My Approach to Helping
I have been practicing social work for over 20 years and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor. I am also an Army veteran. I have worked in inpatient, outpatient, opioid treatment, and community-based programs. I will work with you to explore your substance use and identify your own goals related to your use. We will work together to develop a plan using evidence-based practices to help you reach those goals. I also enjoy working with individuals who might have co-occurring mental health concerns, particularly PTSD or borderline personality disorder. Some therapies I use include Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Seeking Safety, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
