Living with addiction can be a lonely, confusing, and frustrating experience to deal with for any individual. In my years of working with adults who have battled with addiction, I have learned that it is a struggle that one needs all the support, guidance, and understanding that they can receive.
My name is Ebony Langston, and I have been working in Mental Health/addiction since graduating from Southern Connecticut State University with a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
As a licensed professional counselor/Addiction counselor I have worked in the substance abuse setting at MCCA, which includes Intensive outpatient treatment, Relapse Prevention, and individual therapy. I have also had experience with clients involved in the Methadone program at Apt Foundation. In my experience working in the mental health field, it has become apparent that many who have struggled with addiction, also have struggled with anxiety, depression, etc. that needs to be addressed in addition to the addiction.
I hope to develop short term/long term achievable goals in collaboration with clients who are willing to change maladaptive behaviors. While change is scary for most, I hope to help clients understand the benefits of making changes in their thinking and lifestyle and be able to identify strengths with clients throughout therapy. If you find yourself stuck in where you are in life, now is the time to reach out for guidance. I believe most people have the answers to their questions within. I would like to help assist in bringing light to those answers by way of motivational interviewing and a strong therapeutic alliance.
