Dominique Morisano, PhD, CPsych

Services offered: Individual and Parent-Child Therapy, Psychological Assessment, Consultation. Skype appointments possible.

I treat issues of mood and anxiety as well as more complex issues involving substance use and abuse and trauma. I also have special expertise and interest in personal goal-setting; cannabis (marijuana) dependence; and creative, gifted, and/or talented youth and adults with mood, underachievement, or multipotentiality issues.

I work from a harm-reduction perspective and use a holistic lens to address problems. Using a mix of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and a systems perspective, I assess and address sleep hygiene, daily habits, personal relationships, and coping skills, and incorporate mindfulness and exercise into all treatment planning.

I am a Clinical Psychologist, Researcher, Consultant, Editor, Teacher, and Public Speaker. My clinical work aligns well with my research interests, which revolve around addiction science, the effects of personal goal-setting and mindfulness, at-risk youth, and issues related to improving mental health and addiction systems services.
