Chief Clinical Officer and CEO
When someone comes to me, I want to know: Why is this person hurting? What are they afraid of? What’s happening with their mental health? We want to put the puzzle together and figure out what piece is missing that we can help them find a personal recovery that is truly fulfilling and theirs to keep.

When I start to work with a new client, I want to understand what brings them to us and how I can help them. We want this to be the last treatment program that you go to. I work with our clients facilitate change in their lives that makes it worth continuing recovery for.
What Our Patients Are Saying
My experience at The Livingood Center was one that will remain in my heart for a long time. I am forever indebted to the staff and owner of The Livingood Center because being there is what finally saved my life after 5 years of pure misery and torture.
Not only did I get the necessary help, support and guidance that I needed for my recovery while attending the IOP program at TLC, but I also felt safer, more loved and more genuinely cared for than I ever have at a rehab center.
Unlike other places I have been through in the past, the groups I attended at The Livingood Center were actually helpful because they were tailored to the requests and needs of every single client individually—I walked out of each different group everyday feeling like I always gained something new from them.
The outings on Fridays were ALWAYS amazing because we, as clients, got to brainstorm things to do and the pick as a group something that everyone collectively was excited to do.
The Livingood Center makes you feel like a part of a family you could depend on for anything you need for your own personal recovery journey.
What made it easy to feel comfortable initially when I first arrived at TLC and was doing intake was that everyone on the staff actually speaks to and treats you like the adult you are.
The staff at The Livingood Center is absolutely one of a kind. They embody everything that you could hope for going into treatment: love, a deep passion to help, understanding hearts, compassion, patience, kindness, guidance, dependability and so much more.
Nobody in my entire life has made me feel more safe, confident in my ability to recover, and like everything was going to be okay than she did (and still does) every single day.
I know that I can talk to her about anything and she will not judge me, make me feel any less about myself, or turn me in the wrong direction no matter what it is I come to her about.
Thanks to my time at TLC I’ll be finishing college in 2 years and starting the career of my dreams, with the man of my dreams. I have a future that I’m looking forward to and my past no longer haunts me.
