Meredith Hamel, LADC, ICADC
I believe people can change. Given knowledge and an open space to explore our relationship with ourselves and others, we all have the ability to make things right.
I went into mental health to figure out problems in my own family. I enjoy helping people as well, so the two blended into a life’s passion of social work. It has had a snowball effect reaching different areas including schools, community health, and finally settling in private practice, working with people with substance abuse disorders.
Addictions, anger management, emotion regulation, anxiety, spirituality and mindfulness and working with groups.

When not with my patients, I enjoy… spending time with family, nature & outdoor activities like kayaking, hiking, skating and motorcycling, and adventure sports like zip-lining and motocross. I like pet care taking, visiting farms, horseback riding, reading inspirational books, laughing and finding joy.
