Our Team

Get to know the professionals who attend to client needs from admission to discharge.

Experienced | Compassionate | Committed


We are people who know that life can be hard, and that we all experience loss, stress and sometimes feel overwhelmed. We are also people who sometimes struggle to resolve a conflict within themselves or with others.

At CHOICES, Inc. we work as a “multi-disciplinary team”. That means that you have the full benefit of our nursing, clinical and administrative team working with you to do our part and help you accomplish your mental health goals. Together that’s over 100 years of clinical experience! That’s one of the reasons we think we have some of the best nurses, clinicians and support staff around.
