I see addiction as a person’s attempt to regulate their nervous system to either calm down or amp up. This is in response to some unmet need that could be better met directly by becoming more connected with one’s vital energy and fullness. Naturally dealing with the root cause of the unmet need is where the work is, but it can take time to be ready. Moving away from an addiction can be like losing an old friend. Some clients can do harm reduction, cutting back and other’s need to abstain. But healing the part that hijacks a client into believing a misconception about themselves, is where the gold is. Meanwhile, helping a client re-direct to secure their needs in a healthier way, and learning grounding techniques has proven quite helpful in my practice.

Only you know if you are an addict or not. If you are interested in finding out the right answer to this and other questions regarding addictions and habits, you are in the right place.
Sometimes, habits go too far but can be altered fairly easily, especially if you are able to alter situations in your life that may feel unbearable. At other times, stopping an addiction head-on can be one of the most affirming accomplishments in your life. Every person is different.
I will work with you to find what the approach for you to rid yourself of self-destructive situations with people, places or things. Feel free to call me today and let's see if we might be a good match.

Use doesn’t automatically lead to abuse. Alcohol, prescription and drug abuse / addiction is less about the amount of substance consumed or the frequency, and more to do with the consequences of drug use. If your addiction is causing problems in your life or relationships, getting help may help. I will work with you in reducing stress, how to read cues from your environment and making changes in your social networks. You will be held accountable and challenged, in a supportive environment by utilizing CBT as well as solution focused therapy. I will assist you in relapse prevention, getting tools and skills towards prevention and getting to the root cause of your addiction.

Addictions to substances and situations (and even people) are earnest attempts to heal real pain and suffering, but ones which don't work well for long (if at all). The cultural stigma and shame people often feel when caught in compulsive patterns are unfortunate, as they foster hiding and isolation, preventing them from seeking the help they need to heal and recover, a nearly impossible endeavor when undertaken alone. I support my clients' sobriety by reducing guilt and isolation, while treating the underlying factors that drew them into addiction in the first place. My approach fits well with various group-based recovery resources such as 12-Step, LifeRing, Harm Reduction, and others.
