Who we are:

Providers in our group consist of Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners, Social Workers, Mental Health Counselors, and Psychologists with an interest and specialized training in diagnosing and treating addiction issues.

We are dedicated to meeting you where you at and helping you identify the right path towards improved mental health and recovery.

We strive to be non-judgmental in our approach in order to build a trusting relationship that can be a launching point to self-discovery.

Experience & approach:

Providers are experienced in helping those who are impaired or negatively affected by their use or abuse.

Some providers are open to using a range of modalities including mindfulness-based and non-religious approaches, which can provide alternatives to a 12 step program.

Addiction work can be a way many of our clients come to Mindful Therapy Group, and many find they leave with a sense of community, empowerment, and stronger feelings of self-worth.
