Mark Levine, LICDC-CS, MAC
I have been helping people all of my professional life, including as a Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor - Certified Supervisor, and as a Certified Life Coach. Working as a therapist treating individuals in Cincinnati suffering from substance addictions, I became immersed in the study and teaching of mindfulness.The benefits of mindfulness became readily obvious for me personally, as well as for my clients.
Today I run marathons, and mindfully approach the way I eat and interact with our environment. And in my spare time I’m writing a rock musical, “HIGHER” — about the roller-coaster of emotions that is the truth of individuals struggling with a heroin addiction.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been struggling for a short time, a few years, or let’s be honest — maybe several decades. You can change. I know, I’ve been there too. I want to help. It’s my passion. Guiding people through transformations is what gets my juices flowing each and every day.
Stayed tuned for the next musical workshop for HIGHER: Mark’s original rock musical. Follow American Legacy Theatre for more information or to help with the development of the production.
