Addictions Counselor in Tucson, AZ
Supervised by Jill Fabian LISAC-10027

About My Clients

Addictions often originate from deeper underlying issues such as trauma/PTSD, chronic pain, psychosis, anxiety, and depression. I want to help you accomplish *whatever* goals/values that are uniquely important to you. Are you not sure what your goals or values are? No worries, we can work together to find out what these are. I genuinely want to help you put the hard work of therapy into achieving real growth.

My Background and Approach

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: We can work together collaboratively in softly challenging distorted unhelpful/exaggerated/unrealistic harsh judgements/thoughts/beliefs that appear during your distress. Just because we have a thought doesn't make it true. We can work together to accept uncomfortable emotions/physical symptoms rather than act harsh towards them. Our emotions, although sometimes misguided, are trying to help us and we can take a more thankful/flexible attitude of allowing them to be there even though they are very unpleasant. Self compassion is powerful! Treats chronic pain, psychosis, anxiety, depression, and addiction. Cognitive Processing Therapy: The average CPT-treated participant fared better than 89% of those in inactive control conditions at posttreatment and 82% at follow-up. CPT is a well-researched, manualized therapy proven to significantly reduce symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
