About George

George Baltazar, MA, LADC

Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor

Hi, I’m George! 

My mission as a mental health professional is rooted in empathy, understanding, and empowerment. I firmly believe that mental wellness is the cornerstone of our overall well-being, and it's my privilege to guide individuals on their journey toward healing and self-discovery. 


I am dedicated to creating an environment where clients feel safe, heard, and validated, acknowledging that every person's experience is unique and significant. I enjoy working with all people seeking mental health therapy, specializing in healthy alternatives to self-medication and substance use.


With a Master's Degree in Addiction Studies from the Hazelden-Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies and licensure as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC), my expertise allows me to approach each client's journey with a depth of understanding that fosters healing. 


My therapeutic approach is person-centered, rooted in the belief that each individual has the ability to overcome challenges and strive toward personal growth when given the right environment and tools.


As a committed advocate for inclusivity, I am proud to be an LGBTQ-friendly therapist. I provide culturally sensitive counseling that recognizes and values my clients' diverse identities and experiences. Under the expert supervision of Amanda Worth, MA, LMFT, I am constantly refining my skills, broadening my knowledge, and learning new ways to best serve those who entrust me with their care. 


My overarching goal is to help individuals navigate their unique paths toward mental wellness, enabling them to lead fulfilled and empowered lives.


When not helping others you will find me volunteering, kayaking and listening to punk rock.

Currently being supervised by Amanda Wirth, MA, LMFT
