For many of us, November is a time to reflect on the good in our lives. As Thanksgiving nears and we prepare to celebrate our gratitude, we asked some of our West Bergen staff members to share their thoughts on what they are most thankful for.

I have always loved the Ghandi quote, “Be the change you want to see in the World.” I am so grateful for my position at West Bergen that allows me to be a better person, and practice kindness and empathy in my work while also maintaining and embracing my personality.Melinda Sohval, RN
I am thankful and reflective about a few things this year! First, for the entire West Bergen staff family who spend so much time and energy working to improve the lives of our clients. Second, for the clients themselves, who put their trust in us and who also work each and every day to feel better. Finally, I am thankful for my partner and family, and for my friends who have shown me how they, too, are truly family!Michael Tozzoli, LCSW
I am thankful for the wonderful team that I am part of in the Social Discovery program! We are immensely thankful for being part of West Bergen to serve the community!Richard Miller, LPC, NCC
