SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND TEENS

Helping teenagers and emerging adults struggling with drugs and alcohol requires a special expertise and sensitivity.  I provide both.  Substance abuse treatment is a dual process.  You need to understand the deeper issues that underlie it while simultaneously learning new coping skills to manage them.  For teenagers and college students, this all must be done while figuring out who you are and navigating increasing levels of independence.

  
Through a combination of psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive interventions, I will help you process your past while living in the present and building your future.  I also bring to the work a wide breadth of knowledge about 12-step groups and other resources.


Recovery isn’t just about stopping using.  It’s about building a life full of meaning.  Together, we’ll help you do that.
