With a unique background in both Eastern and Western medical practices I am passionate about working with clients from managing acute conditions to reaching long term physical and psychological wellness goals. I have been working in the field of addiction treatment for over 20 years and am licensed to practice in Connecticut and New York as an Acupuncturist and as a Clinical Social Worker. I am also Licensed in Connecticut as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor and am the sole provider in the State with this combination of credentials.

I maintain relationships with many substance abuse treatment providers in the community including inpatient and outpatient facility-based programs, detox programs, psychiatrists and suboxone providers. When a higher level of care is indicated, I provide comprehensive case management services to connect you with appropriate programming.
