About

I work with people who are feeling overwhelmed and stressed; are being held back by anxiety or depression; are concerned about their drug and/or alcohol use; or are trying to support someone with substance use issues. I understand that these issues can be complex and multifaceted. I work with people to manage their issues while learning new coping skills, building their self-esteem and capacity using their strengths in order to achieve their goals.
I have over 18 years experience working with people with complex issues including mental health, substance abuse and trauma to name a few. I have a gentle, compassionate non-judgmental approach. I have a passion for helping people feel valued, and loved and to live the life they were created to live.
If you need support, someone to talk to, or are concerned about your (or someone close to you) mental health or substance use please contact me via email or text message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
