Substance Abuse and Mood Disorders Counseling in Austin, Texas
I provide counseling for substance abuse, which is frequently accompanied by depression and/or anxiety. Historically, the substance abuse or dependence has been treated first, followed by treatment for the mood disorder if those symptoms persisted. However, research has shown that the best results occur when both are assessed and treated simultaneously.
Having been a substance abuse counselor and clinical director for substance abuse programs in Texas as well as New York State, I have extensive experience in treating both substance abuse and co-occuring disorders.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule an initial appointment.
