- Detox Counseling
While some people can truly benefit from antidepressants, they aren’t for everyone. If antidepressants are no longer providing you the right benefits or if you want to get off antidepressants due to pregnancy, I can help. When your brain gets used to antidepressants, it stops doing what it knows how to do naturally. I’ll help you retrain your brain and, working with your psychiatrist/doctor, will help you get off of your prescription medications safely and with as much support as you need. I have personal experience with this process, and while it’s no fun weaning off these drugs, believe me—it’s worth it. Pharmaceuticals aren’t the only answer!
- Substance Abuse Counseling
Is abuse of drugs, alcohol or prescription painkillers taking over your life? Do you feel like drugs and/or alcohol are your only form of relief or escape from stress, anxiety or depression? I have extensive experience working with folks who are trying to end a drug or alcohol addiction and live a sober life in recovery. I will help you navigate the pitfalls of getting and staying sober, and manage post-acute withdrawal syndrome, which is quite common—and scary, if you don’t know what to look for.
- Counseling for Individuals with Chronic Health issues
Having a chronic health problem often means having to make changes in your life that you might not have wanted to make. I know this from personal experience. I will work with you to help you find acceptance and offer healthy ways to cope. I will provide you the support you need to replace feelings of loss with appreciation for what you’ve been through and what life still has to offer.
- Counseling for Women Wanting to Start a Family
Starting a family is exciting, but it’s also stressful and challenging! You want to be at your healthiest and you know that the less prescription medications you’re on the better. I am here to support and guide you while you come off those drugs that could be harmful to your baby.
- Loved Ones of Addicts Counseling
Are you in a relationship with someone that abuses drugs or alcohol? Are you wondering how to be there for them without enabling or continuing to engage in the destructive cycle? We’ll discuss boundaries, codependency, your own self-care and your role in the world of an addict.
- General Counseling
I can help you with anything from anxiety and depression, to trauma and relationship issues.
- Pregnancy Detox Group Therapy
I run an on-going support group for pregnant and soon-to-be-pregnant women detoxing off of pharmaceutical medications. Here you can learn alternatives ways to manage depression/anxiety while connecting with others who are going through the same thing.
- “Shit Happens” – A therapy group for women living with chronic GI issues
This group is a closed group that I run for 6 weeks for women with Crohn’s, IBS, colitis, etc. These diseases can greatly impact your quality of life. This group is intended to help you learn alternative ways of dealing with your symptoms, including food as medicine, as well as the brain-gut connection and how your emotions affect your bowels (and vice-versa).
