Additional Resources – Resource List

This page provides a starting point for those needing to access or learn more about options for help with addiction and emotional health concerns. The majority of the below are listed because I have had multiple clients report good experiences, successful treatment outcomes and they have worked collaboratively with me to provide individualized, professional and appropriate care. In many cases, I have sat down and met with these individuals and/or facility leaders personally to discuss their treatment philosophy and applied approaches as well as their commitment to their clients. In some cases, I have worked with or for a listed resource and have experienced observed them in practice and over time.

Not all experiences or needs are the same.

Please do your own due diligence and find the resources that are best for your needs.
