As a dual-licensed marriage and family therapist and alcohol and drug counselor, I specialize in addiction recovery and work with alcohol and drug addicted individuals, as well as family members who would like to better understand the emotional consequences of addiction, the recovery process, the impact of addiction on the family and how families get well. My holistic treatment approach empowers clients and their families impacted by substance and behavioral dependency by giving them the tools necessary to achieve sustained recovery.
Addiction can best be understood by considering how the family functions as a whole, how individual members respond to the addicted person. Wherever you are in this cycle of recovery – as an addict or a family member – know that people can and do recover; they can restore freedom to their lives, even peace. Though it often feels like things will never change, they frequently can.
My goal as provider is to help you through the necessary losses and transitions of recovery, so that you can create the life you want. A life worth living.
