  • Quotes

    • Jeff: Individuals and families become dysfunctional by accident. But they get well on purpose and this is what I'm about, helping them do that.

    • Jeff: An intervention is a caring, deliberate, and well-conceived event, through which people who care express their concern. It is a safe and intentional opportunity for them to reflect back to their loved one the ramifications of his or her behavior on themselves and others, and to present a plan to change and get help in ways that will address the causes and alleviate the suffering of all involved. With the skilled assistance of an interventionist, the experience creates the opportunity to interrupt destructive patterns of living or deal constructively with a crisis situation.
