“I have a passionate life commitment and open heart for practicing addiction assessment, treatment, and recovery. My years of experience in facilitating individual, group, and family addiction treatment programs have given me insight into the core issues regarding addiction. It is my mission to understand my patient’s strengths, barriers, and issues in order to create a quality treatment approach that meets their specific needs. I offer a safe, confidential, and compassionate environment for therapeutic processing and healing. In addition to individualized treatment I feel very strongly about creating connections outside of treatment that will work to support and encourage a life of living in balance. Recovery is possible…I am here to help!”
Peace, Love, Hope.
