Posted On

Joel is excited to be a member of the Pinnacle team. He loves bringing his skills from his previous life as a professional actor and adjunct professor of theatre in Chicago. This makes for an enjoyable and creative approach to the skills based classes for the clients here at Pinnacle. He uses warm up games and movement to get clients focused in the current moment that helps them retain the lessons while simultaneously making them more fun and go by more quickly. He is in recovery himself and often draws on his experience with his own struggle for sobriety to help empathize and teach the clients here. He is an example of how great recovery can be and how honesty and assertive communication can benefit our lives.
