What addiction are you struggling with? Alcohol, drugs, sex? It doesn't matter what form it takes, it matters what it is doing to your life. If it has gotten out of control, that your addiction seems to be running your life and narrowing your options, psychotherapy with me could be the help you need. If you could fix it by thinking and figuring it out, you would have done that by now. So why not call me and set up a time to meet?

Addiction issues are wide and varied. Be it alcohol or drug abuse, gambling, food, sexualizing or the internet, substance and situational addictions can consume our lives. Part of the difficulty is understanding one's journey through the continuum of addiction...trying to understand where that shift materialized from indulgence to over-indulgence to true addiction. Besides a behavioral approach we need to understand why we entered this cycle of dependency. Once we begin to take our lives back we are on the road to independence and self regard, the two best weapons that protect us from returning to our addictive cycle.

Have you been struggling with one or more substances like alcohol or drugs? Do you feel like the substance is in control rather than you? Perhaps you have an activity interest that has taken over your life, like shopping, gambling, or pornography. Maybe you’re a workaholic. If you’re truly happy in that pursuit and don’t care how it affects your health or your loved ones, you may not need my help. If, on the other hand, your addiction has become a compulsion which is causing you significant interpersonal, family,or personal grief, I can help you conquer it. I’ve been doing so with others like you for over 25 years and almost all patients have referred a loved one or friend for my help.

When you realize that the behavior that you are engaging in is no longer something that is working for you, then therapy can provide you with the safety and non-judgmental support to explore alternatives to that behavior. As a clinician with over 25 years of experience I can provide you with the confidence and understanding necessary for you to begin to make the changes in behavior that you seek.

While I don't treat addiction to substances, I have a robust treatment plan for other habits or addictions, such as over-eating, smoking, and nail-biting, to name a few. Many of these activities have underlying causes that we must also address. We would have a frank discussion about what proportion of hypnosis and talk therapy would be indicated in your case.

The purpose of Addiction Counseling is to help the client identify for him or herself if there is an addiction present. If this is the case, a variety of cognitive behavioral techniques are utilized as well as mindfulness exercises to help with focusing and how to cope with difficult emotions in healthy ways to become abstinent. In addition, there is a focus on stengths, and what the client has done in the past to abstain from using the substance of choice. Thus, the client can try and implement at least some of these techniques again and stay away from triggers and past negative behaviors that led to relapse. There is also focus on self-esteem building and how to prevent relapse in the future once the client is abstinent.

It is difficult to deal with the neediness of addiction - your own or that of a loved one. The extremes of emotions, confusion and desperation create such havoc in the lives involved, on too many levels to count. Addiction counseling provides a safe way out of the madness. When it seems that all control and power over one's life has been lost - addiction counseling shows another way, addresses the deeper problems that need healing and restores the power of decision to the mind that thought it had no choice. You are not controlled by outside substances or circumstances. Let me guide you back to your real strength - your decision making ability - with gentle, patient, stable support.

You went after work to hang out with friends. You had some drinks or you got high. Everything was fine in the beginning until you noticed that just stopping was no longer easy. I believe that people can reduce or completely stop. The choice is yours to make. There are consequences to working me; you may decide you don't need to be high or drunk to enjoy yourself.
