Therapists & Coaches
Somiya (Sam) Murtadi MS, ALC, ADC
Hello, my name is Sam. I have been in recovery from addiction since 2011, giving me a unique perspective on the dynamics of therapy, as well as on addiction and recovery. I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and have a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Troy University. I am also certified as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor through The Alabama Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association (ADC-941). Additionally, I am an Associate Licensed Counselor in the State of Alabama (License Number: C3426A) working under Terry Bradley MS, LPC.
My therapeutic background is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and I also pull from various other modalities such as Mindfulness, Narrative, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. My other areas of interest include Motivational Interviewing, Person Centered Therapy, and Art and Music therapy, were I can use my own creativity as a model to encourage my clients to express themselves and their feelings in a variety of ways. I work with adults, teens, and children. I specialize in substance abuse, trauma, teen issues, men's issues, and LGBTQ+.
In my free time I especially enjoy traveling, having been to various countries in Northern America, the Caribbean, and Europe. I also enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and my three dogs and cat.
I'm now accepting Alabama Medicaid and Cigna Behavioral Health Insurance.
Jean E. Driggers, MS
Hi, my name is Jean E. Driggers. I have a Bachelor degree in Psychology and a Masters in Criminal Justice under the area of corrections. Also, I'm about to graduate with a Masters in Counseling. I have worked for 5 years school based out of a mental health center. Also, I taught in Junior College, as well as taught English in Korea for 5 years. I worked with high risk children through various services. Additionally, I taught drug intervention/prevention and other prevention classes.
My therapeutic background is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, using other models, such as DBT, when deemed necessary. I believe my background in counseling and education lend to my life coaching skills.
I have suffered trauma in my life and have depression and PTSD disorder. I have received treatment and counseling for them as well. I believe this allows me to better see these issues from the clients point of view.
My Christian faith is very important to me. I participate in a lot of church activities, including teaching Sunday school and volunteering. In my spare time I also love spending time with friends and family. Additionally, I enjoy doing arts and crafts, including floral arrangements.
