About

I am a dedicated and highly skilled certified addiction specialist with advanced certification and work experience in addiction, dual diagnosis, and co-occurring disorders. I enjoy helping others to improve their communication skills and feel empowered. Being able to empower others to develop fresh insights about their lives is a skill that I have acquired from my own life experiences. Learn how to make healthier choices, develop coping strategies to manage distress. I am committed to prioritization of the skill sets and techniques that will assist the client with overcoming addiction—meeting challenges with innovative solutions.
Because of my experiences in life and becoming a certified addiction specialist, my most precious skill is the ability to listen, show compassion, being empathetic, nonjudgmental, and my own past life experiences. Everyone has a purpose in life, and I want to be a part of the process that will assist others with their long and short-term goals in recovery.
I’m confident that together I can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you face and overcome these challenges. If you struggle with overcoming addiction, low self-esteem, anger management, or positive parenting, I am here to assist you with becoming self-sufficient and accomplishing your treatment goals.
