There are many kinds of addictions and they all have "loss of control" as their foundation. Substance abuse is rampant in our country, and yet it always begins and ends with the individual. Happiness, wellbeing, peaceful feelings...these are all attainable without the use of substances. It's just often easier and faster to use drugs or alcohol to attain them! Treatment focuses on the uniqueness of each person and the talents and gifts they were given, but are not using in their lives. Mindfulness meditation is a learned skill along with self acceptance and freedom from bondage to a substance. The ability to separate and befriend ourself is crucial to recovery.

When we get busy, we get better! I work with Alanon-ics and Codependants as well as Adult Children of Alcoholics and Alcoholic family systems. I am a strong believer in the 12-step programs as they are a unique combination of psychology, action and spirituality. We cannot control people, places or things but we are 100% responsible for our own recovery, thoughts and actions. If you are working from a 12-step program, the therapy that I offer will be a strong addition to your work in recovery.

Addiction is a complex set of behavioral, thinking, and feeling patterns that interfere with an experience of health, happiness, and love in oneself and in relationships. Addictive behavior normally has an important function for a person. Finding and making alternative lifestyle choices can be both challenging and painful. Therapy assists in looking inwards at the situation created by addictive behavior, considering more satisfying alternatives, and exploring options that will contribute to a happier life.

David Jacobs, Ph.D.

The core issue in addiction treatment is the tacit conviction that there is more comfort and support, and as paradoxical as this may sound less danger, in the addiction than from other people. Addiction is an effort to be self sufficient. Psychotherapy is the correct treatment for addiction because psychotherapy can clarify (through dialogue) how "basic trust" was injured in the formative years growing up in the family and provide a "corrective emotional experience" in virtue of the therapist's acceptance, interest, understanding, and empathy. I provide unconditional understanding, compassion, etc. so client's can feel safe to move toward greater intimacy and away harmful addictive patterns.

Has your “retail therapy” gotten out of control? Perhaps you used to gamble for fun, but now you keep gambling even though the fun is long gone. Or maybe you can’t understand why you sometimes ruin a whole day of healthy eating with nighttime kitchen raids. These or other compulsive behaviors don’t need to control you any more. I am eager to talk to you about how I can help.

I am an Emotionally Focused therapist (EFT) & I am a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist Candiate Level 4 0f 4 (CSAT). These two modalities work hand in hand for recovery and healing. EFT is an attachment model - helping individuals to become more securely attached to those who mean most. Sexual disorders & addiction disorders are disorders of bonding - a misguided attempt to secure attachment. When we dont have healthy, accessible people we can turn to for comfort & care, we often turn away to other things to cope & manage painful feelings. This is where addiction often forms. I work with someone who has some sobriety established to help them build secure relationship with self & others.
