As a licensed addictions therapist with decades of experience in many different settings (schools, hospitals, clinics, addictions groups, and rehab programs) I have seen the damage that addictions inflict. Regardless of the type of addiction - chemical, sexual, intensity, gambling, alcohol, shopping, etc. – the underlying processes are the same. I understand both the pain and the process of addictions. I have successfully treated hundreds of people with all kinds of addictive behavior.

Have you tried stopping, but keep coming back to your drug of choice? Is your drinking causing you problems? Are you sabotaging your work because of hangovers? Do you spend a lot of money on alcohol or drugs? If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, you are struggling with addictive behaviors. I can help you learn new ways to break the cycle using behavioral psychology, habit formation, and performance improvement. For some, this may involve exploring patterns of thought and behaviors and how to replace these with more positive coping skills, while others may benefit from a more solution-oriented approach that works to identify specific goals and how to reach them.

Addiction can create stress in relationships, distancing you from the support you need. Once you have achieved sobriety, it is important to restore trust and strengthen your connection with those you love. This may be the final, and most difficult step in your sobriety. It would be my honor to work with you to have those difficult conversations, repair relationships, and help you express your feelings to those you love. You may be experiencing emotion for the first time in a long time. Expressing your emotions may have never been easy. I am uniquely trained to help.

Substance abuse and addiction are commonly used to self-medicate yourself so as to avoid unpleasant thoughts, feelings, or situations. We use substances (as well as many other behaviors) to avoid and deny these things. Recovering from abuse and addiction means acknowledging our choice to use, learning how to normalize unpleasant thoughts and feelings, deal with them in healthy ways, identify triggers and develop a relapse prevention plan. We must also learn to recognize and avoid enabling and co-dependent relationships with others. Despite all your thoughts to the contrary, there is a wait out. Recovery from addiction is possible.

In the thirteen years of my counseling career, I have worked with numerous types of addiction, ranging from substance addiction to sex addiction. However, regardless of the substance or behavior of choice, every client has shared one toxic substance in common. That toxic substance is shame. Shame comes in two forms: healthy and toxic. Healthy shame is about our behavior and unhealthy shame is about our worth and value. In treating addiction it is essential to differentiate the two. Without resolution of the toxic shame, relapse is usually imminent. I can help you clean up the toxic shame to live a clean and sober life. You are worthy of living a life without addiction.

Psychologist

During my training, I was involved in dealing with all kinds of addictions in an in-patient setting. I have also directed an intensive out-patient program for substance abuse and, since 1985, have run a recovery program for men struggling with sex addiction and or infidelity. The program has been very successful by any measure. The men who remain in the group and gain a year of sobriety have done very well and many of them continue to return annually for an update and their next years' chip. The first 90 days are rather intense, with a combination of 1:1, Group and Couples counseling. Both the offender and spouse need help. It is much better if both parties receive help.

Anyone can be predisposed to addiction. Addiction is a disease that requires treatment and support in all the realms of life including the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual domains. Addictions counseling is a specialized field. My work as a therapist at Calvary Addiction Recovery Center is invaluable to me. Recovery from addiction ultimately teaches us about life and how to live. Recovery is all about the freedom to be your authentic self. If you are an individual in active recovery from chemical dependency/sexual addiction, or are not sure about how to proceed in recovery, there is help waiting for you.
