James “Jim” Bertone

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, LCADC


I am a Nevada licensed clinical social worker as well as a Nevada licensed clinical drug and alcohol counselor with 30 years of experience. Therapy can involve harm reduction or strictly abstinent-based approaches. Clinical interventions are offered in individual sessions. Emphasis for all treatment interventions is on the importance of creating a plan of care, based on close collaboration with the client. I assist my client in articulating what life area is needing change and to be clear on what the goal would be for that desired change.

Clients are encouraged to explore alternative approaches to their chosen interventions and thereby become their own ‘’experts’’ on the power of choice. Motivational interviewing is the communication style utilized in my service with clients. . A mind-body connection can be a life changer. At the end of the day we are all so much more than we appear.

I hold the belief that many clients intuitively know the solution to any given life dilemma and simply are in need of the right professional environment. It is important to explore all aspects of the problem as well as any cost or benefit from the resolution. Mindfulness meditation instruction is offered with any modality of therapy.
