If you are reading this what you really want to know is:
Do I really know what I’m doing?
Am I any good?
It was ironic because it’s not at all how I work with my clients or how I am in the world. I’m warm and probably too friendly. As you read this you’ll get an idea of who I am and if we’ll work well together, not just list the things I’ve done (though you can click here for that information).
I consider being a therapist an absolute privilege. My story of becoming a therapist began with my own personal development journey, so I am aware how special and important my role is.
I AM NOT THE SMILE AND NOD THERAPIST.
I roll up my sleeves and jump in the deep end with you. I know you are the expert on you, but I have a great BS detector. I’ll call you on your stuff. I will laugh with you. I will cry with you and I will bring everything I have learned and experienced to our time together.
This isn’t my first rodeo. I’ve worked with thousands of clients. After twenty five years in this field I’m unshockable. I’m not afraid to talk about anything you need to talk about. Sex? Money? Long held secrets? Let’s get it all out; there’s nothing to be ashamed of.
And to answer the very first question: Yes, I do know what I’m doing. I am continually learning and improving so I can be the expert you need.
I may not always get it right. I definitely make mistakes and when I do I am very transparent and in the moment with my clients. In fact, my clients teach me extraordinary lessons everyday about being human. So to answer those first two questions…
I love what I do, and yes, I am good at it.

I also have extensive experience in working with families and individuals effected by chronic medical, mental health and developmental disabilities.

I’m not telling you it is going to be easy, I’m telling you it’s going to be worth it.
Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us. Many of us have been affected by addiction, either personally, through our children, in close family or intimate relationships. Addiction is a family disease and the tentacles of its destruction can often leave us perplexed, exhausted or in despair. I have over 10 years of experience in the conceptual and practical application of the disease and recovery model of addiction. With mindfulness, self-discovery and the experience, strength and hope only gained through personal experience you do not have to go it alone, I can help!
