About

Congratulations, you've taken the first step toward emotional well-being. Seeking help is a sign of strength. The past few years have been a disorienting and tumultuous time. With recent landmark rulings it doesn't look like it will be getting easier anytime soon. But you don't have to go through it alone. I believe you'll find me empathic, curious and as a client once told me, "You care and you keep it real." I believe this to be true because this is my second career. My life experience has enabled me to walk in many people's shoes. Now I'd like to walk beside you on your journey.
I come from a long line of individuals who suffered both mental health and substance use disorders. I myself have been in recovery for 35 years. After years of advocating for the rights of those with these dual disorders I returned to school to begin the path that led me to where I am today. Wondering about the pup? She's here to support your recovery.
I work holistically. Mind, body and environment count. Together we'll turn problems into challenges with solutions Just call to learn how to get started. You don't have to know what to say. I'll ask a few questions and you'll decide if you want to take the next step and meet, virtually or in person.

Safe Space for Teachers

Are you a pre-k through 12 teacher struggling in a bureaucratic, political environment with administrators and parents all of whom know best? I'd like to offer you some solace and relief. To keep this simple I am offering this group on a sliding scale suggested donation basis of $0 to $50. Whatever you can afford (that means 5, 10 or 25 too). We will meet monthly (for now) on the last Wednesday of the month from 5:30 to 6:30 or 7pm by Google Meet which affords the best security. FREE first session July 27th.
