I have a great deal of experience with working with person dealing with alcohol and drug addiction and abuse. My approach with these clients I am firm about the need for them to attend either AA or NA and work with the Big Book and the 12 step program. I have also used hypnotherapy and EMDR habit control approach. Working with underlying issues may be appropriate and we look at spouses and family members who may be enabling the person’s addiction. I encourage spouses of persons addicted to attend Alanon and for teen aged children of the addicted person to attend Alateen. If a person is not progressing witht the above interventions, I next would recommend an Intense Out patient Pr

In my work with clients battling addictions I work to help them discover the root causes for their addictive behaviors and find new ways to resolve them. We work collaboratively with their support system to create healthy lifestyle habits and associations, resolve old recurrent pain, set new healthier boundaries in their work and personal relationships, and find new meaning for their lives. When there are setbacks, my clients learn to explore them in a non-judgmental environment designed to help them move forward toward the sober, healthy life and relationships they are seeking.

We become addicted to certain behaviors when painful feelings about ourself cannot be recognized or expressed, and therefore unprocessed. Caught in these unrecognized feelings that never get understood, behaviors of accommodation take hold and keep us trapped. Therapy is a process of recognizing these emotional patterns leading to a personal empowerment to speak what one really desires and needs. This process breaks the addictive patterns.

In the initial stages of addiction, many addicts need to get involved in rehab. programs, support groups and many other important interventions. While I do get involved at any stage in the addiction process, frequently I am not as involved in the early stages. By this I mean simply that I do not involve myself in the "wrestling the addict to the ground" to convince them they need to quit. I get involved when the addict, who wants to learn to live successfully in terms of accepting life, addressing the complicated world of emotions, relationships and the living of a healthy, but fulfilling lifestyle.

Addiction is complex and encompasses many entities. One of them is the participation in an AA program, another one the therapist. I can help on the therapeutic side, as addiction is often connect to underlying trauma. We will work through the trauma and the tools needed, while AA provides the tools required for sobriety. It's an ongoing process, providing growth and stability over time.

Most often, nothing becomes an issue until it starts to interfere with your own level of functioning. Depending on the level of addiction, may depend on your level of treatment. Outpatient therapy is focused on those who are more stable within their addiction, and are wanting continued accountability and personal growth as their focus. Treatment may be more collaborative at this level (psychiatrist, physician, sponsor) to ensure that progress is continuing. Types of addiction treated in my practice: drug/alcohol use, food/exercise, shopping and co-dependency issues.

Substance misuse is a common phenomenon in our culture. Sometimes we use substances to cope with physical, emotional and psychological pain and discomfort. We also may feel substances enhance happiness and create a party—until the party becomes a problem. Whether you are currently struggling with addiction or addiction has been part of your journey, we will work together to understand what role substance plays or has played in your life, as well as identifying your preferred relationship recovery. I practice motivational interviewing and and emphasize a recovery oriented care model, which recognizes the many facets to a person beyond their addiction.

The brain can be severely affected and altered by addictions. When the addiction to substances or processes kick in the brain starts to rewire itself to use these unhealthy coping skills. The alteration can also effect the equilibrium of chemicals which can lead to depression, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms. The process of addiction recovery is to use cognitive behavioral therapy and other conjunct treatments like TMS Therapy, Medication Management, and Meditation practices.
