I believe it is important to build a therapeutic alliance in order to foster a safe environment for you to explore change. I provide treatment for a wide range of mental health issues, with expertise in substance use, addiction and risky behaviors. If you are struggling with these issues, or depression, anxiety or mood disorders, I can help. I take a non-shaming approach, which is especially key for anyone with a history of trauma. I treat substance use, addiction, and risky behaviors utilizing an integrative harm reduction framework. Abstinence is not a requirement, nor does it have to be a goal. My license is in mental health counseling and I am internationally credentialed alcoholism and substance abuse counselor. I am also a certified OASAS trainer.
