I have many years of experience helping those struggling from substance addictions learn the path of sobriety. My approach to addiction treatment is holistic, focusing on regenerating a person's relationship to their body, mind and soul. Without this focus on the entirety of the individual, success in recovery is often limited. I truly believe that addiction robs the human spirit of the ability to accurately think, feel and experience the true world. I work with each person to lift the veil and discover the emotional and psychological pain in need of kindness, discovery and healing in order to begin the life-long journey of sobriety.

Additions are often our way of numbing ourselves to the daily realities of life. They are how we escape for a few minutes or a few hours. We know life will be there when we return, but we just want to pretend they won't and have a break. The problem is that addictions can become bigger than the challenges we were trying to avoid. When we feed an additions we rob ourselves of an opportunity to grow. We rob ourselves of the chance to face and overcome something we're afraid of. Addiction counseling at Sprout Family Clinics is about facing and overcoming what we've been avoiding; but with baby steps.

Who are you and who do you want to be? Accepting that addiction is real is the first step, deciding to make a change is the next. Addiction is not a simple thing but after working at Gateway Foundation for several years I can help you to determine the next steps to becoming a person who has an awareness of what triggers you to use, how to deal with that trigger in other ways, how to calm yourself, deal with relationships and the world around you from a strengths-based perspective and gain the self-respect and energy you need to make a fresh start. Often guided imagery, music and art can be helpful in finding self-compassion.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 877-606-6161.

12 step programs are great - for some people. Whether you're 'working a program' or not I will help you understand and overcome your addictive behaviors, whatever they might be. I believe that reducing the amount of harm caused by addiction is a worthy goal in and of itself, so I don't expect you to be 'cured' of your addictive behaviors when you come to me for counseling. My mission is to meet you wherever you are in your process - as long as you have a desire to reduce your risk and improve the quality of your life.

One of the most amazing things is witnessing people free themselves from the depths of addiction. I use multiple treatment approaches to first help an individual stabilize the addictive process. Then I help them work to fully understand the underlying reasons as to why they are addicted in the first place to help avoid relapse. Stopping is only one part of the process - understanding is another.
