I am an inclusive, person-centered, and strengths-based therapist with extensive experience facilitating substance use and trauma-focused individual and group therapy sessions over the past 20 years.

I have a deep passion for working with people who use substances and am able to provide them with a compassionate, non-judgmental, and safe therapeutic space to help them achieve their goals. Helping clients work through and heal from the shame that is so commonly the underlying cause of substance use is the most rewarding thing for me as a therapist.

I've successfully helped many clients who felt trapped inside patterns of self-destructive and shame-based thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with becoming unstuck and developing much healthier patterns of post-traumatic growth, self-compassion, and existential meaning and purpose in life.

Please reach out to me if you think we might be a good fit to work together. I would be honored to help you achieve your goals.
