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.

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.

Need a therapist who specializes in addictions? One who knows about the mixed feelings of both wanting to continue in the addiction and also wanting to change? Sometimes the part of you who wants to stay addicted will be the most powerful, the most present, ...and that's okay. Other times you will so desparately want to climb out of the hole of addiction... and that's okay too. Thomas Schmierer, M.A., can help you observe what it is like to be in both places at the same time using a technique called a "cognitive interweave." This technique is one of the latest methods for resolving this conflict and moving you towards freedom from your addiction. Contact Thomas today!

We will address the emotional, relational, physical, cognitive behavior, and spiritual condition associated with the client's specific addiction. We will lead the client to a manageable and eventually a place where they can have complete control; without the need for a "cure" or false hopes in most traditional methods that have proven ineffective for permanent change. The client will discover a greater purpose in their challenge; to embrace the addiction in a powerful and practical perspective; and finally set them free from the battle of addiction with their lifelong victory within the addiction.

Addiction Therapist

Adrienne Levy, MS, BSN, RN, LPC, NCC

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Olivenhain, CA

My primary orientation to work with clients is on relationships, with other AND with our selves. Inner peace comes from living an authentic life. When people feel anxious about some aspect of life, places where we CAN'T know what will happen, we are vulnerable to turning to substances to feel better or not feel at all. I believe we can find ways to tolerate ambiguity and emotional discomfort to create the lives we most want.

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.

You cannot begin the work of releasing an addiction until you can acknowledge that you are addicted. Recognition of your own addictions requires inner work. It requires that you look clearly at the places where you lose power in your life, where you feel controlled by external circumstances. It requires going through your defenses. This approach applies to all addictions. In order to release your addiciion, it is necessary to enter your inadequacies, to recognize that they are real, an to bring them into the light of consciousness to heal. I will help you through this process so that you can find true happiness and fullfillment in your life.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist - LMFT #79759

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.

Addiction Therapist

David Jacobs, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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.

At the heart of addiction, I see a shameful cycle that can have a strong hold on people's lives. Addiction has distorted a person's self esteem and intimacy with others. Recovery means recapturing and defining your healthy cycle. The healthy cycle starts with finding a vision for the future and facing the real struggle addiction presents daily. Balancing vision and reality are necessary and I hope to walk alongside you during this journey.
