You Can Place Your Addiction in Remission

When I was deeply addicted to drugs and alcohol, the endless cycle of reckless behavior, brief glimpses of hope, and despair when it all started again were all I could see.

Whatever addiction you or a loved one are fighting, I know what you’re suffering through, and I can help.

After successful recovery, I've helped countless addicts and their families move toward happier lives. Now, I use my gentle, invitational style Addiction Counseling Program and Interventions to ease addicts into recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a licensed addiction specialist?

A licensed addiction specialist is a trained mental health professional, who helps people overcome their struggles with drugs and alcohol or their addictions to sex, pornography, or any other habit that is negatively impacting their lives.

Do I have to check into rehab?

Not necessarily. Addiction treatments look different for everyone. We’ll work together to create a personalized plan to get your life where you want it to be. That may involve some time in an addiction treatment center, or it may simply involve addiction counseling.

Is it impossible to overcome addiction?


No! Millions of people have found new lives after addiction. I’ve helped addicts recover for decades, and I’m confident we can find a solution for you, even if you’ve struggled with your addiction for years.

What is the first step of drug addiction treatment?

The first step is the hardest: reaching out and looking for help. But if you’ve come this far, you’re only a call or a click away from completing the first step! Then, we will meet to schedule a free 20-minute appointment to figure out how we can place your addiction in remission together!

Would Counseling Help Your Recovery?

Many people successfully recover from addiction through diligence and with proper support. Being diligent about recovery requires each person to include proven physical, spiritual, and therapeutic interventions in their ongoing recovery plan. Changing habits, remaining abstinent, learning new life skills and resolving the hurts of the past are all components of achieving long term recovery and avoiding relapse.
