The process of developing true self awareness and authenticity is a choice. It comes from reflection and a sense of safety, which is the beauty of therapy. While I specialize in addiction and borderline personality disorder, I work with a variety of issues such as relationships and codependency, eating disorders, anxiety, and mood disorders. I see children and adolescents, adults, families, and couples, as well as offer group therapy.
