People reconnect with inner peace, clarity, and happiness after freeing themselves from problematic patterns. We often get stuck in old behaviors and getting support to practice new ways to cope can bring freedom and peace. You may be feeling like change is not possible, perhaps you have been trying and it feels like an uphill struggle. You are not alone; many people have been through these challenges and change and growth are possible. You deserve respectful and compassionate support.
I specialize in addiction treatment, and I have many years of experience and training supporting individuals recovering from both substance use and other types of addictions, such as internet/social media addiction and gambling. Whether you are looking for support to reduce your use, better understand your relationship with substances or with the problematic behavior, or support to start and maintain abstinence- I can help you. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, non-assuming place for you to explore your concerns. I understand that there are many paths on the road to recovery. I am trained in relapse prevention, dual diagnosis, and in recovery maintenance. I will use many methods to support you in reaching your goals, including motivational interviewing to help you increase your ability to connect your drive to change with action; I use CBT and DBT to help you gain insight into behaviors, thoughts and emotions.
I also provide support for trauma stabilization, PTSD, complex trauma, depression and anxiety.
