23 Feb Meet Our New Clinical Director
Join us in welcoming Linda Kleiber, who recently joined the Hitchcock team as the new Clinical Director. Linda’s vast experience in treatment and working with the recovery community will be a great addition to Hitchcock Center for Women. Meet Linda below.
What is your professional background?
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Supervisor, LPCC-S with a CDCA (Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant)
As a counselor I have experience working with women, men, teenagers and families. My experience has lead me to working with counseling and AOD clients in variety of settings: in community outpatient treatment, IOP Intensive Outpatient, Department of Youth Services Correctional Facility, Domestic Violence Shelter, Mental Health Board, and as Clinical Director at residential treatment center for adolescents.
What drew you to work at Hitchcock?
I love working in residential settings. I love the challenge of helping individuals reach their potential and helping them thru crisis. Hitchcock offers a variety of services and supports women in keeping their children with them while they are completing treatment. This is a rare find in the alcohol/drug community or mental health community. Most often women in residential treatment are forced to attend treatment away from their families. Hitchcock supports families being together. This is a huge asset to healing! It is exciting to be with an organization that has this vision of keeping families together.
What is your favorite part of working with people in recovery?
Seeing how recovery can change lives of individuals and their families. It is a humbling experience to be allowed the opportunity to help counsel and go alongside an individual in recovery. I find that Hope motivates individuals to change their lives for the better. It is wonderful to see the sense of hope and survival and overcoming develop in individuals thru counseling and support.
What are you looking forward to in your work at Hitchcock?
I am looking forward to the opportunity to enhance the work already being provided at Hitchcock. To further develop evidenced based treatment programs that are trauma sensitive and formatted around issues that enhance women’s needs and the needs of their families. It is exciting to me to help staff learn and develop techniques to enhance their services. I love team building and feel that Hitchcock has great potential and great future.
