How I CAN HELP
I work with individuals who are struggling with Substance Abuse Disorders. As an addiction counselor, I feel that I am uniquely qualified due to maintaining 16 years in recovery, which tends to help clients feel safe. I am compassionate because clients need to experience acceptance instead of judgment.
Most individuals in addiction suffer with shame, guilt, and low self-esteem. They also tend to have a misunderstanding of what causes addiction. My purpose is to help them find a new way of life.
