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.

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.

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.

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.

Do you worry about addiction? When you can identify your unmet needs, you begin to take control over addiction. Most people have at least one addiction, and many people have several. Addictions can be any self-soothing behavior that we have a difficult time stopping. Gaming, shopping, social media, food, attention, religion, alcohol, and porn are just some examples of common addictions. Addictions don't necessarily have to be a negative thing, unless they are causing problems in your life or in the lives of others. I can help you identify and understand the role an addiction might be playing in your life, and will work with you to find healthier alternatives.

Although I do not provide addictions counseling, I work with individuals and couples who are in recovery from addictions. I am familiar and comfortable working with people who are in recovery from both substance (alcohol, drug) as well as process (sex, gambling, food, shopping/spending) addictions. Addictions can have a devastating effect on both the addict as well as those she or he loves, and I will help you work toward healing some of the wounds created by active addiction and help you become more supported in your recovery. We know that people who recover from addictions are best supported in their recovery when they have strong, stable, and secure relationships with others.
