Substance Use & Addiction

Learn to view yourself with compassion. Gain knowledge, skills & connect. Create a life you love!

Do you feel hopeless and powerless to stop using drugs or alcohol? Have you tried to quit using but have been unable to maintain your sobriety for any significant amount of time? Are your relationships falling apart? Is your career being affected by your behavior?


Are you sober but your life still lacks meaning, connections, and joy? 


Do you desire to create meaningful and lasting changes in the way you think, feel and behave? Do you wish to create lasting changes in the way you live?


If you are concerned about:

  • a recent increase in drugs or alcohol
  • been struggling to get sober for a while
  • have been sober but slipped
  • have been living in recovery but still feel lost and dissatisfied with life

I can help you!


What would I be doing in therapy?


It’s up to you how you wish to use your time. However, I found that addressing these things over time can be extremely beneficial in supporting lasting change and achieving long-term recovery if that’s your desire.


  • Tell your story 
  • Explore  your experiences and relationship with drugs and alcohol
  • Determine your goals
  • Identify your level of motivation
  • Boot confidence
  • Name past successes, big and small
  • Discuss steps you’ve taken in the past which helped you
  • Explore possible actions you could begin to take to support your goals
  • Point out and begin to address current challenges in your life
  • Solidify your goals
  • Together start to develop a concrete step-by-step plan of action to help your success

I create a safe place for you to share those past or present life experiences which influence your use of substances. 


Together we will assess all areas of your life to create a balanced living.


Let me help you heal, grow, and move towards positive lasting change. Don't wait any longer. Contact me today!
