Announcement icon Accepting new clients; 1st session w/in 1-2 days telehealth or in person. As a DOT Qualified SAP I can help with the return to duty process
Isn't it time for you to start feeling better quickly? I know that you are feeling overwhelmed by how out of control your drinking and drug use has become. Your family & friends have told you they are worried about you. You feel ashamed that you can’t stop this by yourself. Recovery is possible & does not happen all the same. As a retired binge drinker, I know how low, dark & depressing this disease of the mind can take you. However, I also know that this problem can be solved & quickly turn around and it doesn’t always mean going to 12 step meetings.
I have been helping others for the past 15 years learn skills to put into place to stop alcohol & drug abuse. I help clients learn to improve their mindset, self-esteem & confidence. I help clients quickly create a personalized recovery plan of skills that work for them.
My Master's Degree in Psychology- Addictions. I am a current member of the State of FL Project ECHO for Opioid Use Disorders & am also a DOT qualified SAP who can help those w/ CDL license issue. Clients who work with me show positive results quickly. Call (727) 815-6017 to schedule your free consultation & let's start getting this situation turned around.
