My name is Noel and I am one of the Primary Counselors at Discovery Institute for Addictive Disorders. I am currently receiving my Masters degree in Social Work from Ramapo College. I am in the process of pursuing my LCSW as well as my LCADC. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a track in Criminology from Coastal Carolina University. I began my career with Discovery as a Behavioral Health Technician and was just recently promoted to Primary Counselor for STS, ACT, and Detox. During my undergrad, I worked with our campus Police Department, S.C Probation Parole & Pardon Services, and the Myrtle Beach Rape Crisis Center. My clinical interests pertain to recovery and addiction, corrections, crisis intervention, co-occurring mental health disorders, and trauma. My approach is client-centered and I am extremely passionate about helping my clients to the best of my ability and providing them with all the necessary support they need to be successful in life.
