My Approach to Helping
I work collaboratively with individuals motivated to make important
change in their lives and living fully. Whether its finding a more
fulfilling career, learning how to have healthier and deeper
relationships, or overcoming internal struggles to move towards
wellness and inner peace.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I have extensive experience working with people with long and
difficult substance use histories, as well as those newer to these
issues. My approach is non-judgmental or moralistic. I use a harm
reduction approach, accepting each person's individual goals as valid.
Seeing through a harm reduction lens, I support clients in their path
whether they aim at total abstinence from substance, reduction of use,
or simply safer use. Many clients of mine have benefitted from my
nurturing their own motivation to change behaviors and reaffirm their
steps to achieve their life goals.
