David Brooks, MA, LCADC

David Brooks is a Criminogenics Specialist and currently the owner/clinical director of Brooks Behavioral Health Services, LLC. Before starting his own business, David was employed for close to ten years with the Frederick County Health Department as the Criminal Justice Program Manager. As a program manager, he was the treatment coordinator of both Frederick County Drug and Veteran's Treatment Court while supervising the Frederick County Detention Center Substance Abuse Program (PROJECT 103).

In his professional life outside of owning a business, he is also an adjunct professor at Frederick Community College in the Human Services Department. This position helps him sharpen his own skills by teaching the art of counseling to new prospects in the field. Before acquiring his masters in Educational/Clinical Counseling, he was a Magnet Speech and Debate Teacher in Houston, TX for several years which caused him to have an interest in the mind of his students. The ability to inspire, grow, and challenge his students and clients has been evident in his performance as an educator and a counselor since graduating from Prairie View A&M University with a BA in Public Relations Communication with a minor in Integrated Social Sciences.

Throughout his career he has prided himself on maintaining a high level of care and integrity when working with his clients and students, and he looks forward to the opportunity to exhibit the same professional ethics in his private counseling.

He is a proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha and the church community. Both entities give him the integrity and inspiration to treat people the way that they should be treated and loved. David Brooks and his wife started Brooks Behavioral Health Services, LLC because they knew there was a need in the community that was not filled at the current time.

David is also available for public speaking engagements and consulting. Please do not hesitate to call the office to set up a time to discuss how he can help your organization.
