I am an experienced Behavioral Health Counselor & Life Coach with over 25 years of experience in the Addiction & Intervention field. I take a holistic approach to counseling with an emphasis on the Mind-Body-Spirit connection. Addiction is a disease that affects the entire person, & those around them. To this end, I work with the addict themselves, or in concert with their loved ones. I also understand that few of us make it through life without some type of trauma, & am prepared to help in this area as well. Your journey is your journey, & I look forward to joining you.Carl Whitaker likened the therapist to a coach & cheerleader. I agree, & feel that I also make an excellent cheerleader, who can accompany & guide a person on their journey of recovery. In addition, I bring my wealth of knowledge & experience, as well as my professional & community contacts.
