Hello, I specialize in addiction/dual diagnosis, but treat various mental health concerns as well (depression, anxiety, relationship problems, etc.). I commonly utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and a psychodynamic approach, but I alter treatment depending on your needs.
Life can be difficult at times. Feeling stagnant as well as drug and alcohol concerns are often a result of deeper struggles such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, and obstacles in your daily life. If you are feeling stuck and are grappling with how to move forward I can help guide you through it.
Additionally, I am trained in helping concerned significant others (CSOs) of individuals who are wrestling with addictions. I discuss/ teach empirically supported behavioral techniques to family members in order to increase their loves one's motivation to get better. Instead of detaching, I remind CSOs that their love is essential and has power to help. I am one of a few therapists trained in this in CA.
