Recently, I found myself telling a friend that while I haven't been in the profession for long, I have always been a therapist. I know that I am now doing what I was meant to do. I have been deeply affected by addiction in every possible way so specializing in this area is a natural fit. Three years ago, I lost my firstborn son in a tragic accident. Surviving my greatest fear has deepened my spiritual foundation and given me a greater sense of purpose. I am so grateful that any wisdom I have gained from facing various challenges in my life can be brought to my practice. I aspire to always be growing personally and professionally and am committed to bringing love and light to my work. 

Truly, it is in the darkness that one finds the light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest of all to us.
