Suffering from addictions is an intense personal struggle that can keep you from living the life that you want. I offer clients support and guidance through their journey in recovery. I help clients to develop healthier ways of dealing with difficult emotions, anxiety, depression, and anger. I work with clients on finding ways to develop greater personal strength that is needed in order to live a life free of addiction. Together I work with clients towards developing new health promoting patterns to replace the addiction. I help clients to begin to develop personal compassion and to recognize the strength and positive qualities that are already inside of them.

This is not Rehab or AA but, an opportunity to understand and uncover the issues underneath your addiction. Once you understand the triggers and patterns, this will support you to be in recovery and make healthy choices to live your most meaningful life. As you let go of old patterns and create new ones, you begin to change and grow. Recovery is about finding yourself, changing your perceptions, and learning to trust yourself. I can help you on this amazing journey. It is so worth it!

I do not offer detox services. However, I do offer one-on-one supportive outpatient therapy and individual IOP in a private atmosphere that encourages each client to move to the next-lower level of support and regain personal autonomy. Frequently, I see clients who do not wish to participate in 12-step programs. For them, I create individualized programs based on the principles of SMART Recovery and Life Ring Recovery, which address underlying problems, such as anger. In addition, I am a U.S. Dept. of Transportation Certified Substance Abuse Professional (SAP).

Addiction is a person’s attempt to cope with a problem that feels overwhelming. Addiction is often rooted in some underlying trauma which creates complicated behavioral, emotional and medical problems. The benefits of addiction counseling include eliminating shame and guilt which tends to feed the cycle of addiction. I will collaborate with you to determine the severity of the addiction, figure out with you key people to include in your social support system, and work together with you to evaluate the best course of action to solve the problem of addiction.

Has addiction (whatever type) taken control of your life, interferred with relationships, work, or ruined your self-esteem? Over 35 years of research has statistically proven that EEG Biofeedback can train your brain to function more optimally and gently free you from your addiction much more effectively than faith based programs. EEG Biofeedback teaches your brain how to reset the brain chemicals. Often there are not enough brain chemicals causing you to seek other "fixes" such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, porn, etc. to help you feel better. We can help train your brain be flexible and resilient without lengthy therapy and assist you in getting your life back without the dependency.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Individual therapy for substance abuse or addiction is an integral part of any relapse prevention plan. I work with clients to continue the progress they made at a treatment center, help supplement their relapse prevention plan, or discuss their substance use patterns. Clients will continue working on finding balance, repairing relationships, building self esteem, and creating a positive future. Substance abuse counseling for individuals is helpful for those considering recovery and already in recovery. Individual therapy is an excellent addition to AA meeting, SMART recovery, or other relapse prevention groups.
