My Approach to Helping
Mental Illness and addiction robs us of our hopes and dreams. It touches all areas of our life, harming ourselves, our parents, partners, and children. At times life feels hopeless. Even the idea of change seems unattainable. To treat mental illness and addiction or substance use disorders you address a host of emotions, trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, life issues, and existential struggles. I have spent the last 16 years of my career helping individuals, couples, and families heal from mental illness and substance use disorders and making this moment a leaping off event to their next journey.
I have focused my career on helping people heal from addiction and trauma. Thankfully both are treatable, allowing someone to access the life they want. Working together we can heal the trauma and place the addiction into remission. This painful chapter can come to a close freeing clients to write the next story of their life.
My typical client is one who is just getting ready to dip their toe into the idea of recovery or starting the healing process. Many times families begin the process with a phone call and a free consultation.
