How has your particular field of specialization evolved in recent years and how has that impacted your work?

I began addiction counseling in 1999. In 2006 I obtained my masters in counseling and became licensed to treat co-occurring disorders (mental health/addiction). Because I have been in recovery from anxiety, alcoholism, and codependency for over 26 years, I know first hand what it means to travel through the phases of recovery.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I am a firm believer if a person lives in their truth they will have the ability to be ok and secure in who they are. Coming to therapy helps a person come to terms with who they are, accept it, and then be able to move on with the coping skills they need to continue a healthy mental outlook.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

All therapy goals are directed by the patient. The patient will be asked what they want to gain from counseling. Everything is patient driven.
