This guy is absolutely horrible. In addition to being controlling, he is very egotistical and rude. The only down to earth part of him is his office appearence. Regardless if you have a drug issue or not, DO NOT GO TO THIS GUY. I understand that this field is complicated, and time-consuming, but being a SOB isnt necessary. I'm not a rude or violent person, but after meeting this guy, I seriously considered hiring a hitman. Also, if yyou are faced with a return- to - work situation, I repeat, DO NOT GO TO THIS GUY IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE. SERIOUSLY! I had a situation where I was forced to do the return to work deal, and instead of making a wise decision, and building a simple client/patient relationship, this imbecile forced me to go to a full-on rehab in another state for 30 days.Once again, im not a upset, in denial, mad at the world person. I feel that one should be held accountable for their actions. However, I WOULD TRUST A BUM ON THE STREET FOR ANY KIND OF TREATMENT AS OPPOSE TO MR. YBARRA. HE IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST PERSON FOR THIS FIELD, AND HE DOES NOT HELP AT ALL. THE ONLY REASON HE'S in THIS FIELD IS BECAUSE HE READ SOME BOOKS AND PASSED A FEW EXAMS. HE IS NOT A PEOPLE PERSON, AND THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO THINK HE'S A GOOD COUNSELOR ARE THOSE THAT DON'T HAVE TO BE SUBJECTED TO HIS INCOMPASSIONATE, TYRANICAL, TERRIBLE THERAPY. PHILLIP, IF YOU HAPPEN TO READ THIS REVIEW, YOU ABSOLUTELY SUCK, AND I HOPE TO GOD YOUR BUSINESS FAILS. YOUR A MALPRACTICING IDIOT WHO NEEDS HELP HIMSELF IN COMMUNICATION.
