I have a vast history in substance use disorders and a strong handle on 12 step recovery. I have worked in inpatient and outpatient settings and have a working knowledge of families dealing with addiction issues. I have extensive experience working with adolescents and young adults with co-occurring disorders. I take a systems approach and think that communication is key to any relationship including the therapeutic relationship. I am an approved supervisor and believe that supervision should feel collaborative and supportive.
