Making a positive connection with your therapist is vital to a successful outcome. My job is to create an atmosphere of safety, compassion, and hope necessary for you and/or your family member to engage in therapy to confront what is likely one of the greatest challenges of your lives. I respect your courage in seeking help and the trust you'll be placing in me.

We'll work together to identify your existing strengths and resources as well as any obstacles that are in the way of moving forward. I'll help you develop tools and strategies you'll need to help you meet your goals.

Based on what you want to accomplish in treatment, I'll help you figure out where and how to begin, as well as offer options for you to gain some traction to take further steps forward. I've become a better therapist by witnessing my clients' honesty and courage, sharing their life experiences and knowledge, and becoming a partner with them in their unique paths in recovery.

My Therapy Focus

As a licensed psychologist and certified addictions counselor, I'm aware of the complex interaction among substance use, physical, emotional, social and spiritual issues. We'll work together to sort out this interaction and identify some steps to address them. You may choose to want to use more safely, use less, or abstain from substances totally. We'll identify your existing strengths and resources as well as any obstacles that are in the way of moving forward. I'll help you develop tools and strategies you'll need to help you meet your goals.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Many who come to see me for a substance use problem are usually aware they need to do something about their problem, but are unsure of what approaches or goals will suit their particular concerns. You may have already tried other therapies or approaches and were unsuccessful or not comfortable with typical "cookie cutter" approaches to substance abuse therapy. I offer discrete, personalized therapy based on where you are the present time, and what your goals are. We focus on self-empowerment, which increases hope about moving forward
