Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment can save your or a loved one’s life. People often hesitate to pursue life saving addiction treatment services because they are worried about the stigma attached to substance use and mental health disorders. In my 30 years of experience in the addiction treatment industry, including my tenure as Medical Director at Mountainside treatment center, I have aided over 10,000 people in their journey for sobriety. I currently oversee Mountainside’s Detox program, where clients can heal during the vulnerable early stages of recovery with the support of our dedicated medical team.

I work with clients who are interested in holistic and humanistic approaches to wellness. At the core of many disorders and symptoms, there is trauma and grief, and I support clients in their efforts to heal and construct a life that feels authentic. I typically see clients with depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief, life transitions, relationship difficulties, psychosomatic disorders and insomnia. I will also work with clients to find medications that are appropriate for them when needed.
