Addiction is way of escaping from life, escaping from yourself, escaping from pain. The addict is a slave to his or her addiction. Whatever the problem is you are escaping from gets worse and more complicated. Often the addict losses his/her sense of self and self esteem, relationships are damaged, and other losses occur. The addict tends to becomes self centered in their addiction and hurts people close to him/her. The addict may become less present with self & other. Recovery involves first & foremost getting sober and working to stay sober. It also means coming to terms with the pain that you are fleeing from and repairing the damage done. I work with drug, alcohol, sex and love addiction

I do not specialize in addictions, however I do work successfully with those who are in recovery, helping them to work on their relationships and building on the foundational skills learnt in rehab or alongside 12 step programs. I combine practical coaching skills with therapeutic exploration of family patterns and how these have played into addictive behaviors.

Problems with mood altering chemicals (e.g., alcohol, heroin) or behaviors (e.g., gambling, sex) are still not well understood by scientists. Explanations for compulsive use which claim the cause is a disease or brain disorder lack supporting evidence. Counseling an individual with such problems requires taking into consideration a wide variety of contributing environmental, biological, psychological (e.g., mental health problems) factors. Treatment is typically tailored to the client and will usually involve addressing motivational factors, the client's goals, and educating the family on how they can exert a reinforcing and supportive role in the client's resolution of their problem(s).

Addiction is an insidious disease; substances promise solace. but provide utter wreckage. This is often difficult to see, and even when a person has acceptance of the nature of his or her illness, change can be more than difficult. I provide empathic, direct therapy to clients suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. This is my personal and professional passion, I too was once in your seat. Hope is here.
