I am a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, working in the field for over 20 years. I collaborate with family members, loved ones, and organizations focusing on educating, finding strengths, and guiding when alcoholism/addiction impacts a relationship. Being a family member myself, I understand the devastation that addiction/alcoholism has on the family. Through my own recovery as a family member, I am passionate about working with others impacted by their loved one's addiction/alcoholism.

"My family and I are forever thankful to Emilio. His teaching style to us as the family was professional and empathetic. He is relatable but also offers challenging and differing perspectives. During the intervention process, he was key in achieving breakthrough moments with his compassionate but firm demeanor. Emilio is extremely professional, has great communication skills, and knows just the right things to say (and the right amount as well). As it relates to bilingual families, Emilio is the best, and I would recommend to others who find themselves in this unfortunate situation."
