Biography

Dave has been working with people that struggle with addiction since 2003, where he started as a House Manager for the sober living that he and his wife now own, in Waco TX. Dave  is a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, licensed by the State of Texas since 2010. Originally a native of Chicago, Dave has been in Texas since 1978. After 24 years of active addiction, Dave took advantage of an offer from the State of Texas to admit to a residential substance abuse treatment center. After 21 years as a Hair Designer, Dave decided to change his career path and 2 years into his recovery, Dave decided to go back to college and obtained an AAS in Mental Health/Substance Abuse. Dave is now living his 19th year in recovery, free from the bondage of self and a life full of chaos and drama. Dave’s focus at Casa Colina encompasses a strong emphasis on Reality Therapy along with presentation of CBT/DBT skills. Dave incorporates mindfulness with healing through music and guided meditations.  Dave’s purpose in life and where he finds spiritual fulfillment, comes from working with clients and their families, to help them see that recovery is possible through and with a power greater than ourselves and the support of others.

Dave currently lives in Waco, with his wife of 12 years, 2 dogs and has 2 daughters and 5 grandchildren. Dave enjoys playing the drums, spending time with his grandchildren, riding his motorcycle with his wife, cooking and going on cruises every other year, in order to recharge and relax.
