My Approach to Helping
I would love to hear your story and work with you to find solutions. I am solution focused and I strive to provide immediate help whenever possible. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults, in the areas of addictions, codependency, relationships, mood disorders, anxiety and trauma. I am experienced in working with all addictive disorders, including substances, sex, love, relationships, pornography, technology and gambling. I enjoy supporting family members who are dealing with a loved one's addictionrecovery, and I have previously directed two Family Programs in treatment centers. I have extensive experience supporting the LGBTQ+ community (including gender issues) and am also a member of the community.
I have been on my own journey of recovery from alcoholism since 2001 and I have three grown sons; one son who is also in recovery. My interests include fitness, hiking, traveling, tennis and spirituality.

I graduated from St. Mary’s University with M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and earned a B.S. from Texas A&M University. As a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC), I have worked in a variety of settings, including residential treatment centers, psychiatric hospitals, partial hospitalization programs, and outpatient programs.
