Why Choose Me? 

Let's start with the statistics. 

According to recent research, more than 85 percent of people who receive treatment for substance use relapse within one year, and two thirds of those relapse within their first two weeks after treatment.

Yep. Clearly someone is missing the mark. 

So what makes me so different? 

Most addiction treatment models utilize a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach. This approach stands firm behind the belief that a person's thoughts control their emotions and their emotions control their actions. Therefore, if a person can control the triggering thoughts that make them want to use substances then they can inadvertently control their substance use.  

I operate under the assumption; if you could control your thoughts, you would have done so already. 

 

Most often, a person can not simply will away an addiction through sheer self control. It's about as effective as dieting. You start Monday and by Friday night you're waiting until your spouse goes to sleep so you can eat an entire box of cookies.  It just doesn't work long term. 

Let me tell you a secret, your addiction has nothing to do with the substance itself. Nothing. And quite honestly, we will spend very little time talking about substance abuse in our sessions. That part will take care of itself without your doing. You heard that right

I'll help you approach your addiction in a way that quickly digs at the root, allowing you to break free from the parts of yourself that cling to substances. Book your first appointment with me and see real and lasting results in as little as 4 hours!

 
A few things that are important to me: ​​
  • Your time. I won't spend your time on things that don't work toward your personal goals. Your recovery matters to me. 

  • Quality therapy. I will use proven interventions that work to give you real measurable results in the shortest amount of time possible.

  • If I can't help you I won't waste your time trying. I'll quickly refer you out to someone who can.

Let's see if we are a good fit.
