He can help provide a supportive, non-judgmental setting for success or a push to help you confront your current life issues.

In addition to being an LMHC, Mr. Skow is a credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselor (CASAC) recognized by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) as well as an MBA.  He views chemical dependency as a progressive and pervasive disease that can affect every aspect of a person’s life. It can interfere with work, family stability and social relationships and impair physical and emotional health. Legal and emotional problems are common. If untreated, chemical dependency can lead to devastating consequences not only for the chemically dependent person but for the significant others in his or her life as well.

Mr Skow earned his Master’s of Science in Mental Health Counseling with honors from Touro College and completed his Master’s of Business Administration at Hofstra University. He is currently a member of the American Counseling Association and supporter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America where he donates his time to helping young adults cope with the emotional challenges of these diseases.

He had previously served as a valuable resource for the treatment team at the Charles K. Post addiction treatment center where he supported other behavioral health counselors and substance abuse specialists in providing personalized recovery oriented services to a diverse demographic that included dually diagnosed men and women ages 18 and older.

Mr. Skow is currently researching and developing a comprehensive curriculum designed to address and treat the specific needs of individuals whose video game addiction has lead to the reduction or abandonment of social, occupational or other recreational activities.
