About

My primary focus is the individual, family or couple who are unhappy with the relationships in their lives; helping them uncover the dynamics of those relationships, find your solution, closure, journey and ultimately, their path to accepting themselves. These dynamics can manifest themselves in addiction, alcohol, abuse, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, developmental and challenges of transitioning to different life stages. I help empower people, from women with long term sobriety facing life stage issues to parents struggling with teens. I honor the trust and faith placed on me and am committed to assisting you to THRIVE.
Addiction is painful disorder which effects all major areas of a persons life and families are destroyed by it. Addiction frequently comes with depression, anxiety, codependency and emotional immobility. The journey of recovery can very difficult frightening, bewildering, and disappointing but so worth the freedom from the obessesion.
My focus regarding working with addiction is not solely on a person newly in recovery or trying to get there. I also work with those who have been in sobriety for a while and are facing other issues and needing a therapist would understands recovery and the 12 step process.
