Wildflower CS works with teens, adults, and families with conflict, mental health, and substance use issues anywhere in the family or social system. I am an individual & family therapist and SUD (substance use disorder) counselor, with 12 years of experience in mental health and SUD settings. I value being direct, honest, and supportive in my practice, and every part of my practice will always be LGBTQIA+ allied and affirming.
I enjoy working with individuals or families who want to find a healthier way to live. This could mean that as a parent, you are concerned for your child’s well-being–behavioral issues at home or school, or legal issues that have led to seeking out support. Or it could mean that as co-parents, you and your ex-spouse are seeking support and help to find a better way to care for yourselves and your children. Or as a teen or young adult, you find that your emerging values are at odds with those of your family or social system, and you seek acceptance and support.
Maybe you are leaving a program that helped you turn things around after your SUD brought you too many problems to manage on your own, and now you hope to find a regular support in the community that is a step down from the more intensive services you had received. Or, maybe after managing your SUD with an anti-craving/assisted recovery medication such as Vivitrol (Naltrexone), or Antabuse (Disulfiram), you are also ready to look closer at the underlying factors and motives that drove the use in the first place.
Wildflower Counseling Services is about a core concept: we are all flowers growing in the world, and even in the hardest conditions, we are meant to and able to grow and thrive. I also work with those managing grief and loss, teen identity development, launch/empty nest and “failure to launch” issues, mood disorder management, wellness, mindfulness, and self-care.
