Certified Trauma Professional and Behavioral Addictions Counselor
My hope is to help you toward self-empowerment and growth in the wisdom you’ve already acquired. We will work together to help you manage life stressors, including work life, PTSD and to heal grief. Relationships can be tough and sometimes a person outside the system can shine light on ways to negotiate and resolve problems.
