My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a former volunteer and group facilitator with The Dougy Center, I have worked with children and their families as they navigate through their griefand loss and was honored and humbled as I witnessed their journey. I have over 30 years experience working with adolescents and adults suffering from substance abuse and mental health concerns. I work with individuals, couples, and families in a safe, supportive setting.

Techniques I Use


  • Couples Counseling External link

    I help all types of couples with navigating through their relationship issues. Offering support to people in relationships who may be considering separation or seeking improved intimacy and understanding. The relationship is the focus, although each partner should also expect to focus on self-improvement and self-awareness.

  • Holistic External link

    This approach offers healing on all levels - body, mind, spirit, emotion, when one area is out of balance it affects us entirely. I work with clients to regain their sense of self, regain their balance, and improve their quality of life.

Issues I Treat


  • Drug Dependence / Abuse / Addiction External link

    I understand the nuances of addiction and recovery - looking at the root cause of drug use and working from there on up helps my clients reduce feelings of shame and guilt. Helping them to make sense of 'why am I this way''?

  • Depression External link

    Whether you suffer from seasonal depression (SAD), or diagnosed with major depressive disorder - I offer help in sorting out the highs/lows and how to positively cope. Also help clients explore alternatives to treatment of depression other than medication only.
