Hi, my name is Roxie. I am a Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor and a Clinical Supervisor in Training for Genesis Behavioral Services. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Service with a Concentration in Addiction Studies from Springfield College. I also sit on the board of NAADAC (National Association for Addiction Counselors). I started working in this field in the year 2000 as a House Manager and earned my credentials as a Substance Abuse Counseling in 2009. Since then, I have had the pleasure of counseling individuals in residential, outpatient, medication treatment, and Department of Correction settings. I have been volunteering helping individuals with addictions for 24 years and I also started a 12 Step Bible Class with my church in 2016. I am certified to facilitate Cognitive Intervention groups for Substance Abuse, Domestic Violence and Anger Management through the Department of Corrections. My motivation for helping others stems from my past struggle with addiction. I believe that anyone that suffers from addiction can find freedom and it brings me great joy to know that I have played a part in so many lives. I am a skilled and I have the education, experience, compassion and knowledge to help individuals obtain meaningful, productive lives.
