I am a licensed clinical social worker with over a decade of experience. I specialize in mental health wellness with a concentration on substance use and psychiatric disorders. As a faculty member for Gorski CENAPs I teach and share ways that I have used his model both with clients and personally as a person in long term recovery. Previously, I was a professor at California State University East Bay teaching Masters level students clinical theory and skills. My greatest honor though has been my service as a Marine where I learned leadership, the importance of camaraderie, and how to access resilience even when I felt defeated.

Your path may have become difficult to navigate or there may be things that you are challenged with in your life. We can all benefit from help but asking for help sometimes can be difficult. Together we can work to uncover and discover a deeper, more aware and authentic self. There are solutions to the problems or challenges you are facing. As a therapist, I have several years experience working with individuals and family members affected by addictive patterns, substance use and abuse, depression, anxiety and trauma. I also have experience working with couples or individuals dealing with various marital/relationship challenges.

I am also a SUDRC, with experience working in outpatient treatment for substance use disorders.
There may be so many painful and powerful memories that brought you here, stringing along with them the thoughts and emotions that continue to have a negative toll on your daily life. You disconnect, you zone out, you freeze, you run. You may have asked yourself, “Why can’t I just let all of this go and move on?” People in your life may have asked you the same question. Maybe you already tried to take care of the issue yourself, you tried going down so many different avenues to heal and you worked doing so. I’d like to honor that. Now you’re here, trying a different path. So, let’s let's try something new. We'll travel together.

Parenting hacks: Is it challenging to communicate with your teen about specific issues or topics, such as teen sex, academics, and substance use? These conversations can feel overwhelming for both parents and teens.
