“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” – Jackie Robinson
Angelo is a counselor at our Dual Diagnosis facility. Angelo has an extensive background in docu-reality TV, specializing in human transformational stories. He directed and produced three seasons of A&E’s Emmy award-winning show, Intervention, a show that follows addicts through their daily life, revealing the devastation their dependency has brought to their family and friends. With over 15 years of sobriety, addiction wasn’t new to him, but the stories on Intervention inspired him to go back to school to continue his education in addiction studies.
Angelo’s passion for human stories has translated into his role here at Visions, where he gets to guide clients in a more positive direction. His expertise is in facilitating 12 Step modalities in a treatment setting. His work on Intervention has also inspired him to train as an interventionist with Ken Seeley, where he can apply real-life experiences with new clinical comprehension.
Angelo likes to spend his days off surfing, doing yoga, and spending time with his girlfriend. His nights are usually spent watching films, cooking, and dining around Los Angeles because he loves great food! He has recently completed writing his first feature film script, which has been inspiring him creatively.
