Clinical Director

Clinical Director

My personal mission statement includes that of “whatever it takes.” I firmly believe in the power of personal spirituality, hope, and faith. I will refute that history does not mark the individual nor does it negate his values, purpose in life, or his future. One is not the mark of his addiction.  The family, while typically operating in the center of the noise and chaos of addiction, must learn the value of actualizing their own needs and purpose, moving outside of the dance of chaos and enabling the addict. Without family work, family education, and aftercare, the disabling cycle continues. I continually provide services for Interventionist, individuals, and families following the formal intervention process to provide a framework for family reunification, support, and processing to address codependence and to address and heal the fragility of the family network for those dealing with addiction in their lives.
