Loving someone with addictive behaviors or a substance use problem can often cause us to lose ourselves. You spend so much time consumed with worry about the other person, concerned that they may hurt themselves or someone else. You can't sleep at night because you are thinking of their legal problems, health issues, or are wondering where they are at that moment. Whether it is your child, parent, significant other or a friend, your whole life seems to be consumed by them.
This can be emotionally and physically tiring. It can feel like you are carrying the weight of two people on one pair of shoulders. Maybe you lose the desire to do things you once loved. Perhaps you begin to distance yourself from friends or notice more conflict in romantic relationships.
What you are looking for is relief from the pain and distress. You would like to learn how to trust others and love fully without fear. It would be wonderful to feel whole again, and get back to doing things you enjoyed without guilt.
Unfortunately, there is no magic power that can change your loved one. The good news is that if you relate to anything mentioned above, I can help you. We will work together to get your life and relationships back to where you want them to be. Although many people may experience similar situations, you are a unique individual. Our goal is to use the tools that work best for you so you can experience the relief you deserve.
Call me for a 15 minute complimentary consultation, and we can focus on what it is that you truly need.

More Info About My Practice
I run a fee-for-service practice, which means that I do not accept insurance. I find that this keeps your personal information more confidential. Also, it gives you a stronger voice in your treatment and we will not be confined to the rules that insurance places.
I take payment in the form of cash, check, major credit card, and PayPal. Please call me directly to inquire about fees.
What I Usually Need to Know to Help
What is happening in your life at this moment? Maybe you notice physical changes...Loss of sleep or stomach problems, for example. Perhaps it something more along the lines of having a hard time concentrating, not enjoying activities you once loved or having trouble connecting with friends or partners. No matter what you're experiencing, it's important for me to know so that we can best tailor our time together for your specific needs.
One of the most important things I like to explore is; What's great about you? What is working in your life?
Often, answers we need are already within us, they just need a little extra help to come forward.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
I could say that life growing up was a fairytale...although, I would be referring to the Grimm's version (if you're not familiar, look them up. It's not what would classify as "kid-friendly").
I grew up surrounded by alcoholism and other forms of addiction on all sides of my large family. This would go on to shape my relationships, my view on the world, and my self-worth. For many years, I could not understand why I had so many loved ones in my life with addictive behaviors (friends, family, and romantic partners). All I knew was that it was exhausting, and taking an immense emotional and physical toll on me.
I took matters into my own hands and realized that my calling in life was to help others who had similar experiences. If I could come out of these dire situations happier, healthier and more successful, than I know anyone can. Being a therapist allows me to use my experiences to help you move through what you are experiencing in your life, without having to take the long road that I did. And if your road has already been long? You now have access to the help that you need. Let's get you to where you deserve to be.
