I offer individual and couples psychotherapy services consist of compassionately helping you solve problems, better understand yourself, and grow. I utilize my eclectic background of therapeutic training to help you learn about your thoughts, feelings, and emotions and see how these impact how you feel and what you do. In couples counseling, I help people learn about communication problems, trust issues, and problems with intimacy.
I also provide counseling services to help people deal with addictions and substance abuse. I have been trained in helping people deal with compulsive sexual behavior and addiction to alcohol and drugs. I help people learn about their use, learn ways to abstain from problematic behavior, and rebuild their relationships.
Psychotherapy can help you with any of the following:
- Addictions and Recovery
- Compulsive Sexual Behaviors
- Problematic Relationships/Codependency
- Couples Counseling
- Work and Career Issues
- Stress Management
- Grief and Loss
Substance Abuse Evaluations
I also specialize in providing substance abuse evaluations for those who are wondering if they have an alcohol or drug problem and who are experiencing problems relating to alcohol and drugs. Substance abuse evaluations are commonly recommended by attorneys for legal charges such as possession charges or driving while intoxicated (DWI).
I conduct substance abuse evaluations utilizing recognized assessment and screening tools, which is then followed by a comprehensive interview to reach an objective recommendation for the person being evaluated.
Reasons to participate in a Substance Abuse Evaluation include:
- Family or friends complaining about your alcohol or drug use
- Legal problems relating to your alcohol or drug use
- Financial issues related to your alcohol or drug use
- Multiple failed attempts to stop using
- Questioning if you have a problem
- You know you have a problem, but are unsure of the level of treatment needed
