I have nearly a decade of experience in substance abuse counseling which has focused on both individual treatment and on family therapy. While I have always enjoyed substance abuse counseling, I donít feel that my skills are limited to that field; as working at the Morton Center and at Georgia Highlands has allowed me to expand my field into other areas for both addict and family. I have not limited my career to only counseling; this allows me to understand my clients and has also allowed me to earn management experience. I have supervised employees of all ages and understand that different employees have different needs, much like clients.
I consistently set a positive attitude towards my work environment and career path. I have a record of dedication and success due to my care and concern for the business I am in and the people I work for and with. I look forward to bringing those qualities to my next employer.
