Substance Abuse and Eating Disorders

Family memebers impacted by substance abuse

My family therapy practice specializes in the unique challenges faced when a loved one has an addiction, eating disorder, or persistent mental illness and its effect on the family unit.

A family member struggling with an addiction, eating disorder, or severe mental illness can be incredibly stressful for all involved. The popular treatment and therapy methods focus on isolating the family from the struggling individual, leaving the family praying that all will be well when the individual returns to the family.

These treatment strategies are rarely effective and leave families in need of as much support as the individual. I have extensive experience providing therapy to families whose loved one is in intensive treatment to overcome this turbulent period in their lives.

Carla holds certification in the knowledge and treatment of personality disorders, specializing in support and therapy for the families affected, as well as the individual. I empower families to be a part of the healing process and focus on therapies and strategies with the entire family in mind.
