What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I recently took some extra classes in the field of addictions because of the rise of addiction diffiuclties in our society and to better understand the roles it plays in people's lives. This can be either as a user or a concerned family member. I hope to be able to offer addictions counseling in conjuction with my other specialties in the near future for those who personally have in substance use issues.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for someone who has the training in your area of interests. Find someone who is interested in listening to you and achieving goals. I like to find ways of encouraging people to identify and come up with their own solutions to any diffiuclties they may experiencing. People generally have the answers inside themselves and just need someone to help them recognize it.
