“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” - James Baldwin. Mental illness continues to be a taboo subject in many communities, despite the fact that it is a significant aspect of our overall health and well being. The fear that surrounds addressing mental illness leaves many people feeling silenced and isolated and can lead to physical illness overtime.

I have over 30 years of clinical experience working with substance use, mental health issues and other difficulties. When someone reaches out for support, they demonstrate great determination, hopefulness and personal courage to share in their private concerns.
