My Approach to Helping
I approach my work with sensitivity and a desire to help individuals develop skills needed to reclaim their lives. Therapy is an opportunity to be heard and understood. It can be a highly effective tool to assist in life's challenges. My approach to therapy is action-oriented. I will assist you in selecting specific strategies to help address the problems you are experiencing and we will focus on the here and now. If you are struggling with anxiety, sadness, hopelessness (depression) or experiencing family relationship issues, I can help. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor. Additionally, I work with those who struggle with alcohol and drug addiction. This is a treatable disorder and there are many approaches available to help you obtain abstinence if you choose. I aim to create a supportive environment for those struggling with patterns of self-defeating behaviors. Feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to schedule an appointment.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
One of my areas of expertise is working with clients who struggle with chemical dependency whether their own or a family member or friend. Alcohol abuse, drug addiction (heroin, cocaine, prescription medications etc) are diseases that may require treatment. There are many modalities to choose from. Treatment may help uncover the underlying issues, those uncomfortable feelings and sources of distress, that lead to compulsive, addictive behaviors.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
The purpose of therapy is to help reduce suffering and assist in helping one attain personal goals.
