One of my passions and specialties is working with family members of people struggling with addiction. Seeing a loved in the throes of addiction can be very harrowing and painful. I believe that the family member of the addict often need as much support and therapy the addict. I actively work to create a safe, non-judgmental and collaborative relationship with the family member. I work with the family member to help him/her better understand the nature of addiction, and to help him/her move through a process to find life balance, and to find ways to provide appropriate support to their loved one.

I have been helping individuals and families deal with the addictions for more than 30 years. Whether the addict or the co-dependent, the Developmental Model of recovery is the most advanced approach to treating the addictions, and is the model I use, which was the mainstay of my post-doctoral internship at Stanford University in the 1980's, and still is today. You will find a safe place to develop a recovery plan while maintaining your dignity. If you prefer to continue your addiction, that's your business. If you want to stop your addiction, i can help. If you're not sure, let's talk about it. I will never tell you what to do, but i will tell you what you can do for recovery.

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

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.

To live authentically and fully, we must have access to our feelings. In short, this means that we can identify, articulate, express, and finally take appropriate action on them. Addictions, while there is a vast continuum in type and intensity, block full access to our feelings. It is our feelings and our ability to effectively manage them (without addictions) that enable us to connect deeply with ourselves and others. They are our "internal compass" allowing us to discern various parts of ourselves as well as our choice in relationships. Therapy is the ideal place to process feelings and learn how to manage them without addictive substances and behavior.

Addiction is a coping mechanism gone wrong. It's a self-protective defense that no longer works. Usually it is avoidance of underlying, unconscious pain. Therapy will help you get to the root of issues causing addiction. A harm-reduction model is used which means we follow your own goals for reduced substance use not necessarily abstinence. I will help you figure out your own goals for change. Talking to a therapist can bring you out of the isolation and hiding that perpetuates your substance use. Simply sharing your struggles relieves pain.

Addiction can be layered with loss, grief, and isolation. It might seem impossible to give up or reduce something that has felt so central to your life. I will provide a safe and nonjudgemental space for us to explore your experience and to create change and movement. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative. By making links between your past and present experience we can develop and increase understanding and awareness and create space for something new to happen.

When we are out of control with addiction, it can be frightening. Addictions can show up in different ways. We can drink too much. Perhaps, we are gambling and deeply in debt. We may eat too much and suffer from poor health. We may be married to someone abusing drugs. Counseling with someone knowledgable about how addiction is different than typical counseling can make all the difference. Working with addiction is different. If you want to be successful, choose a therapist with special training in addiction and a familiarity with the process of recovery. The decision to make a change and seek help can be the most important decision of your life. Call me at 408-249-0014 to begin your process of recovery.

In this generation, the growth of individuals with addictions is very significant. Addictions originally were isolated to alcohol and drugs. Today’s addictions are understood to also include, food, sex, money, gambling, video, internet, internet games, internet chatrooms, internet pornography and other types of prolonged, repeated and out of control behaviors and actions. Addictions take over a person’s ability to have of self- control of the action which leads to the fogging of any will power to stop the addictive activity even when a matter of great importance comes in conflict with the addiction. Addictions ruin people and all relationships surrounding them. Addiction counseling explores underlying factors leading to the addiction and looks to find...(view profile to read more)

John Snyder, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I help men when alcohol or other substance use has become a barrier in their relationships and/or career. For more then 10 years I have focused on the particular way men use substances to relate to, and cope with the world around them. At some point, the partying stops feeling like a party, and the consequences set in. Often times men go back and forth trying to answer the question, "do I really have a problem here?" You can do something about this, and you do not have to deal or cope with this alone. The majority of my clients express that they are comforted and inspired in their work with me, as they gradually develop greater self-understanding, and a feeling of empowerment in their lives.

If you are an addict or in a relationship with an addict, you know what an insidious disease this is. Gambling, alcohol, drug, eating disorder, internet, sex, or shopping addiction affects not only the addict, but the addict's family and friends; the grip of addiction can be crushing. The manifestation of any addiction is cunning, baffling, powerful. It can feel impossible to live without your drug of choice and impossible to live with it. If you are the loved one of an addict, you might experience a monstrous resentment at them for their behavior. You have probably said or thought, "If they loved me, they would stop." If it were about love, they'd stop. Contact me for a consultation.

I prefer to work with people either in recovery or committed to it fully. I have to make it safe for you to be totally honest with me. We will look at the triggers that push you to using, and how you can handle them. We will look at what feelings you might be escaping with addiction, and how else you can learn to deal with them, especially in our work of resolving and healing grief and trauma from the past, going at your own pace. We will look at the triggers that tempt you to relapse so that you can recognize when you are beginning to go down that path, and we can help you handle your stress differently. We will discuss 12-step, its benefits and how to make optimal use of it.

