Vicki is the founder of Personal Counseling Services (PCS).  The agency first opened its doors for business in August 1991. The goal was to help families and individuals improve their lives utilizing counseling techniques tailored to their specific needs.  

Recognizing how many families are affected by addiction, it seemed a logical choice to offer both substance abuse counseling as well as mental health services.  To this end, Personal Counseling Services became a licensed outpatient substance abuse treatment facility for adults and adolescents.


As her practice has grown over the years, Vicki and staff have maintained a love of learning and applying that knowledge to help the clients served at PCS.  Being able to draw from a wide variety of skills and experience has been immensely helpful in assisting people improve their lives.  Helping people discover how to make the positive changes they seek is a mission that continues to this day at PCS.
