Mental Health Counselor in Woburn, MA
Our unconscious mind is constantly scanning our world for threats, physical or emotional, so it can decide if it is safe (think fight/flight/freeze). It is only after this happens that conscious thought begins, which leads to our feelings. Once you begin to understand how this influences your feelings and behaviors, you can start to make changes and learn techniques to reduce your depression and anxiety so you can become a happier, healthier you.
Addiction is a disease and healing is possible. I support individuals to develop a plan to achieve abstinence and sobriety, to manage emotional and physical health, and to prevent further self-medication and relapse. For five years I worked at a drug treatment center, primarily with opiate addiction where I helped individuals find their unique path to recovery. I provide a comfortable, non-judgmental setting to help you overcome your dependence on substances and addictive behaviors.
LGBTQ individuals seek counseling for many reasons that may or may not be related to your sexuality or your gender identity. It is important that you have a therapist who you can discuss any area of your life without taking time to explain being LGBTQ. As a member of the LGBTQ community I have both the professional and personal expertise and experience to help you address the concerns you bring to counseling.
