Although I do a wide range of services, there are particular areas that I tend to specialize.
Couples and families affected by Substance abuse and dependence
Those plagued by anxiety and irrational fears
Over the years I have developed a particular interest in working with couples and families affected by substance abuse. I have been on both sides of the fence. With 30+ years sober I can still clearly recall the excitement and the tragedy of overdoing it most every weekend. At the same time, I grew up in a family that had many alcoholics and compulsions and was affected by the chaos and pain. These experiences help me to see both sides and get to work on solutions that work.
Having dealt w/ my own panic attacks and anxiety over the years, I have a special place in my heart for those that are racked w/ worry and irrational fears. Never made a lot of sense to me either. Still, they would appear when I least expected them. Or at times I would anticipate the worst and create the very situation I was trying so hard to avoid (self fulfilling prophecy). Much better now after coping with it for years. We can work together to systematically lessen the "busyness" in your mind and think more positive thoughts. More importantly you can take baby steps toward overcoming all those crazy rituals and stop avoiding life; Just like I have.
