My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed psychotherapist and addiction specialist with over 20 years of experience helping others. As a therapist, I believe that all people have innate resilience and numerous personal strengths and abilities. I also believe it’s natural for people to feel vulnerable at times. In my work, I have found that providing a safe environment and being non-judge mental are the keys to a successful therapeutic alliance.
I have helped individuals focus on self-awareness and the identification and achievement of self-directed goals. I specialize in behavioral addictions as well as chemical addictions, sex offender therapy, domestic violence victim and perpetrator therapy, codependency and relationship therapy, and court-ordered screenings, assessments and services. I also have extensive knowledge and experience in providing gender affirmative therapies and trauma informed services for women and families.
I have successfully helped individuals of all ages build effective coping skills to deal with life’s challenges.
