Discovery Behavioral Health - Our Team

Our People

In this Vital Arena of Service, People Matter

Not only those who come to our facilities for life-saving treatment, but also our experienced professional administrators and staff whose unflinching goal is to help every patient attain lasting health and full recovery. Even the most intricately designed recovery programs require a dynamic catalyst to move them forward effectively. That catalyst is the quality of our people – all licensed professionals, many with advanced clinical degrees and doctorates.


The DBH clinical staff offers proficiency in a wide range of therapeutic disciplines. All have been extensively trained and feature many years of hands-on experience. They apply evidentiary methodologies based on tested, proven results. Ours is an experienced team of skilled professionals who have what it takes to lead, to inspire and to change the lives of those they serve. With the right people in the right places, we are able to evolve and grow in a seamless, organic manner. Clearly, it is more than a business to DBH; it is our life’s work.
