About My Clients

Sometimes we feel trapped and do not know the answers to feelings of hopelessness, guilt, shame, and fear. I know that there is a way out of addiction and it is not easy. It will take small steps to reach the goal and the goal will end in happiness. We need to ask for help in order to reach the goal and there is no shame in asking. You can make a choice for life and end drug and alcohol addiction. I know that you are thinking that it is hard to stop and have to believe that it is not true.

My Background and Approach

I have been working with the substance abuse population for 14 years at three treatment centers and enjoy helping people that are struggling with the addiction. I have used cognitive behavioral therapy to help identify triggers to use drugs and alcohol and use reality therapy for choices and goals. I believe that substance use is a belief to change.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that alcohol and drug use is not a coping mechanism for us. It is the destroyer of a lot of good people in our society today. I know you are feeling scared and tired of the same thing over and over. Being all alone out there in the world is a bit confusing and finding answers is next to nothing. Feeling bad, worthless and struggling with the thoughts of negativity seems normal. I know about the void that is endless and hopeless at times. There is a way out and I can help with some type of direction. It is hard and a long journey out of the nothingness and miracles do happen. So even though I might not be the one to help you out of the void, you can ask someone you trust to help you now. So don't wait and be ashamed because you can do it. I enjoy helping those who help themselves and it takes courage to do so. Empowerment is the key and it takes little steps for success.
