Justin Wolff is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor with over 8 years’ experience in behavioral health. Prior to his counseling career, Justin was also a teacher, school counselor, and presenter for parenting seminars. As Clinical Director, he draws on his expertise in the fields of both counseling and education to deliver the exceptional programming offered at Ripple Recovery Ranch. His treatment philosophy is that everyone can be moved forward; it just takes meeting each client where they are at and collaborating with them to find the best way to achieve their individual treatment goals. As a CBT clinician, he leads our team of counselors in helping clients to identify the negative core beliefs that are holding them back from the life of fulfilling recovery they are seeking. In this process, clients recognize core beliefs are not core truths. They are simply what one chooses to believe. The therapeutic process helps clients choose to adopt core beliefs that are supportive of their health and happiness.

Reviews at a Glance
- Aftercare Support
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
