About

Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment can save your or a loved one’s life. Reaching out for help can be daunting but recovery is attainable. In my 15 years of experience in the addiction field, including my tenure as Vice President of Program Development at Mountainside treatment center, I have aided over 10,000 people in their journey to sobriety. As Principal of Program Development at Mountainside, I am in charge of creating a true integrative health model of treatment. With a strong understanding of client needs, I develop and oversee the execution of new and effective treatment modalities into programming for every level of care.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor. I hold a Master of Science in Counselor Education, with a focus in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I ensure opportunities for client empowerment are accessible to all.
Everyone deserves a compassionate therapist. We will work together to create an environment that is comfortable and collaborative. We will develop an individualized treatment plan that prioritizes your goals, health and wellness, and personal development in order to help you where you are in your journey. I look forward to hearing from you!
