Recovery & Substance Abuse Treatment Intern
Gary’s Professional Philosophy: For me, there is nothing more rewarding in life than witnessing someone break free from the bondage of addiction. Watching an individual grow in recovery and achieve their goals is truly a miracle like no other. My undergraduate degree in psychology specializes in recovery from addiction and crisis counseling. My passion in life is to help others and assist them in unlocking their true potential and I sincerely believe that no matter how far down the scale you’ve fallen there is always hope.
