Message to clients

I believe that we can all improve our lives and learn to manage our emotions. I enjoy helping clients experience improvement in their lives, their relationships and their employment. I know that addiction can negatively impact lives in countless ways and have worked to help overcome addiction, trauma, abuse, homelessness, unemployment, etc. I have significant training in abuse and trauma. Seeing clients work through these problems and take control of their lives is a a constant source of joy for me.
