The Right Step has been treating patients with chemical dependency issues for more than 20 years. Staffed by compassionate and fully-trained professionals, the Austin-based facility offers outpatient alcohol and drug addiction treatment, family groups, and aftercare services. In a safe and supportive environment, clients learn to develop the skills and tools they'll need to lead a fulfilling life in sobriety, as well as the resources available to help them maintain an abstinent lifestyle.
I am a Spanish-speaking licensed chemical dependency counselor and certified anger management therapist as well as a certified CrossFit coach. I am the Program Director of a Right Step intensive outpatient program in Austin, Texas, and am CEO of Recovery Fitness, an innovative nutrition and fitness program that is provided to guests at Spirit Lodge addiction treatment center. My areas of specialization include counseling, relapse prevention management, psycho-social assessments, family therapy, case management, and holistic addiction recovery.More
