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 professor of theatre in Chicago to this field. This unique life experience 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. He is in recovery himself and often draws on his experience with his own struggle for sobriety to both empathize with and teach the clients here at Pinnacle. He recently got married and is working on his Master’s of science in clinical mental health counseling. He is an example of how great recovery can be and how honesty and assertive communication can benefit our lives.
