Tim is a licensed addiction counselor (LAC) who obtained both his Certified Addiction Counselor (CAC III) and National Certified Addiction Counselor (NCAC I) certifications in 2009 and has worked in the addiction counseling field for the last eleven years. He is passionate about the gifts that recovery affords individuals and considers it an honor to accompany clients in this process. Tim approaches therapy as shared journeys where clients emerge into a life abound with possibilities through development of hope, flexibility, and recovery. Recovery is all encompassing and not limited to the addictions field, it is defined as the action or process of regaining possession of something stolen or lost. Through honest and open exploration of the interpersonal we all can again connect to what was lost.
Tim has worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Working in a primary residential treatment center afforded him the expertise to address the acute nature of early recovery from both addictions and co-occurring disorders including an understanding of the important interplay between therapy and pharmacological treatment. Tim is adamantly supportive of individual empowerment and the diverse pathways leading to recovery.
He completed his Master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling psychology at the University of Denver and expanded his area of interests to include trauma recovery, psychodynamic therapy, veterans’ population, and couples and family therapy.
