Dean Steinberg has been working as a Counselor at Beit T’Shuvah for the past 4 years. In that time, he has distinguished himself as a caring, funny, and attentive member of our staff. Starting Next week, Dean will be one of our newest writers for this blog so we decided that you, the reader, should start to get to know the author of these future blogs.
Dean’s professional career began in the music business. He first worked at Island records and then moved on to the field of artist management. Eventually however, he became disillusioned with the “business” side of the industry. “I simply love music and the music industry drifted far from being about music,” says Dean.
It was here that his career took a different route toward helping people. Dean went back to school and got his Masters in Psychology. He has worked at various mental health and addiction facilities: Tarzana Treatment Center, Bishop Gooden, and The Help Group to name a few.
In 2008 Dean set out to get his Doctorate in Psychology with an emphasis in families and addiction. Dean is known as one of the Counselors who runs the family groups at Beit T’Shuvah. He hopes to graduate this September as a Clinical Psychologist.
This October will mark 7 years of sobriety for Dean.
We hope you’re looking forward to reading what Dean has to say about life, addiction, and Beit T’Shuvah. Stay tuned till next week when his first blog goes live.
