Licensed Professional Counselor

Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor

 

Have you been court ordered to substance abuse treatment by a certified licensed professional? Are you concerned about your teen’s use of alcohol or drugs and worry about their health or success in life? Maybe your decisions regarding shopping, gambling, or internet use is causing a wedge in your family and others are getting frustrated with your behaviors. If you are feeling like your use is out of control or others have expressed their concern or frustration and it is causing you to damage the relationships meaningful to you, counseling can help get back on track. Or, if you have been required to come to counseling as a result of legal action due to your use, I can help. I am experienced and certified in the treatment of substance abuse and addiction problems including gambling, internet, gaming, and shopping. I help my clients identify their own goals and determine how they want to use our time together so they can get the most out of their experience in counseling.

 

You might not even be sure if you have a problem or if counseling can help. I help my clients learn to manage even the most difficult of situations in healthy ways and manage life’s ups and downs with tools that work. Counseling can teach you the skills and strategies to reach the goals you set for yourself regarding your substance use or addictions. You will build confidence, strengthen relationships, and succeed in the areas in your life that matter to you.

 

Other than substance use and addiction, new clients come in struggling with feelings of emptiness and hopelessness. They might have a history of depression, anxiety, trauma, deployment, or having unmanageable worry. Having lots of stress and pressure in life is overwhelming. Especially without support. I am experienced in counseling teens, families, military, and offenders and I can help you.
