She offers individual, couples, family and group therapy for people who have an addiction to alcohol or drug abuse.
Therapy with a trained counselor has become increasingly popular for many years as a result of increased understanding of our societal and cultural patterns that influence how we respond to stressors and the emotions we experience. With this knowledge, people are becoming more able to cope effectively with stressful situations and develop methods for reducing the negative impacts they have on their own lives. Unfortunately, most of us don’t know how to recognize, or have learned how to deal with stress and develop a stress management strategy. Unfortunately, the consequences of not addressing the stressors that cause these issues can be deadly. This is where a licensed therapist like Joanna Ware can help. A therapist should have an extensive background in the area of psychology and also in addiction treatment and recovery. In addition to their knowledge of the mind, they also need to have training in the areas of family therapy, alcohol/drug addiction and sexual abuse and counseling.
Joanna Ware believes that there are many types of people who are suffering from substance abuse or alcoholism. Many of these individuals do not know that they have a problem because they feel that the problem doesn’t exist or that it will not affect them in any significant way. However, Joanna feels that these problems can often lead to serious physical and mental health concerns that need to be addressed.
