Dear Valued Guest,
Welcome to our website! At Valley Recovery Center of California, we strive to make all of our guests feel welcome and comfortable. We know how challenging the road to recovery is and we are here to help. I consider myself very fortunate to lead the great team of professionals at Valley Recovery Center. Throughout my career in behavioral health and addictions, I have worked with many fine people at many great institutions. From hospitals to residential facilities to outpatient, I have led teams at all levels of care and seen some amazing transformations. The team at Valley Recovery Center is no exception. Since arriving at Valley, I have observed high quality work from committed professionals and have seen wonderful success stories in my short time here.
Being a part of people’s recovery is why I entered the field 15 years ago. I started in behavioral health as a therapist, treating clients in a variety of settings. Eventually, through years of study and practice, I earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology and continued to treat people from all walks of life. After practicing clinically for over ten years, I transitioned into a management role, where I led a multi-specialty behavioral health department within a hospital. From there, I moved into residential treatment with the goal of continuing to provide a high quality treatment experience for clients and families alike. High quality treatment is what you receive when you choose Valley Recovery Center. Everyday at Valley Recovery Center we push ourselves to be better and do better for you. Thank you.
