His final internship was at Hazelden Betty Ford in West Palm Beach Florida, where he worked as a counselor after graduation. He began exploring the underlying issues of addiction and came to understand that childhood trauma played a large role. He started studying Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing EMDR and became an EMDR Therapist Internationally Certified by EMDRIA. Jack loves listening to people tell their stories. share their secrets and find their voice.
