I believe in the power of courage and self-determination. Too often we get stuck in the "Problem". With support, information, exploration and encouragement each of us can begin to live in the Solution. My experience as a Social Worker has allowed me to see lives change. We all have dark days and, we can find a place of "reasonable contentedness" and peace.

My practice offers general and specialized services to Individuals, Couples, Parents and Adolescents. Specific services address: Substance Abuse Assessment and Referral / Education on the addiction process / Redefining the myths and fears of the term "Alcoholic" / Familiarity with 12-Step Programs / Stage II Recovery / Post-residential treatment services.

I hope we get a chance to speak. I know change is hard - this is the first step. I am accredited by the National Association of Social Workers and licensed for practice by the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs in Mental Health and Substance Abuse.
