Joe comes to the Duffy’s team with over 4 of years of experience working in the behavioral health field. Upon graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science in Sociology from University of Oregon, Joe began working as a Mentor and Life Coach for Dragonfly Transitions in southern Oregon. He has worked in operations management with sober living environments, and has experience working as a clinician and administrator in substance abuse treatment programs. Joe’s own journey through recovery was assisted by the men and women who worked in substance abuse counseling and he believes fully in the foundation-building of recovery that occurs in strong residential treatment programs.
Joe believes it is imperative to understand one’s pain in order to understand one’s addiction. Joe spent 10 years living away from northern California and returned in August of 2017 excited to improve the quality of people’s lives he met here. He is excited to do outreach for Duffy’s Napa Valley and believes he can be a successful addition to the team there.
