Thank you for visiting our site.

We at Rounding the Bases are committed to helping our clients reach their full potential. It’s a fresh approach to an old problem in society. Our clients have always heard, “You can’t,” and in many cases, have come to believe that they are stuck; unable to move forward with their lives.

At Rounding the Bases we say, “Let us show you the way up and out of your situation” no matter what the underlying cause of your apparent institutionalization. Some causes of said condition are addiction, homelessness, mental illness, and the newly reentered from incarceration. Any one or combination of these conditions is enough to make an individual lose hope of having a productive future.

I have experienced all four of these realities, and have defied the naysayers at every turn. I guess you could say I am hard-headed. I am determined to live a life as normal and productive as possible. I want this for each of our clients as well. Having lived it, I know what they are going through, and how frustrating it can be. I am not so far removed, approaching four years of ongoing recovery, that I don’t know what the day to day struggle is all about.

It’s all about dealing with each client one on one; with their issues and concerns. My hope and prayer is that their experience with RTB is positive and supportive. Nobody said that it’s going to be easy. In most cases, changing one’s station in life requires a lot of determination and hard work. If an individual can first shed the notion that “they owe me” or “they will take care of me”, then he or she will be half way there.

I am very excited to be doing this type of work. It is rewarding and satisfying. If I can see a client go from hopeless to hopeful, unemployable to employed, homeless to housed, using to clean, and ill to stable on medication, then I know I’m in the right place.
