New Substance Use Counselor Joins Team

June 18, 2019

Natalie Oredola, CSAC, has joined The Barry Robinson Center’s Community Based Services division as a substance use clinician. Oredola serves as a group leader for BRC’s Intensive Outpatient Program. She will work with teens as they progress through The Seven Challenges® treatment approach.

Prior to joining BRC in May 2019, Oredola worked with Bradley Hospital in Rhode Island as a milieu associate. Bradley Hospital is the nation’s first psychiatric hospital devoted exclusively to children and adolescents. The hospital is a national center for training and research in child and adolescent psychiatry.

“Natalie is an excellent addition to our team,” said Jennifer Stolpe, MS, CSAC, substance use program manager. “She’s dedicated to children and adolescents who struggle with mental health and substance abuse. And she displays great compassion, empathy and enthusiasm in her work.”

She is a certified substance abuse counselor through the Virginia Department of Health Professionals Board of Counseling.

Stolpe marks her one-year anniversary with BRC in June 2019. She came from Arizona, where she worked for several years as a clinic manager, clinician and community outreach director. She has a master’s degree in Addiction Counseling from Grand Canyon University and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Arizona State University.

Besides her counseling work with teens in BRC programs, she has made many connections in the community. Stolpe is passionate about developing resources to help teens struggling with substance use and to support parents through awareness and prevention activities.

She serves on the City of Virginia Beach Youth and Community Action Team, the Opioid Prevention Coalition, and the Clinical Skills Evaluation Collaboration (CSEC) board. She also volunteers with AMIkids and the Partnership for Prevention.
