Do you find yourself acting in self-defeating ways at work, home or in your intimate relationships?

  • Do you have a difficult time determining what 'normal' looks like (behavior, relationships, etc)?
  • Did you grow up in a dysfunctional home?
  • Are you struggling to find purpose and meaning in your life?
  • Are you an adult but sometimes feel more like a child?
  • Are you addicted to or dependent on a person?
  • Do you or your loved one need professional help to address substance use/misuse/abuse/dependence?
  • Do you wonder whether your or your loved one's relationship to substances and/or behaviors is compulsive?
  • Do you wonder why your relationships are not fulfilling?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I may be able to help.
