Dual diagnosis is a medical term used to describe a drug or alcohol addiction that is coupled with a mental illness. Dual diagnosis is a treatable condition and research has demonstrated that the most efficient approach is to treat dual diagnosis by addressing the chemical dependency and the emotional/psychiatric illness concurrently.
During my professional career I have successfully treated individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents.
I utilize an integrated multi-modal treatment approach that is rooted in evidence-based psychotherapy such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and family systems. I realize that selecting a psychotherapist is a personal choice, therefore, if I can be of assistance during this process, please feel free to contact me for a consultation.
