About

edsc1061_8r-3

I am the owner and operator of Compassionate Beginnings, LLC, in Leesburg, Virginia.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) and Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) I offer Individual Counseling, SAP Evaluations and facilitate Structured Family Recovery ™.

With over twenty years of experience in the recovery process, My approach uses education, cognitive remapping, and Solution Focused Therapy.

Addiction does not stand alone. Underlying issues of trauma, developed defenses, and negative attachments are addressed in the healing process

Clients are engaged at a compassionate and realistic level. Using a 12 Step Foundation they learn about the importance of nutrition, meditation and body awareness to your recovery

My vision is to bring a new awareness to individuals who have struggled with addiction and to help them experience their unlimited potential.  I am dedicated to helping those who suffer from addiction to live a life of long-term recovery.

My mission is to give hope to those who feel they have lost hope due to alcohol or drug abuse. By engaging individuals in a “recovery” model I believe long lasting and successful sobriety is possible. My approach uses education, cognitive re-mapping, mindfulness, and coaching.

I also bring the importance of nutrition, exercise, and interpersonal engagement to every client. Addiction does not stand alone; underlying issues of trauma, developed defenses, and negative attachments are addressed in the healing process.

Above all, I believe in “recovery” – the return to our original selves.

Freedom from addiction – joy for life!
