I can refer you to LADAC, psychologists, social workers and others who treat substance abuse (drug and alcohol abuse) if that is what you are seeking. I do not provide these services per se, though of course these issues emerge in the course of individual therapy and marriage counseling. However, other behavioral "addictions" are addressed in my practice. So-called "internet addiction," "sexual addiction," "workaholism," "Facebook addiction," and so on. I put these in quotes because, intellectually, I debate the meaningfulness and utility of calling things "addictions." However, these are sources of problems in people's lives regardless of the labels, and can be challenging to change...

Drug and alcohol addiction are battles that can be won with perseverance and commitment towards a better future. I help individuals sustain sobriety through the hard times and find new coping skills that ensure successful recovery when it counts the most. You can get through this!! but not alone. Allow me to accompany you on your journey to ensure successful recovery and focus on relapse prevention. I am suboxone and methodone friendly, and can also support family members and parents of loved ones who are struggling through sobriety.

I have worked in and specialized in the field of substance abuse and addiction for nearly three decades. For several years I ran groups for alcohol/opioid dependent adults newly sober. I am familiar with both 12-Step Programs and Smart Recovery and I remain a firm believer that it takes a village to get and remain clean and sober. In my private practice today, I work with quite a number of people in recovery. I ONLY work with people in recovery in aiding and assisting them in living fuller, richer spiritual lives. Helping people to rediscover or discover their spirituality is a joy (albeit it sometimes challenging) and delight as a therapist to bear witness to!

Addictions can involve substances, like alcohol or drugs, or behaviors, such as gambling or sex//pornography. Addictions destroy the quality of life of the addict's friends, family and work colleagues, and lead to the emotional, spiritual, even physical, death of the addict him/herself. They are very widespread and very serious. The good news: once addictive behavior ends, improvement starts almost immediately. An experienced addictions counselor will assess whether an addict needs detox, an intensive rehab /recovery group, a 12-step group, or individual counseling. Counseling can also help the families of addicts recover from the damage of living with addiction.

I work with sexual addiction issues in context of complete history and what motivated client to call. The collateral emotional damage to self and family, and sometimes the legal risks are what bring clients to seek help. It is not a short term therapy. The focus is on the one who initiates the call for help, be it the family member or the person with the problem behavior. I encourage some couple and family involvement, the appropriateness of involvement being decided upon in collaborative manner between me and the client.
I assess and refer chemical addiction clients for specific addiction treatment before other issues can be addressed.

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 email@example.com or call 877-606-6161.

Through an active and dynamic practice in a nonjudgmental environment, I can help teach you skills to supplement your regular addictions counseling and/or group therapy. The benefits of mindful meditation and yoga are being widely praised in the psychology community as ways to break through habits. No experience with yoga or meditation is necessary as I customize these skills to fit your unique interest and abilities. For years I have helped people with addictions, chronic pain, trauma and anxiety to reap the benefits of these invaluable approaches to wellness. I can help you to tap your creativity to discover and strengthen new pathways to coping skills and lasting change.

Underlying most 'addictions' is emotional pain or a deep sense of shame. Encountering a distressful event in life can bring one across the threshold of coping. Then, seeking a 'fix' or to anesthetize the pain, some people engage in impulsive/compulsive behaviors. These include: alcohol, drugs, gambling, self-harm, sex, food, lying, acquiring things, exercise, work, internet, or risk activities. This usually leads to two results: self-punishment for the shameful feelings, or tension reduction and temporary relief. We use favored psychological defenses. However, over time, there is some reflection. We feel badly, perhaps have remorse, and feel guilt. The cycle repeats. Instead, seek therapy...
