A bit about me

You deserve a joyful life.
I can help you create that life.


At the age of 35, I had a wonderful family, lovely home, supportive husband, and great career. Yet, day after day, I found myself counting the minutes until I could have my next glass of chardonnay.

I grew tired of living my life that way. I knew something had to change. Today, I no longer feel the compulsion to reach for that glass of wine. I’d like to share the freedom I’ve obtained as a result of letting go of alcohol’s grip over me. It wasn’t easy, and I could not do it alone. But I can help you.

I have 18 years of experience in life, career and recovery coaching in Hunterdon and Somerset Counties, New Jersey.

With a Master’s Degree in Teaching from Brown University and certification in Alcohol and Drug Counseling, I’ve taught hundreds of people how to transform their lives.

Recently, I also opened an office in Jackson, Wyoming. Now, with the growing availability of video conferencing, I can help you no matter where you live.


Sometimes alcohol can get in the way of self-fulfillment and self-actualization.

But—with the right practices, support, and mindset—it can possibly be a part of your life.

Whether you want to manage your use of alcohol or stop drinking entirely—I’ve got a proven toolbox for creating authentic contentment and joy over the long haul.

If your relationship with alcohol is in the way of you living your best life, I invite you to explore working with me.

Kind words
