As a clinician with over thirty years of experience in substance abuse, grief, and relationship counseling, I can assist you in looking at your concerns from the perspective of your childhood and current family and life experiences. I am able to guide you through identifying how these patterns repeat themselves and utilizing coping skills that will redirect behavior to the changes you want to make. Looking at the way family of origin issues have affected your previous decisions can help identify learned behaviors and create change that will perpetuate healthy lifestyle choices. I can help with anxiety, family issues, substance abuse, and in particular, the challenges of navigating early recovery, both as an individual and in the context of interpersonal relationships. I focus also, on grief counseling, break-up recovery, relationship strengthening, and premarital counseling.
