I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with twenty years of work experience in the mental health field. I began my work in crisis mental health at a residential facility, later working in agency settings helping people in crisis and longer term therapy. I am also a Certified Alcohol and Drug counselor with specialized skills in assessing and treating alcohol, drug, gambling, eating and sexual addictions. Ten years ago I began a private practice at Beaumont Health Care Clinic.
On a more personal note, I know some of the trials and joys of parenthood with a six year old daughter. I enjoy reading inspiring autobiographies, being outdoors, live music, meditating, and hiking and running.
