Addiction is way of escaping from life, escaping from yourself, escaping from pain. The addict is a slave to his or her addiction. Whatever the problem is you are escaping from gets worse and more complicated. Often the addict losses his/her sense of self and self esteem, relationships are damaged, and other losses occur. The addict tends to becomes self centered in their addiction and hurts people close to him/her. The addict may become less present with self & other. Recovery involves first & foremost getting sober and working to stay sober. It also means coming to terms with the pain that you are fleeing from and repairing the damage done. I work with drug, alcohol, sex and love addiction

I show people who are misusing substances that overcoming an addiction is quite possible. I emphasize work and practice at coping skills. I first help the individual to judge only their self-defeating behavior but never to put themselves down as a person for being addicted. This helps reduce guilt, shame, anxiety and denial. We focus on developing coping skills to handle problems and change behavior. I show the individual how to develop emotional and behavioral control even when life is difficult and stressful. I teach how to increase frustration tolerance. I lay out a specific plan for coping with temptation. I build and maintain motivation for staying with the recovery process.

Problems with mood altering chemicals (e.g., alcohol, heroin) or behaviors (e.g., gambling, sex) are still not well understood by scientists. Explanations for compulsive use which claim the cause is a disease or brain disorder lack supporting evidence. Counseling an individual with such problems requires taking into consideration a wide variety of contributing environmental, biological, psychological (e.g., mental health problems) factors. Treatment is typically tailored to the client and will usually involve addressing motivational factors, the client's goals, and educating the family on how they can exert a reinforcing and supportive role in the client's resolution of their problem(s).

People who struggle with an addiction are often using this behavior to cope with feelings that are difficult for them to tolerate. We explore past experiences that may be contributing to the addiction and find healthier ways of coping with their emotions. I strive to create a safe place for my clients who are struggling so that they can openly address their problems in a non-judgmental arena.

I do not handle addiction issues themselves. However, I do deal with issues surrounding the addiction. For example, if someone finds they have lost control of their alcoholism due to job loss, divorce or the death of a loved one, I can help deal with those issues that may allow their addiction to be more under control and less problematic in their day to day life.

Using Streaming, a powerful technique to handle all kinds of anxiety disorders as well as depression, I help clients target feelings of craving that can form the core of an addiction. Rather than seeing the addiction as a disorder, I look at it as an "in order": the client is using addictive behavior in order to feel or avoid feeling something. We take apart the addiction and provide the addict with genuine relief.

All forms of addiction are 'methods' used to prevent ourselves from doing very important work; that is becoming aware of why we need to do what we do, and take the necessary steps to 'choose ourselves'. Happiness is the result of becoming aware of ourselves to the extent that we like, and respect ourselves. This process instills within us a desire to want to take care of ourselves, to nurture ourselves which also means making choices that will help, not hurt us. While my style of counseling respects the pain, and trauma that a client experiences due to addiction the major thrust of my work is to assist the client create and cross the bridge from addiction to living life to its fullest.
