Our mission is to support you in living life fully and our name “Livity” was borne from this idea. We actively work to provide guidance, education and expertise in navigating the challenges involved in the process of recovery.
Our team is comprised of individuals who love what we do. Erin brings her gentleness and passion for recovery, Mark brings his sense of humor and warmth, and Meredith brings her humble and collaborative style to the team.
Our practice is based upon hard work, our ability to challenge one another, and our dedication to helping individuals and families. Additionally, we have created an environment that promotes safety, healing, and supports our mission.

Mark can do 50 fingertip pushups…
