Buddy has worked in the mental health field for over ten years. He started his career with the top adolescent program in the country, giving him a solid foundation for his career path. Buddy has been involved in every avenue of treatment, from behavioral tech, admissions, marketing, counselor, and program director. This all laid the groundwork for him to know what it takes to open a successful program of his own. Buddy’s fundamental knowledge of successful treatment centers, as well as his passion to help others, has fueled his desire to help launch New Hope Healthcare Institute. Buddy truly believes the client comes first and does his part to make sure everyone who enters the program has his or her needs met. Buddy’s greatest mental health influences come from the father of Positive Psychology, Martin Seligman, as well as the author of Man’s Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl. Buddy utilizes as many experiential practices as possible and is an enthusiastic advocate of adventure therapy, which he frequently incorporates with New Hope programming. In his free time he spends time outdoors with his family, enjoying all the beauty that Knoxville has to offer.
