My ideal client is anyone who wants a life that is fulfilling and fun to live. I am an acupuncture physician, a licensed mental health counselor and an addictions specialist who specializes in the treatment of individuals recovering from life. After twenty years of experience, I believe that self-esteem, not drugs, alcohol, food, another person, or a myriad of other things that individuals depend upon to make themselves feel better, is the root issue of most life issues. I focus on learning how to feel good from within and employ a holistic approach to healing the whole person.My specialty is a holistic approach to the treatment of alcohol and drug dependency which includes group and individual counseling, hypnosis, nutrition and medical foods, acupuncture treatments, bioelectrical testing and more.I treat alcohol and drug dependency by not focusing on alcohol and drug dependency. I focus on learning how to feel good about oneself, learning how to have fun and socialize without alcohol and drugs, and how to change one’s thinking to change one’s feelings and behaviors.
