The connection between client and counselor becomes the safe container in which an individual can explore their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, values, and struggles. Once safety and trust are established, we will work collaboratively to clarify your values and goals. It is within safety and clarity that we can create change and find hope and healing.
Counseling modalities utilized:
I operate from a Harm Reduction Model in order to meet the client where they are in their life concerning drug and/or alcohol use. There are many paths to wellness; I will not push abstinence unless YOUR GOAL is abstinence. I can create safety plans, moderation plans, and/or abstinence plans.
Many people experience very difficult moments during their lives. Some of these moments can turn into trauma, which is a physical experience of the nervous system and the body. This experience can create change in the brain, to include thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to assist people in healing their nervous systems from these types of injuries. EMDR is highly effective and can create rapid, positive outcomes.
