testimonial

“Christy has literally saved my life and actually gets me. She understands addiction and gives me the compassion and patience I’ve really needed – deep down that I really have never gotten. Sobriety has been 4 years but for the first time in 43 years I know what it finally feels like to be myself and actually love who I’m becoming. I can freakin’ sit in my own skin.”
