Licensed Marital & Family Therapist
I have worked with clients in all stages in the cycle of addiction and recovery. This has allowed me to understand the power and control that addiction has over the addict and the family system. It is my belief that no one begins the life of addiction with the intentions to succumb to the power it contains. With support, empowerment, and commitment, I have seen clients overcome the chains of addiction and become free to live the life of which they are capable.

Clients will benefit from an understanding of the addiction process--how it starts, how it develops, and the end result of addition. Addictions are learned behavior and can range from drugs and alcohol to eating disorders, pornography and sexual addictions. Biblical principles will be used to help clients gain the tools needed to reverse the addiction process.

At the root of addiction is deep emotional pain. With that kind of pain, of course a person wants to "numb out" or forget for a little while. Others with that kind of pain distract themselves with busy-ness, taking care of everyone else (codependency), overworking, doing computer games excessively, gambling, viewing pornography, and countless other compulsive behaviors. Without treating the root cause-- deep emotional pain-- people with addictions will relapse again and again. Work with a therapist trained in EMDR trauma therapy to resolve the root cause. Nothing else works to resolve emotional trauma like EMDR therapy. Visit EMDRIA's website or give me a call to explain how it works.
