I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE!
Who Am I?
As a licensed counselor who has personally experienced and recovered from addiction and an eating disorder, I bring a unique perspective to counseling. I understand the challenges, complexities and triumphs that accompany these struggles. My journey has enriched my professional practice, giving me a deeper level of empathy, insight and support allowing me to connect with you on a deeper level and provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you can openly discuss your experiences and concerns without fear of stigma or shame.
I have developed an understanding of the specific emotions, thoughts and behaviors associated with addiction and eating disorders. I offer a sense of hope and reassurance that recovery IS possible. I know what it feels like to face setbacks, doubts, depression and the anxieties of relapse. I believe in the importance of individualized care and am committed to tailoring sessions to address your unique needs and challenges. Drawing from my own recovery and professional training, I provide evidence-based interventions and therapeutic modalities customized specifically to addiction and eating disorders. I collaborate with you to explore the underlying factors that contribute to your struggles, address any unresolved traumas or emotional issues to help you develop healthier coping strategies and self-care practices.
Additionally, my experience in recovery has granted me a vast understanding of the importance of a holistic approach to healing. I recognize the interconnectedness of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being and will support you in cultivating balance across all areas. We will explore not only the symptoms but also the underlying causes, triggers and patterns associated with your addiction and eating disorder. I truly believe that my experience enhances my ability to help others in similar situations. I am here to walk alongside you, offering a unique blend of professional expertise and personal understanding.
