BRING A SMILE BACK TO YOUR FACE. Having been a licensed mental health therapist, life coach and substance abuse counselor for over 30 years, I work with individuals, couples, families and blended/step families in a genuine, respectful and caring manner. I assist you by empathetic listening in a no-judgement atmosphere and teach skills and techniques that can be used for the rest of your life. Some of these skills are in relationship issues, communication, anger management, anxiety control, depression, substance abuse and relapse prevention just to mention a few. I love what I do and I do it well.
I am an advanced practice mental health nurse & a certified blended/step family & substance abuse counselor. Treatment is of the mind, body and soul. I continuously further my knowledge by education and readings to ensure reliable, updated information, statistics and techniques. By doing so I have a high rate of grateful and successful clients.
Married 39 years, having children, grandchildren and elderly parents, coming from a blended family, presented different challenges. Life is a roller-coaster vs. a merry-go-round. There are easy and difficult times but the most important fact is how one goes through the journey. Work involves positive change by strengthening weaknesses and enhancing strengths.
