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, 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 disease and there are many approaches available to help you obtain abstinence. 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.
More Info About My Practice
With opioid abuse on the rise, treatment is necessary as soon as possible. I have developed relationships with several in-patient and out-patient treatment facilities to treat the disease of drug addiction and alcoholism. If you struggle with abuse, treatment is the key to your freedom from these diseases. I also have established relationships with several psychiatrists in the area. If you are in need of medical treatment, I can point you in the right direction. My sessions are 45 minutes in length. I do not accept insurance but will provide you with a bill to submit to your insurance company for re-imbursement (out-of-network benefits). I also provide phone therapy sessions, can Skype and FaceTime as well. I offer you many opportunities to seek the help you need or want. You may call me anytime at 844-299-4499.

Therapytreatment for addiction will help uncover the underlying issues, those uncomfortable feelings and sources of distress, that lead to compulsive, addictive behaviors.
