Jana Albright, MA, CATC-IV
Jana is an alumna of Promises from 2008. Upon leaving treatment, it became abundantly clear to her that she wanted to stay connected to Promises and work in the field of addiction, rather than return to her former career as an attorney. She became a certified addiction treatment counselor and began her career at Promises in 2011 as a rehabilitation technician. Jana took a hiatus to return to school for her master’s degree in Psychology, and then returned to Promises in the role of case manager. Currently, Jana is both a primary and family therapist at Promises Malibu.
Jana uses a client-centered therapy approach, emphasizing unconditional positive regard for the client, empathy and non-judgement. She works collaboratively with clients and their families, and employs Motivational Interviewing as the vehicle for discussion and discovery during therapy sessions. Additionally, Jana works with her clients to set up a strong aftercare program to ensure they receive the continuing care and support they need. Jana is committed to helping give clients the best possible outcome for success in recovery.
