I am an independently licensed substance abuse counselor in the states of AZ and TX with nearly 15 years of experience in the field.
Addictions Counselor in Mesa, AZ
Being traumatized can lead to a feeling of not feeling safe (either physically or emotionally) due to a negative or traumatizing event that occurred in our life. I utilized a mixture of therapeutic modalities (i.e. Trauma-Focused - CBT, DBT, etc.) to help my clients resolve some of their trauma.
I have been helping people that suffer from the disease of addiction for nearly 15 years now. Regardless of whether it is Nicotine, Alcohol, Caffeine, Prescription Drugs, Marijuana, or Illicit Drugs, I find it useful to use a mixture of DBT, Motivational Interviewing, CBT and REBT techniques to help establish a safe foundation of recovery.
