Overcame Addiction to Help Others on a Path to Recovery

Overcame Addiction to Help Others on a Path to Recovery

Jodie Gonzalez

2012, Bachelor of Arts in Psychology

2015, Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling

Argosy University, Phoenix

Dual Diagnosis Therapist at Partners in Recovery  

 

“I was challenged by my instructors, was part of the campus community and served on the student body government from the first month I began school until the day I graduated with my master’s degree.”

 

Overcame Addiction to Help Others on a Path to Recovery

 

Jodie Gonzalez is a dual diagnosis therapist at Partners in Recovery, working  toward her licensed professional counselor (LPC) credential and LASAC Licensed Associate Substance Abuse Counselor credential with a certification in equine therapy. “That is my passion,” she said. “I want to develop a program that transitions individuals from one life stage to another—mostly [aiding] substance users in the criminal justice system by using farm therapy.”

 

I was raised in a dysfunctional family,” said Gonzalez. “Alcoholics, to be more precise.” Gonzalez describes herself as a child as being “troubled.” She said, “I started fighting a lot in the eighth grade, started using drugs and alcohol in the ninth grade and was in and out of jail up until the age of 32 years old. During that time I suffered much. I suffered sexual, physical and emotional abuse.”

 

Chaos, according to Gonzalez, followed her everywhere. She suffered severe depression, tried to take her own life on more than one occasion and used drugs to self-medicate. “I lost my children, stopped taking care of myself and lived from home to home,” said Gonzalez. “The more I felt, the more I used.” It was in prison that Gonzalez turned her life around. During that time, she served five years in prison and started the healing process and her road to recovery. “I attended every 12-step meeting and accomplished over 240 meetings,” she said. “I walked away with over 32 certificates for classes that I had taken—some I took twice. I completed a one year women in recovery program and I started to sponsor people on the yard.”

 

These experiences showed her that others struggled with the same issues that she did. Gonzalez envisioned ways that she could help others, beginning with taking a distance learning program to earn an associate’s degree. She became the substance abuse clerk on her yard and began to see hope for her future.

 

Following her release from prison, Gonzalez stayed structured while living in a group home and identified a job that she truly wanted. To earn the degrees needed to reach her goal of  helping others in need, she utilized her transitional recovery goal and enrolled in Argosy University. Gonzalez earned both a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She was warned that her background could keep her from becoming a licensed practitioner, but Gonzalez continued studying and passed the national counselor exam (NCE) and the advanced alcohol and drug exam—which qualified her to become a licensed associate substance abuse counselor (LASAC). It took eight months for Gonzalez to prove to the Board of Behavioral Health Examiners that she had moved on from her past. In 2016, she was licensed.

 

Gonzalez added that her biggest struggle was fear—of both success and failure. “I had to sacrifice a lot to get here and I had great support from my Argosy University team and my significant other—I was not allowed to give up,” she said. Her instructor, Dr. Gold, served as both counselor and supporter, empowering Gonzalez to have confidence in her own abilities.

 

Gonzalez added that earning two degrees proved that she had more to give. “I chose Argosy University because the program was focused on psychology so I knew I would get a good education,” she said. “I felt empowered when I walked in and [as I worked] through the program”

 

Gonzalez mentions that her education transformed her into a professional with character and dignity. “I love who I am today,” she said. “I am strong and independent. I bought my first home and car. I have the ability to leave behind a legacy for my children and have become the role model that they deserve.” She takes pride in her empowerment and is thankful to help others. “I get to see individuals come back to life. Nothing is better than that nor more rewarding.”

Facilitates Support Services for Students with Severe Communication Challenges

Dr. Stacy Anderson

2009, Doctor of Psychology in School Psychology

Argosy University, Phoenix
School Psychologist at Paradise Valley Unified School District and Adjunct Faculty at Argosy University, Phoenix

“Argosy University’s curriculum provided a vast array of methods to promote the integration of knowledge and applied skills within a structured and supervised format. This was critical for me to further develop my skills and utilize best practices when working with families.”

 

Facilitates Support Services for Students with Severe Communication Challenges


Dr. Stacy Anderson is a school psychologist with Maricopa County’s Paradise Valley Unified School District, facilitating services for students with severe communication challenges and providing special education needs for preschoolers and elementary students. She conducts psychoeducational evaluations, assists with autism evaluations, constructs and facilitates social skills and therapeutic groups and supervises graduate students in the field of psychology. In addition to her work with the school district, Anderson is an adjunct faculty member at Argosy University, Phoenix where she teaches courses in diversity, counseling, practicum and psychopathology. She also advises on research as a committee member and chair. 

