Substance Use & Harm Reduction
Despite popular discourse on addiction, your substance use is not a black and white issue. You don't necessarily have a disease and your uncertainty about abstinence doesn't mean you're in denial. So take a deep breath.
In our work together, I will help you explore how your drug use helps and how it hurts. We'll work collaboratively to experiment with individualized strategies to reduce any problematic substance use or quit altogether if that's what you want. Along the way, you'll develop healthier ways to cope.
I offer a space that is non-dogmatic, where you can share your struggle without receiving ultimatums and prescriptions.
