Substance Use Disorder Counselor

Gary has over nine years working in the field of addiction.
His passion is to be of service to anyone who struggles with addiction, whether it is a client who is struggling with substance abuse, or the family members who strive to support them. Gary believes it is important to help clients and their family members find what works best for them in order to feel empowered and live a balanced life.
Being in recovery himself, Gary has had firsthand experience of the recovery activities that he facilitates with clients and their families. It is because of this unique life experience that Gary understands the transformative process of recovery and the importance of clients and families working towards understanding through healthy communication.
Gary is thrilled to be part of a team that views addiction not as the problem, but as a symptom of a bigger issue in the client’s life.
In addition to working in recovery, Gary’s life is spent fishing and enjoying the outdoors. He also loves spending time with his family, grandkids, and his two dogs.
