Nick Peters, CADC

I specialize in college students, adults, teens, couples, and families. I provide treatment of substance abuse related issues and other addictive symptoms and behaviors. I focus on the recovery of the individual and their loved ones. I have spent many years working with youth and adults in various counseling settings. I work to meet the client where they are and work with them as they move towards a life of recovery. With the understanding that therapy is not a one style fits all, I work to meet people where they are and assist them in their recovery work.
