OVER 15 YEARS EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH INDIVIDUALS, COUPLES AND GROUPS
SPECIALIZING IN TREATMENT OF ADDICTION, CO-ADDICTION OR CODEPENDENCY, ADULT CHILDREN, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, CO-OCCURRING MOOD/PERSONALITY DISORDERS WITH SUBSTANCE ABUSE, AND SEXUAL IDENTITY AND DEVELOPMENT
Some of my clients have been able to trace their difficulties to a single event or series of events. However, the great majority of my clients suffer from I would call the cumulative trauma associated with maturing in and living as adults at this particular time in this particular place. All the negative experiences throughout one's life contribute to the creation of an often complex set of defense mechanisms. These mechanisms often result in addiction, co-addiction or codependency, emotional immaturity, anxiety, and/or depression.
My goal is to help you strip away misperceptions you may have about yourself and others in order to help you have a clearer vision of reality. Once you are able to see more clearly, you will come to terms with the past, accept the present and plan for the future as a mature adult. You will no longer see the world as a dangerous or threatening place.
The results you get from working with me will depend on your commitment to the process. It is likely that if you are committed, you will begin to feel a sense of purpose in your life, enjoy life more, have more to offer, and fear life less.
I have worked with individuals suffering from a variety of issues, couples seeking to better understand their relationship and families whose members are learning how to coexist more peacefully.
