Areas of Expertise

Psychotherapy for Adolescents, Adults, Couples & Families

I have been involved in the addiction recovery field for almost three decades, working with adolescents and adults in both inpatient and outpatient settings. 

I specialize in providing support, education, prevention and crisis management to adolescents, adults, couples and families who are struggling with drug and alcohol issues as well as depression and anxiety symptoms that may be a result of, or a contributor to, the use of substances.

I meet my clients "where they're at", meaning that I don't believe in a one size fits all approach to treatment and/or recovery. I integrate evidence based psychotherapies, my clinical expertise and the client's unique characteristics, experience and goals to make therapy effective.

As a psychotherapist it is my goal to provide an atmosphere where you feel seen, heard and respected. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to support others in their struggles and honored when someone chooses to share their journey with me.

My clients have described me as authentic, caring and direct. Humor and compassion for self have been essential elements in my 30 plus years of recovery and are infused in my work with clients.

  • I believe that you have the capacity to make different choices and to experience the freedom from self destructive thoughts and behaviors.

  • I believe that you are not the problem, but that your choice of coping strategies is.

  • I believe that you have inherent strengths that have helped you to get this far.

  • I believe that you can have fun doing this work!

I offer Walk and Talk Therapy as an option. Learn more
