When an individual is abusing substances, often times it manifests itself as chaos, unpredictability, and complete confusion. As a result, not only is the individual tormented, but the suffering extends to their family and loved ones. When this happens, confusion, anger, fear, and other uncomfortable emotions frequently arise in all parties involved, as a solution to this overwhelming problem seems unfathomable. To compound this issue, the substance abuse treatment industry can be incredibly difficult to navigate. Having worked in a wide variety of substance abuse treatment settings, I can help with this process.

My practice was born out of a tradition of commitment to children. From familial and professional roots I have witnessed the value of creating a safe space to allow children to explore and grow. Beginning my career as a teacher, I have watched and marveled at the ways in which children learn and flourish in nurturing environments. As a child therapist I have also seen children suffer when their needs go unmet.
