The effects of substance and alcohol abuse can not only effect the abuser but a multitude of others including family and friends. I specialize in substance and alcohol abuse and mental illness. Obtaining a Master’s Degree in Social Work from New York University and becoming a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor due to working in various alcohol and drug facilities; provided me the tools to help build a strong therapeutic alliance with clients. Some therapeutic techniques I provide are CBT, long term dynamic therapy as well as taking a trauma focused approach dealing with childhood, teen and adult development.
While having eight years experience working with substance abuse and mental health populations, it is my passion working with clients who are dually diagnosed, have acute mental health disorders or suffer from substance and alcohol abuse. I also work with friends and families who struggle with loved ones suffering from substance abuse and mental illness
Taking a motivational interviewing approach allows the client to see his or her own strengths while improving their overall quality of life. This therapeutic technique empowers clients to see their full potential.
