I have a specialty in addiction issues. I have extensive experience and education in the treatment of addictions am a dual licensed practitioner, a CDP otherwise known as a Chemical Dependency Professional and a LMHC, or a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington. Both licenses take several thousand hours of post graduate professional work, which I have completed. My experience also includes research at University of Washington Addictive Behaviors Research Center and clinical work at Harborview Mental Health and Addictions. I work with addicts in recovery. This requires a minimum of one year clean and sober from drugs and alcohol and an active recovery program and support system. I do not work with clients who are beginning their journey of sobriety, however I can offer an assessment and referrals.
