My Approach

I use a holistic, compassionate and client-centered approach utilizing your strengths and learning style to individualize your therapy course; my toolbox is made up of techniques/ interventions from an array of models/theories and my approach is also informed by what we now know about the brain. For those with alcohol/drug use/addiction, I will work from an abstinence-based or harm-reduction stance depending on individual goals and challenges.

My Background

I have over 30 years experience as a psychiatric and addictions nurse and more recently, clinical social worker (LCSW) and addiction counselor (CADCI), in hospital, residential, and outpatient mental health and addictions settings. My experience is with children, adolescents, young adults, adults and families. I have a passion for working with people who struggle with addiction and I will provide support for facing the difficulties of early recovery or when life's hurdles challenge recovery along the way. I also have worked with health care professionals with mental health/addiction problems and can help support the unique struggles of working in healthcare and managing self-care. I also have experience and enjoy working with college students.
