My approach to treating addiction is contingent on your abstinence. Once you are in a program so you are not using, my approach is to help you examine your need for the addiction and what purpose it serves in your life. This self-knowledge is helpful in understanding why you may feel controlled by your addiction, what it is defending against, and finding the willpower to remain abstinent.

People can have many addictions, from drugs and alcohol, to gambling, caffeine, sex and nicotene, etc. We can have addictive and controling personalities as well. I help people identify these traits in themselves through personality inventories, then identifying areas to make changes. Being empathetic, understanding, caring and patient, I believe I can help people overcome these addictions and live happy and normal lives. It requires the client to want to change, seek strength from others and maybe a higher power, and strong desire to make changes in their lives. I use mostly cognitive behavioral therapy, person centered, solution and realty therapies, give weekly assignments, etc.

I use a cognitive behavioral therapy approach to working with people with addiction, which is a research and evidence based approach. I provide tools to help people identify and avoid their triggers and cope with their urges and cravings. I also help them feel better by teaching effective relaxation skills and coping skills. People who work with me also learn how to set better boundaries, learn problem solving skills, and live a life free from addiction. In the event that a higher level of care is needed, I provide direction and resources to help people through the process of living addiction free.

I am a Certified Addictions Counselor. I have been treating people with addictions for over 25 years. Although I respect the traditions and teachings of AA, I do not ordinarily use AA philosophy in my practice. Rather, I use Smart Recovery and Rational Recovery techniques. I believe that we all can learn new ways of thinking, feeling, and doing...and that includes engaging in addictive behaviors.
