Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am a trauma-informed addictions therapist dedicated to helping adults cope with addiction and co-occurring depression, anxiety, PTSD and other factors that make it hard to heal from addiction.
Currently Accepting New Clients in Early Recovery or Active Addiction Only. Relapse Prevention group counseling now available. Are you caught up in a cycle of addictive behaviors such as substance misuse, gambling, or the Internet? I have good news and bad news for you. Let’s start with the bad news: it takes a lot of effort to stop addictive behaviors, and to address the underlying emotional or trauma issues that compel you to relapse over and over again. There’s no magic wand, no Abracadabra. Now the good news: The cycle doesn’t have to be endless. Recovery is possible!
I have 26 years experience working in the addictions and mental health treatment field and have worked in a variety of settings. I authored a workbook on Mindfulness-Based Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. I also specialize in behavioral addictions like gambling and the Internet, as well as addressing trauma that can perpetuate addictive behavior.
My approach is eclectic, client-centered, empathic, and goal-directed.
