Resident Counselor (Current Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – August 14, 2017
As a residential counselor, I enjoy my inaction with patients. I empathize with their struggles and treat them with compassion.

Program Director (Current Employee) – springfield, ma – July 31, 2015
The facility is a beautiful home and all of the people involved are wonderful. As it is a new business there are still some kinks to work out and I'm sure as it grows it will be more beneficial to its employees.
Getting to help people. Not a fast-paced, hectic environment.

Entered Dr. charges and lab charges. Prepared Client Agreements and talked with the families regarding insurance and who will be the responsible party. My supervisor was amazing and so down to earth. The hardest part of the job was to not get attached to clients. My co-workers were great as well.

Residential Counselor II (Current Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – August 24, 2013
Great team atmosphere between all departments. Provides patient centered care to all that come through the door for treatment of co-occurring disorders. I am the lead RC on the sing shift Sunday thru Thursday. I enjoy doing groups and sitting with patients on an individual basis. My co-workers and I work as a team every shift. The hardest part is watching patients want to leave against clinical advice. The most enjoyable aspect of my position is watching patients get that they need help.
