Counselor , PhD , Psych, MA , Coun, RCT

Life Happens... We can help. I have 30+ years' experience, the last decade specializing in problem gambling and process addictions. I work extensively with families/members with a variety of addictions, in the process developing an expertise in working with survivors of trauma and family violence. These often underlie addictions whether they are to substances or processes like gambling, shopping, sex, or the internet. I work in a caring and sympathetic manner that makes counselling safe and inviting. Additionally, I have a special interest in working with people diagnosed as borderline, depressed, suicidal, or as adult children of alcoholics (ACOA).
While I have been trained as a "family systems" therapist I first started therapy over 30 years ago as a behaviorist/cognitive behaviorist working with individuals/families with children and youth with behavioral problems. Since then I have developed my own eclectic style using humor and patience to get results.
I see individuals with/without their significant other or the larger family unit and specialize in flexible options, making time available in extended blocks to meet your needs. I see counselling as a journey. I am your consultant/travel guide. I have the experience, but it is your trip.
