About My Practice

Office Hours
Services
I have more than 30 years of experience supporting families through educating, creating, and facilitating children and parent groups. My practice specializes in providing counseling for families recovering from drug and alcohol abuse, sober parentng, and children of parents with alcohol and substance abuse problems. I also provide pain solutions and addiction treatment, and pre-operative support counseling at DISC Sports and Spine for pre- and post-surgery patients and their families. Through education and collaboration, I works with patients who suffer from the effects of chronic and intermittent pain, and/or patients preparing for and recovering from surgery. Having had ten spinal surgeries over the last 25 years, and intermittent chronic pain for more than 30 years, I am inspired to share my proven methods for pain control to provide the most understandable and accessible low stress solutions for people in pain.
