Carrie White, Ph.D.

Understanding the complexities of addiction, Dr. White feels it is important to address the person mind, body, and spirit. When indicated, she will collaborate with physicians, psychiatrists, and dieticians to aid with detox and tend to the damage that has been inflicted on the body. With knowledge of the twelve-steps, Dr. White can support individuals through the program. Sympathetic to the fact that addiction is not intentional, Dr. White helps individuals understand what lies beneath the compulsion to drink or use drugs. By gaining insight into the addictive side of the personality, individuals can begin to manage their lives differently. Psychotherapy aids in recovery and facilitates growth which may lead to more gratifying relationships and a greater sense of ease and fulfillment in life.
