I am a highly respected licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who received my Master’s Degree from the University of Southern California and has been practicing in the fields of addiction, trauma, death/dying and grief for over thirty years.
I combine my experience in trauma/grief and blend it with my knowledge of substance abuse to provide the clients with a comprehensive treatment plan for the recovery of the whole person. I have always recognized that addressing the underlying core psychological issues is essential to achieving successful long-term recovery. The development of programs for trauma patients struggling with significant life changes has been an important focus.
