ADULT CHILDREN OF ALCOHOLICS

Working with Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACoAs) requires a special sensitivity and expertise.  I provide both. 

No one’s life is the same, and every family is different.  However, there are certain characteristics typical to relationships with alcoholic/addicted parents and partners. This is true even if they are no longer abusing drugs and alcohol. Growing up with a substance abusing caregiver not only impacted your relationship with them, but also how you view yourself and your patterns of relating with others now.  

I understand the constellation of addiction in families and the remnants it leaves.  Through a combination of psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive interventions, and EMDR, I will help you work through your childhood experiences and understand how they affect you today. Together, we will help you process your past while living in the present and building a meaningful future.
