Educator, Workshop Facilitator, Professional Life Coach
I am an experienced educator, a professionally trained life coach, and a gifted workshop facilitator working to support families of alcoholics and addicts facing the enormous challenges a chemically dependent loved one brings. I am also someone with extensive personal experience with family addiction, and an ongoing practice with 12-Step spiritual principles, both of which I bring to bear in this important and powerful work.
