I work with overspending and sexual addiction. Both of these are what are called "process addictions." With spending without much forethought and with sexual behavior regardless of consequences, lives are out of control. With both of these impulse disorders, I recommend 12 step groups as well as individual therapy with me. The groups help the person see their problems as they hear other people's stories and they also give hope and "sponsors." Our treatment helps them find out what needs they are really trying to meet and get in touch with their real feelings rather than "doping"with overspending or with sexually acting out. Note: I do not treat alcoholism or drug addiction.

Are you wondering if your use of alcohol and/or other chemical substances is beginning to take control of your life? Chances are you started drinking or using so that you could cope with life, but now you're finding that it's getting harder and harder to cope. It can be overwhelming to think about quitting and staying quit. I can help you to assess your chemical use and decide what, if any, changes you need to make. I also offer an ear acupuncture treatment that lessens cravings and withdrawal symptoms while also helping to manage depression and anxiety.
