I am a Master Certified Addiction Professional who specializes in alcohol and drug addiction counseling. I am SASSI-4 certified to conduct Alcohol and Drug evaluations. My focus is to counsel the whole person on substance abuse from the mental, physical, and social capacities. I am an expert in counseling clients with issues related to the misuse, abuse, and dependency of alcohol, illicit drugs (such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, etc.) and prescription medications (such as opiates – pain pills, etc.).I use an array of counseling techniques and strategies that are individualized for each client and their treatment needs. For example, I may combine the use of cognitive behavior therapy and the rational/irrational thinking models to help clients better understand how distorted thinking may hinder their success during treatment.I offer face-to-face counseling in the client’s home and/or online counseling through Skype. I conduct SASSI-4 alcohol and drug evaluations for clients who may be court-ordered or for employment purposes.
