My aim as an addictions counselor is to offer a compassionate and non judgmental environment where my clients feel free to learn and grow and experience healing. My perspective is to provide those struggling with addictions effective coping tools and skills and instill hope that will help them eliminate their addiction, improve their relationships and live in the freedom of long term sobriety. These skills include distraction, self soothing, understanding triggers to use, creating an action plan, increasing ones support group, and challenging the negative core permissive beliefs that allow the addiction to continue.

Do you use drugs or alcohol to numb pain, self-medicate, or fill or void in your life? Do you use alcohol and drugs to cope and forget about your problems? If so, you are not alone. You are strong enough to face whatever life throws your way, and we can do it together. We can work together to help you gain enough courage to work through the storms of life and emotional pain rather than turning to drugs and/or alcohol. We can form a partnership, a therapeutic alliance, to help guide you through the tough times in life. In a safe, compassionate environment, we can fully address life stressors and create healthy coping skills to help you cope with whatever storms you face in life.

My approach to the treatment of addictions is unorthodox. I begin with the assumption that addictions originate with a person's attempt at solving a problem. Initially the addiction is only a small part of the puzzle until it grows to cause serious side effects. Underneath the addiction lies the root causes (e.g. stress, relationship issues, career challenges) and addictions are the way people cope. At some point, the addiction dominates; however, treatment should spend a significant time focusing on the underlying factors as well as the addiction cycle.

Sex addiction differs from any other addiction. Overcoming it is not as simple as going "cold turkey". It is about understanding where it originated for you and about learning to have a meaningful relationship with "sex". Most sex addicts enter treatment due to the fatigue of leading a "double life" or due to being caught by their loved one(s). This "bottom" is a fantastic motivator to change. Don't lose sight of what it can mean to be the person you know you want to be. Myself and the staff at Healing Solutions Counseling Center can provide the supportive services you need to heal from the inside out.

I do not do addition counseling. It is outside my area of expertise. But I will say that I often see someone is a couple who denies being an alcoholic despite reporting behavior that surely sounds like an addiction. The way I approach this is to ask him to "prove to me" that he or she is not addicted by not drinking for a full week (or two). If they can do this, then I conclude that we are not dealing with an addiction, but rather with something else.

Addiction can be very destructive for individuals and families, children and adults. It knows no demographic boundaries and therefore anyone is at risk. It is my professional opinion that individuals who struggle with addiction should not be expected to change any differently than those individuals struggling with any other issue. That is, change is a process and doesn't come overnight. Therefore providing a non-judgmental, non-confrontational, and non-adversarial therapeutic environment is paramount to achieving stated goals since shame and guilt play a key role in the cycle of addiction. Clients should be held accountable for their actions, however not shamed by their clinician.
