I have a passion for helping individuals struggling with addiction. I bring a unique perspective to healing journey that includes a holistic, individualized approach. Recovery is not a “one size fits all” process. I look forward to discovering what works for you and helping you take that journey through recovery with confidence and success.
We are impacted by our family histories and, as we understand this, we can make new choices. I’ll help you look at addictive behavior patterns, family systems, abuse history, foster family experiences, grief/loss/healing, and personal growth challenges. I also do group therapy work with adolescents, adults and seniors.
Feel free to call with questions and discuss what you are looking for in therapy. Together we can de-escalate a crisis, develop goals or process an experience. If you are interested in my approach to addictions, I believe in the 12-Step model. Nevertheless I do respect alternative recovery paths.
I have been trained in long and short term models of therapy. Cognitive Behavioral, Humanistic, Jungian, Psychodynamic, and Family Systems are the methods mostly used in my practice.
Extra training and experience with LGBTQ issues; short or long term individual therapy, couples work, and blended family methods, offer a very well rounded approach. We can focus on solving specific problems or explore the deeper psyche. It’s all connected.
I have been helping people work on a variety of issues for more than a decade. Whether we are working on depression, anxiety, substance related problems or any other issue, I believe in using techniques that research has shown to be effective.
You are unique. Your struggles, goals, strengths and preferences are unique to you. For that reason I tailor every aspect of your therapy to you. I will work with you to identify your goals and help you conquer the challenges that stand between you and the life you want.
