My Expert Service

I am a LCSW and published author who specializes working with clients and families struggling with addictions, grief/tragic loss, and other life transitions (divorce, job change, move, loss of pet, etc.). I believe that nobody's story is too painful to be heard or healed. Contact me, and you will realize you are not alone; hope is always on the horizon. I believe that wherever there is breathe there IS hope, and I utilize this fundamental principle in my work with clients. My approach is empowerment-based and focuses on helping you help yourself to create the freedom and happiness you seek.
