Founder and Lead Counselor, Michael Shaldone

Michael Shaldone has over 6,000 hours in addiction counseling and is a Certified AOD counselor. Using mindfulness, nature, nutrition, yoga and cognitive behavioral therapy as healing modalities, he teaches these in recovery from personal experience:

“We can all be addicted in some way to something. Perhaps it’s chemicals. Perhaps it’s behaviors. Perhaps it’s judgements, resentments and lack of tolerance. Diving deep into self-love and acceptance provides freedom from this bondage. In the past, I considered myself a victim, which denied me the ability to see the blessings of my circumstances. Fully surrendering, healing myself through these modalities and ascending into new understanding has allowed me to pursue my purpose, my dharma.”
