Intervention My new home base is in the beautiful North Fork Valley of Colorado. I do travel and maintain a national practice, with a west coast base in Sonoma County, CA.  My main clientele tends to be in the western states, west coast, and Nashville TN.

My focus is how to best serve families and individuals seeking to be free of addiction, and hostage no more to its life destructive impacts. I accept one or two cases per month, working with the entire group in a process over time, setting realistic goals together and developing a recovery plan.
