Our Staff

The staff at Connections Counseling are a combination of recovering individuals, compassionate and experienced clinicians. We offer a unique and personal perspective that is most effective. The staff provides a diverse and eclectic approach to long term well being. We incorporate daily activities and physical fitness into treatment and encourage participation in self-help groups.

Groups and Family Program

Families are an integral and essential component for successful treatment outcomes. Our family program encompasses both education and comprehensive interactive groups. Family members are encouraged to participate in our family program. Two certified family therapists facilitate these programs.

Connections Counseling offers numerous college and adolescent groups. Gender specific groups, dual-diagnosis, OWI and opiate specific treatment groups are some of our unique opportunities provided for clients.

Connections Counseling also has two ASAM certified psychiatrists and over 12 clinicians that are both AODA and mental health specialists.  We incorporate medication management into treatment when appropriate.
