Tanya Aguilar is a Certified Addiction Treatment Counselor I at Oceanside Malibu. She completed her education courses in Addictive Disorder Studies at DLCAS. Tanya studies at Capella University working towards her bachelor’s in Psychology with an emphasis in Substance Abuse. She will be transferring to the PSY-D program upon completion. She has been involved in 12 step groups since 2013 and uses her own personal experience and recovery to empower clients through the treatment process and to help aid them in building their lives again. Tanya is grateful to work at Oceanside Malibu because not only is she able to provide compassion and encouragement as a counselor to our clients when they first enter treatment, but also provide guidance and assistance to clients in case management, helping them put together the stepping stones to a new life without the use of alcohol or drugs.
