Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, disassociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. Brainspotting works with the deep brain and the body through it direct access to the autonomic and limbic systems within the body’s central nervous system.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a short-term, problem-focused form of behavioral treatment that helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and free them from unhelpful patterns of behavior.

As an addiction counselor, I specialize in working with people who struggle with dual diagnoses, or both mental health diagnoses and addiction. I will address the root causes of your addiction and the related areas of impaired functioning, and together we’ll structure the time and content of your ongoing recovery.
More often than not, drug addictions start with experimental use of a drug in social situations. And for some people, the drug use becomes more frequent. As time passes, a person may feel the need to use more of a drug to get their desired high, and soon a person may need the drug to simply feel “good.” I believe that there are many paths to successful recovery that will work with your goals and desires, and ensure you can make the life changes you want to make.

Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to once again have hope for their lives.
