LAADC-CA, NCAC II, SAP

I have been specializing in addiction counseling since 1985. I work not only with those directly suffering with Substance Use Disorder, but also with their families and loved ones. Treating alcohol and other drug misuse, along with problems it causes – family problems, job problems, financial problems, legal problems, spiritual problems – has been the sole focus of my counseling practice for over 30 years.

Telehealth &
In-Person Counseling

Prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, I converted to online counseling (Telehealth) and it continues to be a large part of my practice.

I do telehealth sessions through a HIPAA-secure platform that protects your confidentiality.  Telehealth sessions require a good internet connection and some basic computer skills.  Meeting online offers convenience and increased flexibility in scheduling.

Through an online client portal, I also offer secure communication, submission of forms and assignments, and payment for services.

I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation to determine if we are a good fit and our schedules match. Please call and I will return your call promptly
