Buster Ross, LPC
I graduated from the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addictions Studies with a Master's in Addiction Counseling. I'm a licensed professional counselor with extensive experience working with people with substance use disorders and mental health disorders. I'm a trained sex-therapist. I've published peer-reviewed research on LGBTQ individuals mental health and substance use treatment. I believe that counseling should be a structured and safe container where patients are supported in realizing the changes that they want in their own lives. I'm particularly well equipped to work with clients in recovery from substance use disorders who are experiencing mental health and sexuality issues that persist in sobriety.
