I have personal and professional experience as a licensed certified addictions counselor (licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselor) in helping persons with alcohol and other drug problems. In addition to being an addictions counselor, I am in long term recovery myself with 34 years of continuous abstinence and sobriety. I have been working as an addictions counselor for 32 years. I have been Director of Treatment at two residential treatment programs and was the Chief Substance Abuse Counselor and Program Coordinator of the Chemical Dependency Unit at the Sheppard Pratt Health Systems in Baltimore Maryland for four years.
I consider addictive disease to be a three-fold illness: physical, emotional/mental, and spiritual. For most individuals, the strength to overcome the power of addiction cannot be found in one's own will power alone, but through help from others, including a spiritual source of strength. A few words about spirituality. I myself am a Christian, a Roman Catholic with strong faith in Jesus Christ. However, the spiritual strength needed to recover from addictive disease can be sought and found in many ways. Indeed, I began my spiritual recovery journey by just being willing to find a spiritual source of strength. I will help any individual seek and find his or her own path to a source of spiritual strength.
I have been Director of Loyola University in Maryland's Alcohol and Drug Education and Support Services for the past 23 years, providing education and treatment services as an addictions counselor to students. I am also an affiliate professor in the Psychology Department of Loyola University, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in drug and alcohol addictions. I also have a private practice as an addictions counselor in addition to my online addictions counseling services.
In addition to my law degree from the George Washington University Law school in Washington, D.C., I have a Master of Science degree in Pastoral Counseling, and am a CCDC, or Maryland Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor, and an LCADC, or Maryland Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor.
I am a member of the Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors of Maryland. Click here and look for my name under Find a Therapist.
Explanation of the education and experience needed for my license as a licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselor (LCADC), the equivalent to a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Maryland, but with the added expertise in addictions, can be found here.
I will send you a copy of my resume if you wish.
