I believe that people work to achieve success and happiness in the best ways they know how. There are times in our lives when we feel our ability to solve problems or move forward is hampered by a lack of options and understanding. These times are when I can offer help to expand perspectives and find alternative solutions. Helping people along this process of change is what brings meaning to my life, makes me curious and is how I make my living.
I have blended over 40 years of experience in the addiction field with over 30 years experience in the mental health field to create a working style of insight-oriented psychotherapy and contemporary psychoanalysis. We create a collaborative relationship that fosters curiosity, we search for meaning and understanding to create options and find compassion for ourselves and others. My experience includes working in the following types of programs: In-patient & out-patient adult alcohol & drug programs (including one of the few adult programs with pregnant addicts and mothers with their children living on site), in-patient eating disorders, out-patient sexual addiction, out-patient & in-patient psychiatric, community mental health programs and the in-patient & out-patient John Bradshaw Co-dependency program. I’ve helped people address their addiction or abuse of alcohol, drugs and sexual behaviors; those with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship struggles and communication problems; adults with histories of childhood abuse; and people simply wanting to make creative changes to their lives.
