I am a Licensed Independent Psychotherapist and educator. I believe in creating positive change through Social Interpersonal Growth Psychotherapy, a humanistic approach to growth and self-acceptance. My areas of expertise include opioid/substance dependence, substance use education, medication assisted treatment education, and crisis intervention.
I have worked with substance use and opioid use disorders for many years in direct treatment, teaching, and curriculum development of addiction-related training materials and resources. I have experience working with adolescents, adults, and elder populations. I continue to work extensively with co-occurring psychiatric disorders such as Schizophrenia, Bipolar, Anxiety/Depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD).
My training includes Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Informed Care, Person Centered Therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution Focused Therapies.
I have a Ph.D. in Psychology, a M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology, and a MA in Behavioral Psychology. Post-Doctoral studies included understanding addiction as a chronic disease, treating addictions, and the Neuroscience of Addiction.
