It is my pleasure to leave this review for Ray. We were referred to Ray by a local mental health provider. Our 22-year-old son required help and direction, and we were lost on next steps. We engaged Ray to act as our consultant to help guide our decision-making. We couldn't be more pleased with the expertise, availability, and service Ray provided, and continues to provide, to our family. He assisted with program options; arranging communication with potential program directors; supported the family and our son through the process; recommended chaperones to travel with our son to the selected program; and remained engaged with the program and our family through the initial program period. Further, he then assisted with our selection of a second step-down program and has been in near-daily contact with us since that transition. Programs are not all the same. Ray has intimate knowledge of programs across the country, and his information was instrumental in all of our decisions over the past several months. We, literally, would not have been able to handle this on our own. Ray has been in constant contact with us, the program directors, and the primary therapists for our son. We couldn't be more pleased with the service Ray has provided. We recommend him without any reservation whatsoever. Ray's services, dedication, and compassion have exceeded all of our expectations. If you or a loved one is in a tough situation, place your trust in Ray to help navigate a path to successful addiction and/or mental health recovery. He is definitely the smartest guy in the room on such matters.

We are forever grateful for the compassion and knowledge Ray demonstrated while we worked together to place my daughter in a transitional program. Ray quickly assessed our daughter's current program, her needs, and her requests to find the best program for her. It was not easy as the first place did not work for my daughter but Ray quickly pivoted and we found the best program where she is now thriving.
It is rare when both the parents and child like their consultant and we finally found that in Ray and it has made the whole undertaking easier. Ray really listens to both parents and child to open communications and help guide everyone through this challenging process. I would strongly recommend Ray to struggling families.
