Our Team

Our Clinicians and Staff at destination hope

The Destination Hope team features a diverse range of backgrounds and professional experience. But we are unified by two qualities – compassion for people living with mental illnesses or addiction and dedication to providing the highest quality of care possible. Our counselors are experienced and knowledgeable in mental health, behavioral health, and substance abuse. Our clinicians are experts in their field and have decades of experience.

Many of us have experienced addiction ourselves or have had our lives touched by mental illnesses in other ways. For us this work is more than just a job, it’s a calling. Each team member brings a diverse skill set and point of view making our program well-rounded and exceptionally competent. At Destination Hope, we stand ready to help you or your loved one transform their lives in recovery and learn to manage their mental illnesses so they can live the most fulfilling life possible.
