The Recovery Journey

 RECOVERY IS MUCH MORE THAN SOBRIETY AND ABSTINENCE. REMOVING THE ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUGS IS THE ESSENTIAL STARTING POINT FOR NEW LEARNING TO OCCUR. RECOVERY IS WHAT GETS ADDED IN TO TAKE THE PLACE OF THE TIME AND ENERGY THAT SUBSTANCES USED TO OCCUPY. DIFFERENT PEOPLE NEED DIFFERENT HELP AT DIFFERENT STAGES OF THEIR RECOVERY EVOLUTION. IT TAKES MORE THAN ONE BRICK FOR A SOLID FOUNDATION.

The First Step is Easy in Making Some Change

Contact me. Let me help you decide what kind of program would best suit you. My specialty is addictions counseling and behavior change, especially for people diagnosed with both substance use and mental health disorders. I am familiar with 12 step programs and love working with people in long term recovery to expand their program to new levels. I continue to work in local addiction treatment centers- interacting with people throughout the spectrum of care, from their  first day of detox to completion of long term treatment programs. I have been trained in contemporary cognitive behavioral therapies through the Duke "Advanced Blended Learning Curriculum for Contemporary Cognitive Behavioral Therapies". I also teach meditation and stress reduction for anyone or any group based on the MBSR model made famous by Jon Kabat Zinn. I offer professional development courses in cognitive behavioral therapies and mindfulness to professionals working to deliver therapy in Charlotte and other treatment and support services to combat the epidemic of addiction in Charlotte.
