Where do you turn? Who can help? Life feeling out of control?

Substance use can start anywhere, from celebration, grief, loss, or experimentation.  Continued use can lead to abuse and loss of control, which can affect all areas of life including family, career, health, relationships and even our emotional/mental health.  


There is a way out of the chaos and you have come to the right place.  I  have compassion, understanding, knowledge and experience working with clients whose lives are affected by substances in all sorts of capacities. I have a passion for teaching clients  how to reduce the shame and take action to restore health in their life.  

I am able and willing to help you understand how and why this may be happening and how to help you return to a life of balance.  A life where health, wellness and peace is at the center.  Feel free to join a peaceful  life today.
