I have worked with clients with a substance use disorder for over a decade. Substance use disorders are not all the same, and I believe that clients experiencing difficulties with alcohol and/or substances should be treated as such. I work to treat the whole person, and can help the client create their own substance abuse recovery program. If a higher level of care is needed, I can also help to find the right treatment center for you.

My approach to addiction counseling is integrative. I utilize person-centered therapy; cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and relapse prevention with my client's struggling with chemical dependency. I have found that utilizing all 3 counseling approaches in tandem have proven to be beneficial to my client's recovery; and in maintaining abstinence.

"The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection." (Johann Hari). In my work with clients suffering from substance abuse and addiction, we look at the root issues underlying unhealthy, compulsive behaviors. For many, histories of dysfunctional relationships - be it neglect, trauma, or codependency - create emotional wounds. Coming from an attachment theory perspective, I work with clients to heal, recover a healthy sense of self and begin the work of actualizing a stable future. I have experience working in an addiction intensive outpatient facility and feel deep respect for those who have battled for their lives by getting help and discovering freedom.

Addictions (substance or behavioral) are often coping mechanisms you developed early in life to help you deal with anxiety, sadness, feeling like you don't fit in, feeling you don't matter, feeling powerless, or for numbing the pain of being criticized, abandoned, neglected, abused or traumatized in some other way. Traumatic events or a life time of upsetting events are often the root cause of addiction. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist with extensive experience in helping adults heal from and put in the past the upsetting events that contribute to their addiction. EMDR Therapy is highly effective and is offered at all the leading residential treatment programs for addiction recovery.
