Soon, when all is well, you’re going to look back on this period of your life and be so glad that you never gave up.

Brittany Burgunder

I pride myself on being more than just someone to listen, but someone to help you look at things a different way and begin living the life you want.

It all starts with a thought from you “Maybe I need some help with this.”, and then a fresh perspective from me. Together we start gaining an understanding of the addiction or substance abuse problem, or the challenges you are facing in recovery. From there, focusing on your well-being, mental and emotional health, and physical wellness comes into play like never before. You’re taking the first steps on a journey, but you’re not taking them alone.

Whatever obstacles and struggles someone may be going through in life, I consider it a privilege to help them deal with. I understand that the clients I see are entrusting me to give them the right resources to guide them down a new path, with a new perspective, so they can achieve their own goals. With a healthy balance of listening, guiding, and even learning, I take pride in using my own experience with addiction and mental illness, and resources to help people really start off on the right foot on that path to recovery. Whether you, or someone you know struggles with an addiction or substance abuse problem, or you simply want a different outlook on life, it’s something to work through together, and by setting up a consultation, we can get started.

As a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, my role is to guide you as you take steps towards positive life changes, healing, and a fulfilling life in recovery. Together we’ll work to uncover and better understand life’s challenges and day-to-day stressors that detract from you living the life you want, and begin identifying and practicing things that will make you stronger personally and in recovery.

I consider all my clients to be more than just another name, or an appointment. Counseling is meant to be a completely individual experience, and I treat it as such, with deep compassion and absolutely no judgment. Not only do I want to provide support and encouragement for each of my clients, but it’s my goal to offer them practical resources that they can put into practice immediately in their lives. I used both modern approaches and tried and true methods to fit each client’s individual needs with understanding, no matter who they are, or their particular walk of life. Everyone can achieve more personal growth, strength, and recovery and it’s an honor to work on that together.
