A Little About Me:
I thought I’d share a little about myself as I join the team at Life Recovery Consulting. My name is Joe Jacobson and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I graduated from UMKC with a Masters in Social Work in 2004. I also have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Addictions Studies from Park University which I obtained in 1993. In initially thought I might become a school teacher after obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Central Florida in 1990.
I have been working in the field of substance abuse and mental health since 1992. Both substance abuse and mental health have affected both sides of my family for many generations which made for an easy transition into the field of counseling. Although I worked with youth and their families for 5 years, I am not currently working accepting patients under the age of 18. I have worked with adults with mental health and substance abuse diagnosis for the majority of my career and most recently added geriatric patients to my caseload
I currently have my certification to supervise Missouri Substance Abuse Counselors as well as Social Workers seeking licensure. I also subcontract consumers from Tri County Mental Health Services.
