Mike Lobert BS,CAP, ICRC-ADC

Counselor

Mike has over 39 years of experience in the addictions field. He is currently a Certified Addictions Professional with the state of Florida and is internationally certified as well.Mike is trained in Gestalt Therapy, which is a framework for an individual to externalize his/her problems and experience them without intellectual interference. Once this is done, the client has an opportunity to have a “moment of truth,” and say: “teach me what I don’t know and teach me what I think I know but don’t.” Mike believes that Gestalt is a powerful vehicle to help a client arrive at the beginning of his/her lifelong journey of recovery. Mike’s journey on the path of recovery started while he was a client at The Beachcomber in 1980. Since then, he worked for The Beachcomber in the 1980s and 1990s. Mike always stayed connected to The Beachcomber through the years returned to work as a primary counselor in 2016. Mike has worked for 3 generations of Bryans!!! Mike believes that the size of the Beachcomber program, the environment, and the unspoken motto “client care first” are some of the reasons why The Beachcomber gives a real chance for a client to have a “moment of truth.” For over 40 years, The Beachcomber has echoed the truth “together we can do what we can’t do alone.”

We said farewell to our beloved friend Trey Cryer in 2018. Trey Cryer, MS, RRT, CAPwas a member of the Beachcomber therapy staff for over 20 years and a close friend of our founder, Jim Bryan. Trey was known for his “open door” access for all clients and noted for his serious and firm dedication to those in recovery.
