As an addict in recovery since July 28, 1998, I have first-hand experience with the criminal justice system, drug and alcohol treatment and life in recovery. My unique perspective and insight, allows me to effectively deal with all the parties involved in the process. Whether it be families, clients, attorneys or the courts. I specialize in assessment, placement and court appearances on my client’s behalf. My adversity has become an asset, so that I can help others change their lives too.

My many years working as a professional within the mental health and substance abuse fields enable me to assist our clients with compassion and understanding. As an active member of Al-Anon, I am able to understand the specific needs of our clients and their families.
