I have an extensive history of addiction/substance abuse work. In the past I worked as a counselor at a methadone clinic, doing therapy with opiate addicts, & I currently work at Heritage Oaks Hospital, where I do assessments and group therapy with people struggling with addiction among other issues. When it comes to working with addiction I see it as my job not to tell you to stop or pressure you into change, but to help you examine your relationship with addiction and how you would like it to change. In my experience, addiction is most often the result of trauma and/or damaged attachment. When people feel unsupported and unsafe in the world, they tend to turn to unhealthy ways of coping.

Addictions can come in many forms. Alcohol, drugs, food, shopping, overworking, codependency on others and they all cause problems personally and in relationships. Seeking help is important. We usually find ourselves using other substances, things and people, when we don't have the coping skills to handle the stresses, or unresolved issues that we have. Therapy can give you the tools you need to avoid using your addictions.

Does the fact that the desire is natural permit the man to indulge his lust? The answer is no. The desire to look at the female form is insatiable and irrational. It is driven by the most primitive part of our brain where the sense to survive is stored. It is impersonal and detached. If indulged, it will weaken the man's bond with his mate and decrease his sexual desire for her. Researchers have discovered that the effects of repeated exposure to standard, non-violent pornography increases the man's callousness toward women; distorts his perceptions about sexuality; devalues the importance of monogamy; decreases satisfaction with his wife's sexual performance, affection and appearance and raises doubts about the value of marriage.

Almost everyone has an addiction. It is actually a "defense mechanism" people use to not have to feel emotional pain and disconnection. In working with you on your addiction, we will uncover the root of the emotional pain and I will help you heal that, while also helping you begin to commit to small steps towards controlling the addiction until the day comes when you no longer need your addiction.

The 12-Steps are vitally important for a person to acknowledge an addiction and, in a community of support, begin working on achieving and managing a life commitment sobriety. I find clients working the steps some of the most dynamic, courageous and compassionate people. I support them at every level in their working and living the steps and use my experience to help clients address and heal from states of unaddressed chronic emotional pain. This swirling state of emotional chaos is what makes sobriety achievement and sustainability so difficult. Addressing and resolving these areas of chronic emotional pain greatly reduces the fuel source that supplies the engine of addiction.

Recovering from addictions is a process and is unique to each person. I know that with addiction comes relapse. I use a non-judgemental compassionate approach. The goals of therapy are to achieve abstinence from self harming behaviors, to gain control over overwhelming symptoms, to become aware of your triggers, these triggers may be related to past trauma, to become aware of your feelings and learn how to express your vulnerable feelings,to create appropriate boundaries,to become aware of internalized negative messages toward yourself, to learn how to let go of destructive relationships, to learn how to ask for help, to heal the past and finally to repsect yourself.
