"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.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Career Coach, Certified EMDR Therapist
Marietta, Georgia 30064
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.

I believe that substance abuse is a barrier to many living a purposeful and meaningful life. I have worked with helping break the cycle of addiction in a hospital setting and understand the lies and patterns many face while abusing drugs or alcohol. I believe that this is a disease that does not have to progress It is my job to empower clients with choices that will move them forward into a new future.
