You are a person, not a disorder.

I can help you with an array of concerns. Mental Health, Substance Use & Addiction, Relationship Issues and Personal Growth. Regardless of what your are facing your a person, never a diagnosis.

I consider myself someone who works with people rather than specializes in specific disorders or issues. This is primarily due to my desire to assist you with whatever it is you are facing. I also have found while you may present to counseling with a desire to address one particular issue, you may quickly discover there are other areas you wish to explore. 

It is important to understand while I may have areas of interest, I want to work alongside you on anything you find troubling in your life experience.  Please feel free to discuss any issues you're experiencing. 

As we meet and get to know one another, we can discuss the best treatment options together.
