    About Me

    I've been successfully facilitating both family and workplace Interventions for over twenty years.  I have offices located in the Santa Cruz and San Francisco Bay Areas,  but I conduct Interventions, family workshops and professional trainings throughout California and the United States.

    I've worked in a variety of treatment settings: outpatient, residential and inpatient.  In those capacities, I've conducted thousands of assessments for both addicted individuals and their families, assisting with Intervention and treatment planning.
