I have been working with mental health and substance use population. My feelings are that as long as there is breath in your body there is always hope. Over the years I have developed the following qualities: strong clinical skills; working with dual diagnosis population; ability to problem solve by gathering and analyzing information and handling crisis situations and reacting appropriately. In addition, I have had over 20 years of supervising, training and mentoring staff. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my cat and dog. Most important is that I am close to my family and I can spend time with them.
