"I started my career in substance treatment where I saw firsthand how addiction can destroy careers, families, and health. But it was also clear that addiction was usually not the primary issue; more often than not, using substances was how the person had learned to survive and cope with mental health issues or unresolved trauma. True healing comes not just from managing symptoms, but from uncovering, understanding, and processing the underlying issues and experiences that contributed to those behaviors in the first place. That is the goal that guides our work together."
