Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

My specialties are treatment of trauma, addictions, and relationship problems. I worked as an addiction counselor and clinical supervisor at a residential alcohol and drug treatment center for seven years before going into private practice full time. I have learned many strategies for alleviating the painful response to traumas, past and present. I specialize in communication issues: how we talk to ourselves, what we hear from others and how we handle this, how we feel about ourselves in important relationships (family, work, friends, colleagues, lovers), how we treat others, and whether we can get what we want! I can help you learn to be successful in your problem relationships, especially in the relationship with yourself.
