Jacob Umanzor, LPC, LCDC
Knowing that he would one day become a mental health provider, Jacob initially sought a career opportunity that would allow exposure to working with varying personalities. So, he worked as a probation officer for five years before finishing graduate school at St. Edward’s University. Since then he has worked with and developed programing for adolescents as well as adults.
These unique experiences have taught him the importance of incorporating family work into the treatment process to help sustain recovery and his ability to support families and provide holistic individual approaches to therapy play a large role in his work with Driftwood residents.
One of Jacob’s passions is keeping a strong mind and body through exercise and coupling physical fitness into aftercare planning.
