(619) 507-1699 E-mail me here

I specialize in helping families who have a loved one who is experiencing a substance abuse or mental health disorder. I have for the past 30 years specialized in respectful, caring invitational interventions that facilitate loved ones getting to appropriate treatment centers. In doing so, I specialize in assessments, treatment planning and solution focused coaching.

I work with a highly specialized team who can also help with legal issues such as alternative sentencing, transportation, case management, sober companionship, coaching and monitoring. I also work in a consultant role with other mental health providers who seek guidance on clients with substance abuse and mental health disorders.
