Substance Use Therapist
Helping establish a coalition between the addict and the helping professional.
- Working with people who are struggling with substance dependency issues. Helping them find healthy alternatives to their drug and alcohol use. Helping people get over their ambivalence about making changes in their lives by using Motivational Interviewing techniques. I currently work with the adolescent population in the Community Options Program; an intensive outpatient program which includes case management that is designed for youth ages thirteen to eighteen who struggle with addiction issues and are at risk for out-of-home placement.
I have been working in the substance use and co-occurring disorder field since 2007. I have also completed training to help people with mental health issues find healthy alternatives to deal with mental health issues outside of the use of drugs and alcohol.
