Our Story

📷Cyndi Turner, LCSW, LSATP, MAC and Craig James, LCSW, LSATP, MAC were meant to meet. She grew up in New Jersey; he looked at Princeton University. A year later Craig attended George Mason University, she toured the campus. Three years later they lived in the same neighborhood. Cyndi earned her master’s degree in social work, then Craig soon after. Craig worked at a juvenile detention center; she visited her clients there. For years lived within a mile of each other.

Craig and Cyndi finally met face to face in 2001 and things just clicked. Despite being trained as clinicians, they both were business minded and had an entrepreneurial spirit.

In 2006 theydeveloped the Dual Diagnosis Recovery Program© for people struggling with both substance use disorders and mental health issues. But they were functioning in a broken system. They wanted to correct the problems that Northern Virginians were facing with a fragmented behavioral health care system. Their own neighbors faced waitlists, well-meaning but untrained providers for addiction treatment, and drove to multiple offices for services while the opiate and suicide epidemics raged in Loudoun County.

They envisioned experts who responded quickly and compassionately in one location. They put their Leesburg homes up as collateral and gathered a team of six therapists with over a hundred years' experience between them. Insight Into Action Therapy opened its door to clients on July 13, 2015 with the mission of setting the standard to which other practices would be compared.
