I am a psychotherapist, sex therapist, chemical dependency professional, and EMDR clinician for adults. I support people who experienced trauma, deal with their own substance use or the use by a loved one. I work with intimate partners to attend and reignite their relationships and sexuality. ,
I specialize in working with people and families who struggle with the consequences of substance use, and life-long traumas. These can show as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, relationship challenges, addictions, and adjustment to life changes and more. The therapeutic work I do integrates various evidence based practices. We meet where you are at in your journey, and work collaboratively towards your goals. Together, we will explore what works, try tools and skills to evaluate what is effective for you.
The impact of Substance use and life-challenges on relationships bring us back to a sense of threat. we fall back to old patterns of behaviors that are not how we want to be in the world. At times, we are at our worst with the people we love most. The cost to our connection can be high. Finding ways to get back to feeling connected and passionate is the work we can do together.
