Throughout my fifteen-year career, I have worked with clients at all levels of care: withdrawal management, residential, intensive outpatient, psychiatric emergency services, inpatient behavioral health, and private practice. I specialize in substance use and co-occurring disorders, while treating a full array of mental health conditions.
Our work together will help you develop a sense of purpose, and meaning, while fostering a relationship with self, others, and your environment to support long-term growth. As a person in long-term recovery I bring a unique combination of clinical and personal experience.
Our work is driven by what you hope to achieve; I assist with developing goals and breaking them down into incremental opportunities for change. In my experience, major change in a short period of time is not sustainable. Change is a daily process and each day provides opportunities for measurable success; why wait to feel proud of yourself when you can celebrate small changes daily?
During our first sessions, we'll focus on assessment, and getting to understand why you are seeking help. I strive for this to be more than simple question and answer; I invite open-ended discussion and exploration of the themes and patterns that mark your experience. You are the expert on you, and I am eager to learn. I will always bring my genuine self and be your partner on the road to lasting change.
