I believe the therapeutic process is most effective when an authentic connection is developed to lay the foundation for change. Therapy should ideally be a collaborative relationship in which the therapist and client work together to build fresh coping skills and achieve desired goals. I believe in creating a safe and non-judgmental environment in which clients can explore their own personal pathways to well-being. I have spent the majority of my career working to treat individuals and families affected by addiction and co-occurring disorders. I utilize an eclectic and integrative approach to therapy, incorporating Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), 12 Step Facilitation Therapy as well as Reality Based treatment techniques. I am also a Certified Clinical Supervisor and can offer LPC or LCSW supervision for anyone in the licensure process.
