My Expert Service

I am a dual-mastered clinician and published author who currently treats clients and families struggling with addictions, grief/tragic loss, and other life transitions (divorce, job change/loss, move, pet loss, etc.) I believe that nobody's story is too painful to be heard or healed. Contact me, and you'll realize that your story matters and you are no longer alone. I practice under the belief that wherever there is breathe, there IS HOPE, and I treat my clients accordingly. No matter what your current crisis or challenge, I will be honored to listen and to respond in a way that empowers you to help yourself find the freedom and happiness you desire.
