I began my career in substance abuse counseling in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have worked in addiction treatment at all levels of care. Previously, I was a substance abuse counselor at Intersection Las Vegas, a private treatment center that provided both residential and outpatient services for those suffering from alcohol and drug addiction. I have also worked as a substance abuse counselor at both Southern Desert Correctional Center and Florence McClure Women’s Correctional Center in Las Vegas. Both facilities provided inmates with a long-term therapeutic community environment to address substance abuse issues and aid in preparation for successful re-entry into society. I was subsequently hired by Nevada Department of Parole and Probation to conduct substance abuse evaluations that were used to determine the appropriate level of care. I have extensive experience assessing clients and creating individualized treatment plans.
I am a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in the State of Texas. I have personal experience with alcohol and drug addiction and am devoted to helping others achieve a solid, lasting recovery from the disease of addiction through proper guidance and support. I understand not only the clinical side of addiction, but have first-hand experience with the personal struggles of recovery. In this regard, my experience stands out in the field of substance abuse counseling.
I believe the type of treatment offered by Alcohol and Addiction Support is cutting edge in the field of addiction and recovery. It is one of the first of its kind and satisfies the growing need for accessible support through alternative venues, especially with the technology now available.
