My favorite part of my job is seeing my client’s renewed spirits slowly evolve after they have been here for a few days. They begin smiling again and start feeling hopeful, determined, and committed to their recovery. The feeling it gives me, being a vital person in their recovery journey, is so rewarding.

I am so passionate about this field of work because I have a 30-year family history of addiction. I have personally seen how it can destroy not only the addict but how it affects every family member of an addict. I have also walked side by side in the recovery journey. I believe that my experience, from a family member’s perspective, helps my clients better understand the impact their addiction has on people who love them.
