How did you come upon Antioch University New England?
“I was self-employed when a catastrophic event changed my life. Business has lost its attraction and counseling seemed a natural next step. Initially, I entered the program as a generalist, but I switched to addictions counseling at the suggestion of Dr. Kurinsky. The commonality of substance abuse and addiction in individuals and families made the decision a no-brainer.”

Why does the world need you, and others like you, now?
“Clinical work is demanding, but is incredibly rewarding. I work to reunify and stabilize families. Part of my job is holding hope for those who cannot hold hope for themselves. I am continually amazed at the resilience and strength of the human spirit.”

What makes Antioch different?
“Antioch graduates are well-prepared by professors who care deeply. I felt honored to participate in classes with gifted teachers and clinicians-in-training. Antioch seemed successful at creating a safe environment that promoted insight.”
