Substance Abuse Disorders
Are you addicted to alcohol, drugs, gambling, shopping, shoplifting, technology, or other habits that are interfering with your life? Have friends or relatives talked to you about your addictive tendencies? Have you gotten in trouble with the law because of your addiction?
I am a licensed alcohol and drug counselor and hold a specialty certificate in problem gambling. I have worked in the field of addiction for over 10 years. I utilize evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). In addition to my private practice, I run an Intensive Outpatient Group using the Seeking Safety Curriculum, which is a trauma-based curriculum, The Matrix Manual, which is a CBT approach, and the Co-occurring Disorders Manual, which is focused on treating addiction in addition to mental health issues such as anxiety or depression.
I help clients to set goals, identify triggers, develop coping skills, build resilience and regain confidence.
