profile photo of david gibbs

I hold licenses in Ohio and Florida as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, respectively. Additionally, I am a certified addiction professional and qualified supervisor in Florida. With over two decades of experience, I have provided counseling in the areas of mental health, substance abuse, and co-occurring issues. Drawing on my early experiences, I wrote and self-published a book called “Humbug to Happiness” which reflects my passionate belief that everyone is entitled to live a happy life.

I have worked in various environments, including crisis stabilization in clients’ homes, nonprofit and private organizations, and private practice. I have spoken at local and national conferences on mental health and substance abuse and how they impact communities.
