Mike served in the United States Navy from 1976 to 1996. On October 3, 1989, he began his counseling career at the Navy Drug and Alcohol Counseling School in San Diego, CA. He has given hundreds of presentations in a vast array of subject matters as well as attending world class trainings at renowned institutions. These institutions include: Hazelden Institute, Center City, MN, Johnson Institute, Minneapolis, MN, Institute for Integral Development, Colorado Springs, CO, School of Addiction Study, University of North Carolina, and Preceptorship Training in Coronado Island, CA.
Mike received his first counseling certification in April 1991, and decided helping others was his destiny. He obtained a Master of Science in Chemical Dependency and became a Florida Certified Addition Professional in 1998. After working as a counselor for a few years, it was obvious the best and most efficient way to help people would be to open his own facility. In 2003, that is exactly what he did. Since then he has become a Florida Certified Mental Health Professional, an Internationally Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and a Substance Abuse Professional. He now has almost 3 decades of experience in providing services for individuals and families with addiction and mental health problems.
Dear Mike, I just wanted to Thank-you from the bottom of my heart for doing such a great job at the Intervention! You sensed my desperation, and you were willing to clear your calendar on very short notice in order for it to take place. You didnt have to do that, but you are a devoted man of God who cares about his clients. And the family and I are so glad thats the kind of person you are: you are willing to support his loving familys strong wishes to help save their beloved brother.
