I am honored to be of service to you. I know that substance abuse, addiction, and mental health can wreak havoc in one’s life. Many of client’s find themselves faced with challenges of having to restart their lives after addiction and/or mental health; some may have to fight to regain custody of their children; many of them have co-occurring mental illness that has lead to substance abuse and/or addiction. For some, addiction comes by way of biological, environmental, and social influences, but from my experience, I have learned that mental illness was present before addiction became a factor. Take Control Today!
I have worked with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health population for over 10 years. I have worked with addictions ranging from food addiction, bulimia, binge eating disorder, marijuana to opioid use disorder (heroin). I have also been afforded the opportunity to treat diagnosis including: depression, bipolar disorder, mood disorder, TBI, schizophrenia, PTSD, ADD, and eating disorders. I am certified as a trauma focused therapist, DBT informed, and advanced training in nutritional and integrative medicine.
In addition, I also assist clients with Life Coaching strategies to help improve their overall functionality. I am an Author and provide on-demand instructional interventions. My philosophy is to “help others make sense of living” through the guidance of evidence based practices that help you discover your greatest life.
