My name is Dylan Sullivan and I’m currently a Primary Therapist at at Legacy Healing Center In Cincinnati OH. I also recently graduated with my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of the Cumberland’s in Williamsburg, KY and was lucky enough to receive my Licensed Professional Counselor Licensure from the State of Ohio shortly thereafter. I am also currently certified in the State of Ohio as a Peer Recovery Supporter, due to my personal lived experience with recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. In addition to my counseling masters I hold a Masters in Pubic History and Museum Management from Northern Kentucky University, and a Bachelors in History from Ohio University.Looking at my education experience and seeing two history degrees, you might scratch your head a bit . Given the fact that I now work in substance use and mental health treatment a relevant question might be “why the career change? “. And the answer to that, is that while history has and always will be a love and passion of mine, some time ago I managed to stop a horrible addiction to drugs and alcohol with the help of some fantastic counselors and doctor at a rehabilitation program I attended. After several failed attempts at treatment, was lucky enough to have a moment of clarity, get clean, and take recovery seriously. Once I did that, I began interacting with other recovering addicts and found a sense of purpose that I had not known before. I also found that I was more passionate about helping these fellow recovering addicts than I ever was about history. Because of that passion, I made the decision to go back to school for my degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and make that passion my career.I’ve only been in the field since late 2020, but I’ve already had the opportunity to work with some truly amazing people in previous roles as a Peer Recovery Supporter, CDCA ,CT, and outreach associate. I’m beyond excited to continue my journey in the field as a therapist at Legacy ,and it is my hope I will be able to make a positive impact on the lives of the clients I work with just as the counselors who helped to save my life did for me.
