About My Clients

We all have our challenges. If your drug or alcohol misuse, abuse or addiction has been less than ideal (or devastating), I can support you in exploring, addressing, and overcoming this challenge. Substance use disorder is not a moral failing but a chronic brain disease and the effects ripple outward impacting family, friends, and community. We can explore underlying trauma, anxiety, or depression or focus more on removing present barriers to you living the life you'd like. Let's get started!

My Background and Approach

Hi, I'm Becca! I have been working in the field of behavioral health since 2010. I am a Certified Addiction Treatment Counselor and have a Masters in Social Work from San Jose State University with a focus on mental health. I have been serving people with drug and alcohol dependency, co-occurring disorders, and criminal justice involvement. My training allows me view the individual suffering from addiction within the varied systems - family, community, and beyond. Addiction doesn’t occur in a vacuum and we need our support systems to recover. I believe that anyone is capable of change when they stand at the intersection of being willing to take action and being met with the appropriate resources and support. My specialty is early recovery. Let me be the bridge to help you on your journey. I provide the knowledge, tips and tricks, tools, consistency and accountability to support you on your path. I value authenticity and transparency and strive to model these values throughout my life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in a balance between looking back at generational patterns and the root causes of our disturbances, and looking forward to a more comfortable tomorrow through the acquisition and utilization of practical tools for today. I am happy to provide that support for people