Anderson chose Argosy University based on the school’s practitioner/scholar model. “My goal was to gain an advanced understanding of the human mind and behavior to provide a higher quality of services to children,” she said. “Argosy University’s curriculum provided a vast array of methods to promote the integration of knowledge and applied skills within a structured and supervised format. This was critical for me to further develop my skills and utilize best practices when working with families.”

Anderson earned a Doctor of Psychology in School Psychology from Argosy University, Phoenix. She adds that her education enabled her to pursue her goals to work with children, as well as take on leadership, teaching and supervisory assignments. “There are specific professors and instructors at the university that provided me with guidance, courage and support,” she stated. “They further catalyzed my love of learning about the field of psychology and continue to be phenomenal mentors in my life.”

 

In addition to her studies at Argosy University, Anderson earned a Master of Science in Counseling from The University of Phoenix and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Arizona. Her previous experience includes working with mental and behavioral health agencies as a case manager, holding supervisory positions within health agencies and serving as a master’s level therapist. “I worked with diverse populations including those with significant mental/behavioral health challenges, special education needs, refugee communities and youth housed within juvenile correction facilities,” she said.

 


Anderson recommends that current students seek challenges outside of their comfort levels. “Build and maintain professional relationships during school and in the field,” she states. “Students benefit from developing a professional identity and finding purpose and joy in their chosen profession.”

She’s proud to have successfully co-facilitated and implemented a district unified pre-referral system and a campus wide multi-tier system of supports. Additionally, she worked with local, state and national agencies to pioneer prevention programs and conduct professional development in the community for graduate students and professionals in the field of psychology and education. In collaboration with her administrator, she acquired the gold state award for the implementation of positive behavior intervention and supports for her elementary school campus. Anderson was also nominated to sit on the advisory board for the College of Education at Argosy University.

Supervises Trauma Therapists at Addiction Treatment Center

Supervises Trauma Therapists at Addiction Treatment Center

Jennifer Mathis
2008, Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling
2006, Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology
Argosy University, Phoenix
Director of Trauma, Intern and Outpatient Services at Calvary Healing Center

“Argosy University had a good reputation in the behavioral sciences. It really prepared me to put theory into practice.”

Supervises Trauma Therapists at Addiction Treatment Center

Jennifer Mathis is the director of trauma, intern and outpatient services at Calvary Healing Center, an addiction treatment center in Phoenix, Arizona. Mathis brought structured trauma based therapy to the center and now supervises the organization’s full-time trauma therapists. She also oversees 8-10 interns and manages 15 outpatient staff members. Additionally, she has a private practice focused on trauma that predominately serves women.

Mathis states that she took a long route to her career. She was interested in becoming either a therapist or lawyer after graduating with her bachelor’s degree. Mathis continued her education—even starting law school and a master’s degree in counseling program through a different school—while working full-time. Still, she felt something was missing in her career and education and ultimately settled on psychology.

Mathis decided to pursue a Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology at Argosy University, Phoenix because it offered a mix of both law and psychology. The blended format of on-ground and online learning allowed her to complete her master’s degree in one year. She took a break from her studies for one year but decided to go back and complete a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from the school all while working full-time, taking classes through the blended format and fulfilling her internship requirements.

“Argosy University had a good reputation in the behavioral sciences,” she added. “There were two classes that stood out to me because we did so much role-playing. It really prepared me to put theory into practice.” She mentioned that the one-on-one preparation for practicum helped her with real-world examples of what she’d experience on the job.

She cites her instructor, Dr. Hawkins, as a valued mentor. “Her ability to give examples helped me tremendously to put it all together,” Mathis said. Hawkins provided inspiration because she was working toward a Doctor of Psychology while working full time, teaching and caring for her family.

Mathis is now working toward her own Doctor of Psychology in General Psychology and is proud to have remained focused on her studies—even while going through life’s trials and tribulations. “It was so rewarding to not quit or drop out,” she stated. She just submitted chapter two of her dissertation for approval.

Mathis recommends that current students take care of themselves. “Deal with your own stuff,” she added. “If you haven’t, take a break. It makes you a better therapist if you have moved through things.” She mentioned a favorite inspirational quote for those in the midst of their studies. “With great power comes great responsibility. Hold yourself accountable and do the best of your ability,” she said. In addition to her work at Calvary Healing Center, Mathis is an adjunct professor in the behavioral sciences department at Grand Canyon University.
