Austin Sopko, Primary Counselor
Austin Sopko is a primary counselor with an educational and experiential background. Before coming to Mountain’s Edge, he worked as a primary counselor at White Birch Recovery in Carbondale, PA. He earned his first experiences in treatment working as a behavioral tech at Marworth Treatment Center (Waverly, PA) and Little Creek Lodge (Lake Ariel, PA). Austin has studied at Pace University and Hunter College in New York, NY. He is currently earning a degree in Human and Social Services at Bryant & Stratton College.
Austin is an expert in spirituality, religion, philosophy and psychology. He uses his auto-didactic knowledge to help his clients unify clinical and spiritual concepts and break through preconceived ideas holding them back from sobriety. In Austin’s words: “I like to use ancient spiritual wisdom and communicate it through simple and practical principles that uncover the false narratives that uphold an addictive lifestyle. By putting these principles into practice, people can discover that the solution is inside of us beneath layers of false conditioning.”
