“I believe that not just one person is involved in actively promoting recovery for the individuals we serve. I believe that everyone here at Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute creates an environment of hope and possibility. Everyone plays a role in an individual's success, and integration back into the community, including the individual. I am proud when an individual is ready to be discharged after meeting their treatment goals and I like to think that I had a little something to do with that through supporting them in their times of need and helping them grow in their recovery.”

"I started employment with Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute in 2014 and it is truly an exciting, educational and empowering experience as a healthcare professional. Not only do I enjoy working at the Institute, but also I appreciate that I’m considered as apart of Virginia's Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services as a whole. I adore that the Institute's vision incorporates hope, and that vision contributes to fulfilling a life of possibilities for all Virginians at a larger scale. I am beyond grateful that members of the community, who receive our services, allow me to contribute to their recovery on a daily basis. Every day is not only a new day, but also a rewarding day. Our organization is truly the definition of "You get out, what you put in" and sometimes more!"
