specialize in co-occuring substance abuse and mental health treatment. I understand the connection from my own personal accounts as well as through my education and professional experiences. I utilize a variety of modalities including strength based, motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy.
I believe life can often be best lived taking it one day at a time. Sometimes those days are filled with great pain and struggle. I'm here to walk along side you as you move through suffering into the light. I'm grateful to have experienced my own darkness for it has given me the opportunity to experience the light that I know is available to you too.
