I became motivated to pursue a career in psychotherapy through my lived experience as a recovering addict. I began this work twenty years ago as a peer counselor at the facility that helped me get clean and I am fortunate to have had a rewarding and successful career in the mental health field which includes working for 16 years as a fully licenced therapist, managing psychosocial rehabilitation programs, running my own professional training company, and doing research on college preparatory models for adults with severe mental illness. My specialities include treating severe and persistent mental illness, chemical dependency, compulsive gambling, and trauma-related disorders.
My approach to psychotherapy is very client-centered and while I am eager to learn and apply a wide variety of treatment modalities I believe this work is highly individualized. I enjoy working with a diverse client base and my priorities are to build strong relationships and work with clients to apply their individual strengths towards whatever life challenges they are seeking to overcome.
Cost for individual therapy: $155
