Emily Guarnotta, Psy.D. — Contributor
Emily Guarnotta, Psy.D. holds a doctorate degree in clinical psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in San Diego, California. She has a passion for working with clients struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues and has experience working in both residential and outpatient addiction treatment facilities. Her treatment approach includes providing evidence-based practices, including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and contingency management, in a supportive and non-confrontational manner. Emily strongly feels that treatment should be tailored to each unique individual and there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to recovery. She often incorporates family therapy, spirituality, and other interventions into treatment in order to help her clients build a fulfilling life without drugs and alcohol. She also has experience working with college students, clients with severe mental illness, and delivering crisis intervention services. In addition to her clinical work, Emily enjoys conducting research looking at characteristics associated with addiction recovery and presenting her findings at conferences around the country. Emily is currently based in New York.
