Announcement icon Until the COVID-19 situation lifts, we will be offering Tele-Mental Health Counseling with Doxy.me, in an emergency go to the nearest ER.
I am a Licensed SubstanceCounselor specializing in working with those seeking a better physical and emotional life and overall well-being. I use empirically sound evidenced-based interventions to assist with your healing process. Over the past 22 years, I have been honored to work with those with Substance Use, Co-Occurring Disorders in sustained recovery. I hold a Master’s degree in Human Services from Lincoln University in PA and a PhD. in Psychology-Specialization in Edu from Walden University in Minnesota. Additionally, I am a Certified Domestic Violence Counselor treating batterer’s and protecting victims
My belief is that healing is possible and that all of us have the answers and solutions to troubling personal questions and stressful circumstances in our lives, but sometimes we all need a bit of support and guidance to find those answers. Recovery is an amazing and sacred journey, one that leads self-healing, self-fulfillment, and happiness.
I have been awarded The Lifelong Learning Award, Honors Awards from two different universities and given a membership in the Trademark Women Of Distinction Honors Edition (2017). My research has been noticed and validated by publication in a peer-reviewed journal in 2014, and was also published in “Chicken Soup for the Recovering Soul".
