Raúl de la O


Counselor, JUNTOS

Hi, my name is Raúl. I am a Certified Gambling Addictions and Drug & Alcohol Addictions Counselor. I have been with Emergence since 2006. I am bilingual and multicultural, my naive roots being Latino.

My experience at Emergence has been rewarding, challenging and rich because of the possibility to apply my skills helping a broad number of individuals in need of being heard, directed and wanting one more opportunity to make things right. 

I spent the greater part of my first fourt and a half years working as a counselor in the gambling field with the Problem Gambling Helpline and individual counseling. In 2011 I was given the opportunity to add Alcohol and Drug treatment to my clinical experience by becoming the Juntos Program counselor.

I would like to add that I have been a passionate advocate for the Latino Community for the last 35 years. It is a pleasure to serve my clients and the Latino Community in which I've lived since 1978.
