I keep a personalized letter that my wife wrote me early on in my career in drug and alcohol rehab. It reminds me that every call should be a personal interaction, and that I have the opportunity to make a genuine difference in each caller’s life.
My favorite superhero is Spiderman, because he represents a healthy balance between humor, strength of character, and intelligence.
My favorite thing about being an Admission Counselor is being a resource and a reassuring presence to someone going through potentially the worst period of their life.
My favorite superhero is XMen’s Storm, because of her connection with the weather.
What I enjoy most about my job is being able to offer people hope and an opportunity for a life change.
What I like most about being an Admission Counselor: when I hear the pain in callers’ voices and feel the hopelessness they feel, it helps to remind me how far I’ve come in my own recovery, and how vigilant I need to continue to be in order not to repeat the mistakes of the past.
My favorite superhero is Wonder Woman, because she a strong female who stands up for what’s right.
My favorite part of being an Admissions Counselor is connecting with someone who feels broken and having the opportunity to be the first voice of hope they hear.
Iron Man is my favorite superhero. Tony Stark was a normal guy that became a self-made superhero, using his brains not his brawn. He always had dreams and aspirations of building machines that could change the world. He went above and beyond and became his own instrument of change. I admire that.
Being an Admissions Counselor at Beach House means being the first point of contact for our clients. When someone calls in, broken, alone and ready to change their life, I am here to listen and take my time to guide them through the process. The best part is when I get to meet my clients and give them a hug and let them know they are loved.
My superheroes are my therapist and my sponsor. If it weren’t for these two ladies, I may not be alive!
Many people put their hands out to help me when I needed it most, it feels good to return the favor.
My favorite superhero is Batman, because while he doesn’t have any true super powers he is able to use his brain and his connections to do good and protect Gotham.
What I like most about being an Admissions Counselor is the connection I make
with people who are reaching out for help. I remember the voice on the phone when I made that same call for help five years ago—and what it felt like to hear that there were people who care.
My favorite superhero is Batman, because he’s an everyday guy that does extraordinary things.
The best part of my job is the genuine “thank you” we receive when I shake the client’s hand and welcome them to Beach House.
My favorite superhero is Batman. He is fiercely passionate about his cause and unwavering in his morals.
What I like most about being an Admissions Counselor is that I get to be a light in people’s darkest hours and believe in them when they can’t believe in themselves.
My favorite superhero is Supermom, a.k.a. my wife.
I enjoy being an Admissions Counselor. I know what my family went through trying to get me help, and I enjoy helping families save the life of their loved one—just as someone did for me!
