“I had so much pain and shame that I have carried for years and now I feel like it has been released and I will be able to live a happy life.”

The Core Issues focused therapy I provide is specifically designed to be a single treatment protocol for the healing and recovery of a multitude of clinical issues including, Addiction / Co-Addiction, Drug or Alcohol Abuse, Depression, Anxiety, Eating Disorders, Co-Dependence and Intimacy and Relational Problems.

My methods provide healing and recovery in a fraction of the time and expense of most inpatient, outpatient and residential programs. Therapy consists of 3 or 4 full day in length sessions and 12 to 48, fifty minutes in length weekly or biweekly sessions for additional therapeutic work, support and practice. Clients report immediate results after our first full day session.
