Life has recently shown me that curveballs are bound to happen with no warning whatsoever. COVID-19 was a clear example of that. This past year has shown me just how quickly life can be derailed and how pivotal it is for mental health professionals like myself to exist. I have spent the last year working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, biomedical issues, their various relationships, traumas from the past and present, family matters, and substance use.

I have worked in the field of addictions for over 15 years. People suffering from addictions and their families may have other underlying mental health issues such as trauma, depression and anxiety. Throughout my career, I have worked tirelessly with adults, adolescents, and as well as their families to address these issues and find a path to healing. My philosophy is simple: to treat the person in the surrounding environment, to see a person in the context of family, school, job, and community (and to evaluate the impact of these relationships), and to focus on the person's strengths as well as embrace their difficulties.
