Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Are you feeling hopeless or useless because you’re having trouble stopping the use of drugs or alcohol? Does it feel as though you’re locked in a perpetual cycle of toxic relationships you can’t get out of? Have you ever felt like you don’t deserve love and affection because your major relationships have been with emotionally unavailable people? Does it feel as though you experience more setbacks than progress? Are you currently feeling trapped in a relationship you don’t know how to leave? Do you just feel… stuck?
There is a way out.
I’m here to help you find your true self, the you who exists under the substance abuse, under the toxic relationships, the you who is good. The hardest thing in the world is to acknowledge when we need help. The fact that you’re reading these words now means that you have been able to realize that & have begun to take steps to change your life.
I understand how hard it is to make the decision to let go of the chemical addiction or codependent behavior that helped you cope with life to this point. I know how scary it is to suddenly find yourself facing the world without these tools. I know how alone you feel. The good news is that you are not alone.
I’m here to help you. I’ve been where you are, whether you’re struggling with addiction to drugs & alcohol or with “addiction” to trying to “fix” or “save” someone who is abusing substances. I have walked in your shoes and I have used my experiences to find my passion, my calling in life as a clinical therapist.
When you meet with me, you’ll be greeted with the empathy and the caring approach that comes from someone who truly understands the struggle of substance abuse and codependency. My 25 years of experience working in this field helping others to rediscover their true selves will support you as you begin this journey. I am skilled at meeting you where you’re at and providing a safe, nonjudgmental environment for you to make the choices you want to make to live the life you want to have. Through use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Counseling, and Person-Centered Therapy, I will support you and help you rebuild. I will help you find strength within you that you didn’t know you had. I will customize my approach to help you find and develop healthy coping skills that work for you.
Reach out to me today. I’m waiting to hear from you.