Are you having difficulty coping with stress and find yourself repeatedly doing those unhealthy things that you want to quit? This does not have to be a full-blown "addiction" to substance but maybe you find yourself having problems stopping yourself. If so this is the perfect time to get some help to understand what you need and how to stop those habits.

Addiction Therapist

Josie Valderrama, Psy.D

Psychologist

With a research background in technology addiction, I see how compulsive screentime is negatively impacting so many of our lives. I use mindfulness-based techniques to bring awareness to the problem of technology-based addictions and other behavioral addictions. Increased mindful in-the-moment attention not only catches habitual patterns in the act, it also increases motivation for change. We begin to see how these behaviors act as a form of avoidance, then move toward stepping into rather than away from what we fear. We do this with compassion and a sense of nurturance for the parts of ourself we may have previously rejected or condemned, allowing for forgiveness and healing.

Addiction Therapist

Joanne Davis, M.A.

Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Lisa Bograd, MA, MFT

For many people who did not get the emotional support and security that they needed as a child, drugs, alcohol, and other compulsive behaviors can become a powerful way to experience a sense of calm, comfort, and internal cohesion. Ultimately, however, these same substances that once offered somewhat of a haven and a comfort, become a source of great stress, anguish and upheaval. I try to help my clients understand both how this behavior serves them and the damage that it has done to them and to get them to the point where they feel capable of giving it up because they have the tools available to help them to cope without it.

People with habits are people in conflict. You may love this habit, love what it brings you - the ability to change the channel on life. And yet a part of you hates what else comes along - the price that you pay. It is a struggle, a wrestling match, one that feels insurmountable. One side of you wants to act in your own best interest, and the other needs something, afraid, unable to make a break. If this is you, there is hope. The fact that you are looking for help is a step in getting where the real you wants to be. I work with individuals who have a habit that controls them, but who want change. It is a difficult road, and you do not have to walk it alone. Call for help today.

Addiction Therapist

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

Within Driving Distance of San Carlos, CA

Addiction is usually the symptom, not directly the problem. Addiction is usually present initially because someone has really hard experiences and feelings that they are trying to escape from. But once we find a substance or behavior, it can be physiologically and emotionally/psychologically addictive. The addiction is so hard to break partly because it helps relieve us of the thoughts and feeling that we don't want to or even can't deal with. Don't beat yourself up for having addictive tendencies. A large portion of our community does. I can help you find relief, understanding and compassion as you evolve to a more nourishing and growthful existence. You're not alone.

Natalie Jones, LPCC Lic#LPCC1528, PsyD.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Carlos, CA

People who suffer from addiction are usually self-medicating their symptoms of depression or anxiety; or maybe a combination of both; mood disorders, or PTSD. Addiction is not the problem, but rather a problematic solution. It can also cause a strain on the family, foster issues of codependency, as well as exacerbate health issues. I assess the individual and the family to decide the most appropriate level of care and course of action.

If you are reading this, you or a loved one is suffering and needing support. Freedom from any addiction starts with an understanding that addictive behaviors - regardless of the addiction -are not the real problem but are coping behaviors that don't really bring us any longterm or successful relief. At the core of all addictions lies a deeper and more complex picture of emotional pain that can be tied to a variety of physical or psychological factors. This is where the more authentic work of helping the Self lies. You or your loved one deserves help that really works. Please call me today at 925-520-5263 to get the seasoned support and tools for a successful recovery that you so deserve.

I work with a lot of people who are in recovery, who may or may not be in an addiction support program such as 12-step programs. All addictions are attempts to regulate the nervous system. Nervous systems get dysregulated as the after-effect of unresolved trauma. Being a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I use the tools of SE to help clients learn to regulate their nervous systems so the constant unconscious drive to use in order to get relief from anxiety and depression dissipates.

With my unique qualifications, I address the needs of those who continually struggle with chronic relapse behaviors, substance abuse disorders, process addictions, compulsive behaviors, mental health issues, codependency, and trauma related issues. My holistic addiction counseling is also useful for those who need a continuum of care beyond traditional outpatient treatment, self-help groups, and 12-step programs. In my practice, I use a therapeutic approach that is exceptionally powerful. Some of my clients have experienced remarkable results in as little as one session.

There are so many different approaches to treating substance abuse and addiction. Without shame or judgement I work with clients to help them uncover the underlying pain that often maintains addictive behaviors. I encourage clients to take back control of their lives by exploring and understanding their unique relationship with the addictive substance or behavior. Clients can learn to make different, healthier choices and will begin to feel that they really do deserve a better way of life. This increase in self worth and new found peace can guide clients as they heal from within and work to improve the relationships in their lives.
