Dr. Louise Stanger is an expert clinician with over 35 years experience working with families and conducting interventions. Her interventions are extremely beneficial for families who have loved ones experiencing mental health disorders and substance abuse disorders, including alcohol and other drugs, process addictions such as eating disorders, gambling, or sex addiction.

One of Dr. Stanger’s greatest strengths is her ability to create movement within the family, helping loved ones accept needed treatment. She works hand in hand with other professionals, therapists, and treatment centers to ensure the family’s success. With Dr. Stanger’s leadership, families are able to develop new paths to follow.

Dr. Stanger works with families for as long as it takes. Sometimes interventions can be completed in as little as two sessions, where a typical intervention is conducted in two to three days. Others may take longer, from three days to several weeks of preparation time. When crisis demands it, she has completed interventions in as short as 7 hours – from meeting the parents, staging the intervention, and entering the client into a treatment program that evening.

Once the intervention is complete, family members are guided towards appropriate resources and continue in a Solution-Focused Coaching relationship with Dr. Stanger. This allows the family to discover new ways to live while facing the trauma they have been through, and learn how to recover and get healthy again.
