I am a strong supporter of 12-step programs. My work with clients is designed to complement, not to replace 12-step work. In the program you learn to live day-to-day in sobriety, with integrity and commitment. In therapy, you delve into your personal story and explore the new goals you want to achieve in your life. Many individuals who have struggled with addiction find themselves developmentally stuck at the age the were when they began using; therapy is a good tool for maturing into a fuller, more adult life.

I wholeheartedly agree with the work of Dr. Gabor Mate who posits that all addictive tendencies arise in the parts of our brains governing some of our most basic and life-sustaining needs and functions: incentive and motivation, physical and emotional pain relief, the regulation of stress, and the capacity to feel and receive love; these brain circuits develop, or don’t develop, largely under the influence of the nurturing environment in early life, and that therefore addiction represents a failure of these crucial systems to mature in the way nature intended. The human brain continues to develop new circuitry throughout the lifespan and therapy can provide the "corrective" experience.
