I believe that treatment for addictions is trying to catch up with evidence-based science. The most studied forms of therapy include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Contingency Management Therapy.
People with addiction have unique biopsycho social histories and environments. It is important to me, as a psychologist, to discover each patient’s individual pathway: 1.) toward the abuse of drugs and 2.) away from abuse toward recovery.
I began to study psychology as a freshman in college with the goal of understanding myself and others. I am attracted to the science of psychology and the human brain. I am motivated to practice psychology as a result of my deep humanitarian commitment to helping and serving.
