Devon Emmanuel LCSW, LAC

As a Licensed Addiction Counselor, I specialize in supporting young and adult males transitioning from treatment centers, empowering them to build a strong foundation for recovery and envision the fulfilling life they deserve after leaving substance use behind.

About Devon

As a licensed addiction counselor, I understand how early recovery can feel overwhelming and isolating, with relationships needing repair, boundaries requiring reinforcement, and uncertainty surrounding one’s identity and experiences. It’s normal to feel raw and vulnerable during this time, but you don’t have to navigate it alone.
Through motivational interviewing, I guide clients to uncover their inner strengths and motivations, helping them embrace the challenges of life with resilience and authenticity. With Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), we learn to lean into discomfort, discovering hidden opportunities for growth within life’s hurdles.
Utilizing principles of Internal Family Systems (IFS), we explore the depths of your psyche, understanding the different parts of yourself that influence your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This journey of self-discovery cultivates self-compassion, authenticity, and a renewed sense of purpose.
My own journey of overcoming adversity inspired me to pursue a Master in Social Work at the University of Denver, dedicating myself to creating healing spaces for young adults like you.
Many of my clients come to me saying, “I didn’t get sober for this.” Together, we’ll uncover what you did get sober for, rewriting your story and paving the way for a brighter tomorrow. You’re not alone—the journey begins with you, and I’m here to support you every step of the way.

About Me 

I got into this work because I’ve been there. I’ve faced my own tough times and came out the other side stronger. It’s why I studied social work at the University of Denver and spent time working with guys just like you before jumping into private practice.

So, if you’re tired of feeling stuck or just want to chat about what’s going on, I’m here. Together, we can figure out this wild ride called life.
