Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wood "I believe that trauma and addiction are complex problems that affect people in a variety of ways, undermining mood, compromising performance at school and at work, and distorting family life and relationships with friends. Psychotherapy can help in several ways: First, by clarifying the scope and stage of the problem so that an effective treatment plan can be developed; then, by providing education and support and helping people to acquire the insight and skills needed to manage emotions and behaviors that have become problematic for them. Since people are affected by these disorders in so many ways, they often need assistance from many people as they work toward a stable recovery. I strongly support involvement with 12-step programs and I have close working relationships with professionals in other fields who can become part of a comprehensive treatment team capable of addressing the multiple impacts of trauma and addiction. These include physicians, career development specialists, nutritionists, and exercise physiologists. At the same time, I recognize that just getting started in psychotherapy is a huge step in and of itself, and work to match the intensity and breadth of treatment to an individual"s unique needs and resources."
