New Glenwood Springs Program Director
Mind Springs Health, the largest provider of mental health and addiction treatment on the western slope, is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew (Andy) Hymas, LCSW as Program Director for its Glenwood Springs practice.
Hymas brings more than 18 years of mental health and addiction treatment experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and understands the unique needs of rural health care. He comes to Mind Springs Health most recently from Rexburg, Idaho where he was Executive Director of Upper Valley Resource & Counseling Center. Areas of interest and expertise for Hymas include play therapy, structural family therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). As Program Director he is responsible for the overall management of a therapy office that treated over 1,500 people of all ages this past year.
“Good mental health is a community effort, as those who live with mental and emotional difficulties find peace in an environment of acceptance, encouragement and love,” said Andy. “I am thankful for the opportunity to work with the people of Glenwood Springs and Garfield County in building communities that support those with mental health needs in creating a lifestyle that brings them growth and happiness.”
Hymas holds an undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University in Salt Lake City, Utah and received his Master’s Degree from Walla Walla University in Missoula, Montana. He and his family love the outdoors and are looking forward to enjoying the local hiking, camping, mountain biking and rock climbing.
