About My Clients
Are you struggling to understand why you can’t quit alcohol or other substance even though you’ve had significant success in other areas of your life? Would you describe yourself as a “functional alcoholic?” Would your peers, coworkers, and even some family members be stunned to discover the lengths you’ve gone to secure pills, coke, or some other drug? I work with professionals who want to understand the nature of their substance abuse problem and develop a discreet treatment plan.
My Background and Approach
I am a multi-credentialed professional with a background of working with a diverse client base ranging from severe chronic mental illness to assisting persons with career change. My specialty helping professionals evaluate and understand the nature of their substance abuse problem and building a holistic treatment plan to treat the issue emerged when I ran Intensive Outpatient and observed that professionals do not have enough access to evidence based, discreet, custom treatment planning.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I know what it’s like to live two lives; one that looks like the epitome of success using traditional barometers but to be consumed on the inside with guilt, shame, and terror that you can’t use the same resources that created your external success to conquer the internal battle of substance abuse. I want to help you be able to use your existing strengths, your proven track record in ways that support recovery from substance over-use, substance abuse, or addiction. It is my passion to help professionals match their education, training, abilities, and daily habits with their values and integrity and to elevate their lives and transcend the quagmire of substance abuse.
