Drugs and alcohol can take over your life. Therapy can be a safe place to explore options if you or a loved one drink too much or are finding substance use to cause you problems. I can provide a substance use evaluation to help determine the severity of the problem and what steps would be advisable. I recognize that getting help for yourself or a loved one can be an anxiety-provoking experience. I will approach your situation in a non-judgmental but honest way.
I also work with teenagers who are drinking or using drugs. I involve the family frequently so family members can be advised about effective ways to manage these often overwhelmingly challenging situations. I can help parents find effect ways to be both firm and loving while getting their child the help they need.
