Adam graduated from the University of North Georgia with a master’s degree in Counseling emphasizing in addiction. Adam was the first student accepted into the inaugural Addiction’s Track at UNG and part of the track’s first graduating class. Adam has a passion for serving those with mental health and addiction needs due to his personal experience with addiction and current need for quality addiction counseling. A few aspects of recovery that Adam stresses with his clients are the importance of community, connection, and having fun in sobriety. Adam has a CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) Track Group where he goes over the impact of thoughts and feelings, how they can lead to unhealthy behaviors, and the best interventions/solutions to break this cycle. Adam also hosts a group on Monday afternoons on finding meaning in recovery and the meaning of life. Adam has volunteered with the American Foundation for Suicide prevention, teaches motivational interviewing to counseling students, has been interviewed about addiction on various platforms (podcast, radio, etc.), and is constantly keeping up with the latest findings in addiction recovery/counseling. In his free time, Adam spends time with his two children, listens to podcast, roots for The Atlanta Braves, travels, exercises and perfects his chili recipe (it’s really good btw!). Adam’s biggest strength is his natural curiosity of his fellows and desire to see people get better.
