Are you having difficulty coping with stress and find yourself repeatedly doing those unhealthy things that you want to quit? This does not have to be a full-blown "addiction" to substance but maybe you find yourself having problems stopping yourself. If so this is the perfect time to get some help to understand what you need and how to stop those habits.

Most of the clients I see in my job as Mental Health Clinician for Solano County have a diagnosis that includes substance abuse. I believe that substance abuse can be overcome through various behavioral and psychotherapeutic approaches and I readily apply these techiques to my treatment plan. I also rely on the assistance of outside groups such as Alcoholics Anonoymous and NA. Sexual addiction is an area of importance in our society and I can work with people who are preoccupied with self-destructive sexual behavior, too.

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.

EMDR can be a method for the rapid resolution of addiction. If you choose to participate in a 12-step program, it can support your participation. In many cases, addictions are resolved to the point where the support of a 12-step program is no longer necessary, because the underlying urge has been resolved. This is useful for substance addictions such as alcohol, nicotine or street drugs as well as behavioral addictions such as gambling, shopping or even shoplifting..

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.

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.

For many people who did not get the emotional support and security that they needed as a child, drugs, alcohol, and other compulsive behaviors can become a powerful way to experience a sense of calm, comfort, and internal cohesion. Ultimately, however, these same substances that once offered somewhat of a haven and a comfort, become a source of great stress, anguish and upheaval. I try to help my clients understand both how this behavior serves them and the damage that it has done to them and to get them to the point where they feel capable of giving it up because they have the tools available to help them to cope without it.

Are you sitting with feelings of shame, guilt, regret, angst, or fear in regards to your battle with addiction? Have you been through one program after another, but keep resorting to the same old patterns that ultimately lead to relapse? Are you struggling to understand what has you turning to drugs time and time again despite your various efforts to abstain? I specialize in working with people through profound shame and helping them understand the various ways it manifests in their lives. I work with those battling addiction in trying to understand their patterns and thirst for something more in life by getting them to focus more deeply on the complex issues they face in a safe space.

Addictions are highly entrenched behavioral patterns that seem to take on a life of their own. I view addictive patterns as ways that parts of ourselves are trying to fill unmet needs, search for comfort, relieve stress/tension and sometimes to express a powerful urge to be independent or defiant. In addition to encouraging group supports such as AA/NA, I use body awareness to help us identify triggers and to allow them to act out/ express themselves in sessions. This lessens the likelihood that they will be acted in the world- and fills in the unmet needs. I also teach ways of grounding in our body, and holding a strong stance, so that we can contain the urges when they arise.

It is often the most sensitive and intelligent people in our society who struggle with addiction. How else can we tolerate the injustices, the coldness, the uncertainty, and the losses that come with life and world we live in? People hide away in their busy schedules, drown their thoughts in television, numb their emotions with food, sex, shopping and big purchases, or escape altogether through the use of drugs and alcohol. Maybe we never saw people dealing with and “working through” their feelings of anger, frustration, overwhelm, grief, depression, anxiety, disappointment, and shame in a healthy way. Maybe we just haven’t yet found our own way. No matter how subtle, the cost of substan....

Addiction can be a powerful force that can quickly take over your life and can lead to many negative consequences. Trying to understand your addiction(s) and the underlying reasons that led you to this way of coping can be the beginning of more control and management of these behaviors. It can be difficult to look at behaviors that have caused harm, hurt and shame. Together we can work through this process and I will support you throughout.

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, it can feel as though you are very much alone. Alcohol and drug abuse can begin to take over most areas of a person’s life, affecting work and home in major ways. The addicted person’s life can begin to feel out of control and family members may feel at a loss about how to help their loved one. Fortunately, effective treatment is available. There are many different levels of treatment including outpatient psychotherapy, intensive outpatient programs and inpatient programs depending on the needs and resources available to the person struggling with substance abuse and their family. I am experienced in helping guide this complicated process.

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.
