Do you have a high insurance deductible? Counseling can be more affordable than you think. I offer low cost, cash, and insurance HSA debit payment sessions.


What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?


I have several years of counseling experience helping people with Co-Occurring Disorders (Mental Health and Chemical Dependency). I believe in order to treat the mental health issues that we would need to address the substance abuse issues first. I know what it is like. I understand your pain. I can walk this journey with you with compassion, insight and understanding. It is possible to live clean and free from the torture of addiction and a mental health issue. Let me help you live a full and happy life.
