When problems arise in our lives and relationships, it's frequently due to a lack of balance in work, love and/or play. I WILL help you see where you are "out of balance," and assist you in exploring options to regain stability, control and therefore, contentment. I am direct, honest, warm and humorous, and try my hardest to meet you where you are at in your journey.
While the bulk of my experience has been in substance abuse, chronic pain, sex addiction, compulsive stealing and eating disorders, living a sober life is much more than "simply" not giving in to your cravings. A clean and sober life means facing life without the protective shield of alcohol, drugs, food, sex, spending, etc.
I do not demand abstinence nor 12 Step participation (although insurance carriers may require attendance). Also, I can help with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and with a desire to better understand yourself and why you make the choices that are not always in your best interest.
