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.

Is your use of alcohol or other substances a concern for you? Do you wonder if you are struggling with addiction? I help you explore your feelings associated with the use. You can learn to control it by getting clear on what you want to get out of substance use. You may consciously choose abstinence, 12-step work or continued controlled use (also called harm reduction). Discover for yourself what supports best a fulfilling, healthy life style.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

870 Market St., Ste. 968, San Francisco, CA 94102

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.

Addiction Therapist

Laurie Chandler, MA

LMFT 86949

416 Fair Oaks St., Ste. 414A, San Francisco, CA 94110

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 Therapist

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

1630 Lombard St., San Francisco, CA 94123

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.

Addiction Therapist

Maureen Fiorelli, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

582 Market Street, Suite 312, San Francisco, CA 94104

I worked at several recovery centers in San Francisco, including Walden House (as a Supportive Housing Coordinator.) I have been working with people struggling with drug, alcohol and other addictions for many years, and often find that when one addiction disappears, another addiction may take its place. I help people get to the root of their addictive patterns and replace destructive, unhealthy behaviors with new ways of living.

Addiction Therapist

Jayn Rajandran, LMFT, CGE, DTS, MA I/O Psychology

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

45 Franklin Street, San Francisco, CA 94102

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.

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 or call 877-606-6161.

Addiction Therapist

Andrea Shelley, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Francisco, CA

Addiction affects your whole life, including relationships, career, health, and psychological well-being. Treatment success depends on developing a new way of living and addressing the reasons why you turned to an addiction in the first place. Non-judgmental and supportive treatment is essential for successful treatment. It takes courage and strength to face up to an addiction whether it is alcohol, drugs, gambling, the internet, food, or self-injury. It is important to recognize that its cause is not simply a search for pleasure and that addiction has nothing to doe with one's morality or strength of character.
