About Me

My name is Sean Nolen.   I am excited about making a life changing career move.  I have a vast and well-rounded background, which will allow me to work with and relate to a diverse clientele.  In my Pastoral care position, I counseled adults and teenagers with mental health and substance abuse issues.  I then had the opportunity to start an equipment leasing and sales company.  We were successful while we ran the business for 22 years.  As an entrepreneur I learned every facet of business and how to motivate my employees.  Our company was driven by sales, therefore it was imperative that I knew how to understand a wide range of personalities.  After dealing with substance abuse and now having many years of sobriety, I have found peace in my life, I now want to give back and help those dealing with addiction and mental health issues.  I am currently employed at Hartgrove Hospital as an Mental Health Specialist, where I facilitate group sessions twice a day.   In these group sessions I am working with people who have mental health and substance abuse issues.  I am also currently enrolled at College of DuPage, where I will be receiving my CADC this May 2022.  I will also have my CRSS in the Fall of 2022.  My past and current careers, along with my education, have given me a head start and I am ready to start helping those still in need.
