About

I specialize in treating survivors! So many of us have endured abuse, trauma or self induced addictions. Many of us are haunted by our past or stuck in our current situations. How do we balance our hectic lives emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually? How do we find peace, happiness and fulfillment, or at least the absence of anxiety and depression? If you are not happy with your life, sometimes a little help is all it takes. Let me assist you in doing more than just surviving, but in thriving and finding your best life!
My experience includes: addiction counseling, intervention, veterans with PTSD, same sex couples, families, teens and children aged 5 to 17. Also I have facilitated groups with the following issues: Anger Management, Parenting, Domestic Violence, sexual trauma survivors, various mental health disorders and health issues.
My own experiences have shaped me into the compassionate, caring therapist I am today. From growing up in an alcoholic family, to two adult children that are multicultural, & one in same sex relationship. I experienced two long term marriages, lost two sons; one at birth & an accident took the other.. Most recently I have survived breast cancer.
