My Approach to Helping

“Hope is passion for what is possible!” -Kierkegaard
Life can be challenging; sometimes we just need a little help to get through a particularly stressful time.

I offer a gentle, accepting environment to assist you or your family navigate issues related to addiction, relationships, life transitions, parenting, or journeying through adolescence, especially while dealing with substance use issues. I will work collaboratively with you to find ways to address all challenges related to living life on life's terms particularly when dealing with alcohol and drug use, my chosen area of specialization.

Together we will come to understand your strengths, develop your ability to access those strengths and gain skills to live a life worth living, to find meaning in your existence. You are the expert on your own life, and my job is to listen for understanding. There are many paths toward overall wellbeing; you and I will work to find what path may be best for you.

I have a MA in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist as well as a Substance Use Disorder Certified Counselor. Additionally, I have two master’s degrees in education, and I am a certified educator with decades of experience teaching all ages from preschool to graduate school. I started my career as an accountant and businessperson before I became a teacher, a teacher and parent educator, a school principal and ultimately a psychotherapist. As a therapist, while my focus is on addictions, I have worked with parents, teachers, and business leaders to address the day-to-day stressors of their work and their lives. I have traveled and done educational presentations throughout the United States as well as in Australia and China. I have lived in nine different states, been married for 36 years and have raised three children. I love spending time with family, being in nature, scuba diving and all animals; I especially love spending time with my two rescue dogs, Bear and Freya, and two semi-feral rescued cats, Bender and Fry. My pronouns are he him his.
