I greatly enjoy helping families cope with addiction. Certification as a Master Addiction Counselor allows me to use specialized training to educate entire families about addiction. It is important to process the effects of addiction in a non-judgmental environment.and that's the way I like it best. I help you get to recognize the origins of addiction, its manifestations, and more specifically how to overcome addictive behaviors.
DBT and Anxiety
I have completed a 5 month intensive training in Dialectical Behavioral Training (DBT) under the instruction of Dr. Michael Maslar. DBT is a cognitive behavioral treatment developed by Marsha Linehan to treat Borderline Personality Disorder which has since demonstrated effectiveness in the treatment of a trauma and host of stress related disorders. In practice, DBT can be utilized to improve focus, decrease anxiety and stabilize mood and emotional understanding.
