Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Shirley Higgins "Serving the addiction and mental health population for over 15 years helping individuals, couples, groups and families looking for a light at the end of a dark tunnel.

People can make helpful changes in their lives regarding addiction, mental health, couples issues, life's issues, anger management, or court mandated issues, and I will help them in their journey toward change.  I offer an understanding and empathetic environment with treatment planning geared toward individual needs.
