Terri R. Yanoviak, LCDC

My name is Terri Yanoviak and I am the counselor for the Chemical Dependency Program in Katy. I am a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC) specializing in adult and adolescent outpatient treatment. I received my LCDC from St. Thomas University in Houston. Through my own lifetime journey with addiction and recovery I discovered a passion in working with people who are battling substance abuse issues. I have a natural innate calling to help people and can quickly establish a great rapport and harmony with all my clients.

It is my goal to help you reach your full potential in life and realize that you can enjoy happiness substance free. Take that first step and come meet me where you are, this is a judgement free area. I know you will love our dynamic group setting where we practice didactic techniques and process through internal and external barriers to recovery. Stop hurting, and begin your recovery today! In my spare time I like to travel, sail, hike, cook and read while lounging on a beach.
