Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselor
More About Ryan Kordiak
I have a profound interest in providing quality care to individuals who struggle with substance use issues. I am extremely passionate about helping others, and enjoy aiding clients with enthusiasm, respect, and empathy. As a person in long term recovery for substance use disorder, I am personally invested in the recovery process. I understand that confronting addiction can feel like an extremely overwhelming endeavor and I have a tremendous amount of respect for anyone who is willing to make positive changes in their life. I take great pride and satisfaction in helping clients gain the necessary skills they will need to identify, treat, and manage their substance use concerns. I feel privileged in providing services that will not only help clients gain a second chance at life, but discover a quality of life they never imagined possible.
I provide enthusiasm, insight, encouragement, and humor in my clinical approach. Although addressing substance use issues can be intimidating at times, that doesn't mean you can’t have fun while you do it. Specific treatment modalities that I practice are motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, family systems, and 12 step facilitation.
In my personal life I enjoy fitness (hedonic rehabilitation), reading, watching boring documentaries that my wife can't stand, camping, and cannoning. My favorite place in the entire world is the boundary Waters Canoe Aria and I try to do a weeklong solo trip there once a year.
