I am an experienced substance use disorder counselor dedicated to helping newly or already recovered adults and family members adjust to and cope with life without substances.

Having worked in the field of recovery from substance use disorders for over 17 years I have treated more than 1000 clients. I offer individual, couples and family sessions for the recovering persons to help them now cope with various aspects of life without the use of substances. Areas to include but not limited to are: coping with anxiety, stress, healthy expressions of anger, setting and meeting goals, communication skills, resolving past roadblocks such as trauma, guilt, shame, resentments, building self esteem, boundary setting to name a few.
Keeping in mind substance use disorders (aka alcoholism and addiction) effect everyone as it is a family disease. Meaning everyone goes into recovery and needs to heal. With this in mind I also work with family members to rebuild trust, communication, setting healhy boundaries for self and others, and step away from codependency.
Everyone can heal, everyone can live joyfully and at peace in recovery. You can too! I am here to guide and support you in this. Virtual and in person sessions are avialable.
