Recovery Counseling can help you learn the skills you need to develop, navigate and maintain, a strong program of recovery that is based on your strengths, wants, needs beliefs, and preferences. Recovery is a lifelong journey that can bring many challenges along the way. Recovery Counseling can teach you how to maximize the joy and minimize the struggles along the way. I can help you identify your triggers and stuck points in each stage of recovery and develop plans to successfully work through them.
I believe that recovery services should be developed using a person centered approach, and I believe that it is my job to tailor my services to you. I will help you identify your concerns, issues and struggles related to your substance use and how it has impacted your life. Then I will help you to use the information to set recovery goals that are consistent with your wants, needs, believes and preferences, which will assist you in achieving the life that you have hoped for and dreamed of. Finally, I will help you develop and maintain your own individualized recovery program.
As a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor, I will use my educational and professional expertise to help you map out your long term recovery goals and help you explore and resolve any difficulties you may encounter along the way. I offer a safe, comfortable and supportive environment to help you feel as much at ease as possible, even when talking about difficult issues.
