Addiction & Substance Abuse

Maybe you do not feel that you have a substance abuse issue, but you would like to sit down and explore your relationship with substance use. It can be beneficial to reflect on how you use substances to try to regulate your emotions or deal with pain, or even how you use substances to let go and forget about life for a while. Conversations like this can lead to a better understanding of yourself and how your substance use affects your life and the lives of those around you.

I know from personal experience that life can sometimes be very painful and challenging and that drugs or alcohol can seem like an easy solution. I myself have struggled with substance abuse issues and have used drugs and alcohol to try to lessen my physical pain and emotional suffering. I have found that drugs and alcohol are only a temporary solution that can lead to more issues down the road, but sometimes it is very difficult to stop once you are in that cycle.

People who do not have chemical dependence issues often do not understand just how hard it can be to stop drinking alcohol or using drugs to regulate your emotions. I understand how difficult this can be, and I understand it from both personal and professional perspective. I want to help you get control of your life back and live the life you want to lead.

Do you want to find freedom from the substance abuse issues that are holding you down? Do you want to better understand your relationship with drugs or alcohol?

I know that reaching out can be very difficult. I applaud you for having the courage to even try.

Life Coaching

As a life coach, I am here to help you make progress in your lives in order to gain greater fulfillment, accomplish goals and improve relationships, careers and overall happiness in life.

Working together, we can clarify goals you wish to attain, identify any obstacles that are standing in your way, and create strategies that will help you achieve each goal while overcoming any obstacle you meet.

I will target your unique skillset and make the most of your strengths while supporting you every step of the way.

Should I contact a life coach?

Many people ask themselves this question and end up finding great benefits from working with a life coach. If you find that you are frequently irritable, have high levels of stress or anxiety, struggle to break bad habits, or feel unfulfilled or dissatisfied with aspects of home or work life, you could benefit from working with a life coach.

Our Services

I customize my approach to you. I have a wealth of experience in the substance abuse arena. I can provide a safe, affirming, and supportive space to work through the issues you face or to simply talk about your substance use and the role it plays in your life.

I am highly experienced in helping people improve the quality of their lives, creating more self-worth, and finding meaning in their life by addressing substance abuse issues. As a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist, I am able to provide assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of substance use issues or a co-occurring mental health disorder. My work is grounded in substance abuse treatment, but self-improvement and healing underlying trauma leading to substance use are often part of this process.
