A Letter from Monte Nido Vista's Assistant Clinical Director

Being curious about change is a huge step. On behalf of your soul self, thank you for listening to the yearning for something else. The choice from here is a tough one – will you expand or contract your awareness? There’s no pressure – you don’t have to believe in full recovery; you don’t even have to know if you want it. All we ask is that you stay open enough to spend time with us at our mountain nest. At Monte Nido Vista, we know everyone’s journey to understanding and actualizing a complete and full recovery is different. Come explore what change means for you and let us take care of loving and supporting you as you figure things out. At some point, I trust you’ll have a good idea of what you do or don’t want for your life, and we at Monte Nido Vista would be honored to join your soul on that journey.

Stacie-Sustin-Sincerely,
Stacie Sustin
MA, MFTI | ASSISTANT CLINICAL DIRECTOR
