The consulting, training and coaching services I offer are the culmination of my personal and professional journey in chronic pain management since 1982. I have a Bachelors Degree in Behavioral Science, a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology and a Doctorate in Addictive Disorders. I am also a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, (LMFT) a past California Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC-II), and a current Advanced Relapse Prevention Specialist (ACRPS).
I have been working with people suffering from chronic pain and coexisting problems for almost four decades, as well as training Healthcare Professionals since 1996. Because I have learned how to thrive with my own pain condition, I understand better than most the challenges and pitfalls of how to develop effective pain management and relapse prevention plans.
