LMFT, Clinical Director
David Cisneros is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. He got clean and sober in 1999 and began doing volunteer literacy work for Cri-Help, Inc. in 2000. He assisted in developing a literacy program for their sister program Socorro, in East Los Angeles.
While studying for his alcohol and drug certification at East Los Angeles College, David worked as a technician at Socorro and helped develop and manage several sober livings. After obtaining his alcohol and drug certification through CAADE, David was employed as a Chemical Dependency Counselor at Socorro.
David has, in the past, been a volunteer for SASA (Students Against Substance Abuse), organizing panels of recovering addicts and alcoholics to speak at charter schools and adolescent outpatient programs in LA County for at-risk youth, as well as VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) at the Acton Rehabilitation Center, assisting addicts and alcoholics with literacy problems.
David has also worked with at-risk youth from low-income communities in a variety of group homes.
David obtained his BA and MA in Counseling Psychology at Ryokan College. He utilizes a client centered approach when treating individuals and borrows extensively from both CBT and psychodynamic theoretical modalities in assisting clients to identify and change maladaptive patterns that contribute to their addictions.
We believe trust, meaningful connections, and kindness are the essentials to beginning a journey in recovery. We are dedicated to providing an honest, authentic, and genuine treatment environment that gives our clients a unique opportunity for healing.
