My name is Bart Plaskoff, and I am a former Educator, Veteran Firefighter, Researcher and Graduate of the University of Southern California (USC) School of Social Work (Top 10). I am also the Founder and Director of the BreakWater Wellness Center.
I understand how hard it may be for you to struggle with the the very thought of seeing a counselor. I am so glad you are here. I understand how common stressors in everyday life, as well as traumatic stress can build up and contribute to anxiety and depression which leads to many of lifes struggles including relationship issues, work problems and even addiction. For many years I have assisted those who are stricken with anxiety, depression, traumatic stressors and those who are continuously exposed to negativity in their everyday family and work environments. Aside from using gold standard talk therapy, I am a trained EMDR Specialist, trained in BrainSpotting, Meditation Techniques, Spiritualism, Mindfulness, and have a vast knowledge and understanding of many religions and cultures, I am also trained in Substance Abuse and Addictive Behaviors. My experience, knowledge and approaches may enable my Clients to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress faster.
I look forward to working with you and assisting you in a positive and healthy approach towards changing your life!
I began my career in the holistic field of addiction treatment in 1982. I began my journey of personal recovery from out of control behaviors and to finally surrender to a continuous substance free life in 1980. My life and career has been and continues to be dedicated to those who need freedom from addictions.
