Gemma Andaya, PhD ABD, LCADC-S, LCPC

Executive & Clinical Director


Gemma’s life’s work is to leave the world a healthier place for future generations. The lens at through which she measures health is a holistic one in which psychology, condition of relationships, connection to a higher power or sense of meaning/purpose and the physical are interconnected. She believes in giving the stigmatized addicted population a holistic, trauma-informed, and mindfulness-based approach at recovery.

What is necessary for a consciously holistic recovery is a total reset of lifestyle – from proper nutrition, exercise, sleep, communication skills, career satisfaction, financial balance, and a sense of meaning and purpose reignited. The Nestled Recovery Center’s program covers all of these components for a holistic approach at recovery. The program is crafted to provide structure and consistency to patients so that they may themselves focus on the addressing the underlying psychological wounds that caused them to want to hide and numb in the first place as well as any mental health symptoms that could cause relapse in the future.

“I love working with this population. They are some of the most resourceful, resilient, creative, and curious individuals I have ever met. They are so worthy of a progressive treatment approach that raises consciousness. And to do it with our Nestled team who cares so deeply and treats this place with so much intention is just such a gift. I feel so incredibly lucky and honored to lead The Nestled work family and it is my full intent to continue to heal and be a light for those in need.”
