I like to work with clients, including adolescents, to help them on their journey to wellness as they overcome addictions. In addition to substance and alcohol addictions, I also like to work with clients who have addictions that are rooted in technology, such as addictions to video games, online chat rooms, video chatting, social media sites, and sexting.

The compulsion to repeat destructive habits brings shame, damages relationships, and controls our ability to live freely. It is possible to learn new coping, change habits and rewire your brain through a combination of personal work, hypnosis, and mindfulness. Freedom from self defeating and outdated coping habits is possible when you participate in a healing theraputic relationship. This is what I offer.

Like most people, therapist have their own set of addictions, and I must admit, I would probably classify myself as a "coffee addict." However, when addictions interfere with life including work, employment, and close relationships, there may be something more that needs to be addressed such as family history or patterns of addiction via therapy. I work with clients to help them establish different lifestyle choices, and how one lifestyle change can bring about a healthy "domino" effect in other aspects of their life.

For some people addictions and compulsions are just a way to get rid of bad feelings. The problem is that the bad feelings always come back. Compulsive and addictive behaviors - like obsessive and compulsive disorder, gambling, sexual addictions, eating disorders, cutting, etc. - can work very much like alcohol and substance abuse. They are ways of controlling strong emotional reactions of anxiety, anger, sadness, loneliness or guilt. I use 90-minute and 3-HOUR SESSIONS to identify and fully resolve the roots of your emotional reactions so that they no longer trigger the urge to self-medicate.

When a person is struggling with addiction, misusing alcohol or substances, they are not well mentally, physically, or spiritually. A person does not have to drink (or use) every day to have a problem. To begin recovery, one must first admit there is a problem, and then be willing to make changes and accept help. People CAN and do recover and improve their lives if recovery is made their number one priority....when it comes to sobriety, "half measures avail (us) nothing" - or at least not enough to fully recover. My addiction treatment approach is Integrative: this means that along w/ individual therapy, we integrate other therapeutic healing modalities and supports for an optimal outcome.

Addiction is the symptom of a bigger problem. What is the bigger problem that leads one to the addiction? That is where therapy comes in. Addiction is complicated but it is what lead you there that is really the problem and is really what the person needs to work on to grow and change into a better person. I have seen people struggle with this over and over. When you can really look at what keeps a person stuck in addiction, and change that piece with them, is when you see success!
