About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker with a passion for supporting others in their journey toward lifelong recovery.  I am experienced in a wide range of areas working with vulnerable populations.


My life’s mission is to help individuals, families and communities heal from addiction and other mental health challenges.  With a passion for helping and supporting others in their journey toward lifelong recovery, I bring more than 19 years of experience working with clients and families, educating students, supervising clinicians and improving communities.


My commitment to research, ethics and best practices has made me a nationally recognized addiction expert. With multiple print, television and online appearances including CNN and the Economist, I am sought-after public speaker and presenter on the topics of substance use disorders and mental illness.


Additionally, I earned my Master of Social Work from the University of Michigan and my Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Illinois and is licensed in Illinois and California.
