Manager of Chemical Health Services
Treatment for clients must encompass the whole person and their environment. It is about meeting them in the reality where they perceive themselves to be, focusing and listening to their goals, and joining with them to provide motivation toward change.
For more than twenty years, I have been involved with services to those with addictions, mental illness, and other human service areas. I currently supervise outpatient chemical health treatment programs. I also serve as Chair of the Chemical Health Action Collaborative for Washington County, serve on the Washington County Children and Families Council and direct a SAMHSA Drug Free Communities grant. Prior to my time at Canvas Health, I worked with Hazelden, Fairview and in the fields of corrections and social services.
