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.

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.

Addiction can be a debilitating disease. Whether it is an addiction to alcohol, drugs, food, spending, love, sex or gambling, the effects can greatly impact your life and relationships. My main goal in working with addiction is exploring what it is that makes one satisfied. I also work to uncover potential issues underlying the addiction, such as past trauma or grief. I've worked with those who are both active addicts and those who are in recovery, but want to process their past experiences and lifestyle from when they were active in their addiction.

I have been helping individuals and families deal with the addictions for more than 30 years. Whether the addict or the co-dependent, the Developmental Model of recovery is the most advanced approach to treating the addictions, and is the model I use, which was the mainstay of my post-doctoral internship at Stanford University in the 1980's, and still is today. You will find a safe place to develop a recovery plan while maintaining your dignity. If you prefer to continue your addiction, that's your business. If you want to stop your addiction, i can help. If you're not sure, let's talk about it. I will never tell you what to do, but i will tell you what you can do for recovery.

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.

If so this is the perfect time to get some help to understand what you need and how to stop those habits.

In this generation, the growth of individuals with addictions is very significant. Addictions originally were isolated to alcohol and drugs. Today’s addictions are understood to also include, food, sex, money, gambling, video, internet, internet games, internet chatrooms, internet pornography and other types of prolonged, repeated and out of control behaviors and actions. Addictions take over a person’s ability to have of self- control of the action which leads to the fogging of any will power to stop the addictive activity even when a matter of great importance comes in conflict with the addiction. Addictions ruin people and all relationships surrounding them. Addiction counseling explores underlying factors leading to the addiction and looks to find...(view profile to read more)

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.

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.

If you are an addict or in a relationship with an addict, you know what an insidious disease this is. Gambling, alcohol, drug, eating disorder, internet, sex, or shopping addiction affects not only the addict, but the addict's family and friends; the grip of addiction is crushing. The manifestation of any addiction is cunning, baffling, and powerful. It feels impossible to live without your drug or behavior of choice and impossible to live with it. If you are the loved one of an addict, you might experience monstrous resentment at them for their behavior. You have probably said or thought, "If they loved me, they would stop." If it were about love, they'd stop. Contact me for a consultation.

Addiction can be layered with loss, grief, and isolation. It might seem impossible to give up or reduce something that has felt so central to your life. I will provide a safe and nonjudgemental space for us to explore your experience and to create change and movement. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative. By making links between your past and present experience we can develop and increase understanding and awareness and create space for something new to happen.

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.

Addiction is usually the symptom, not directly the problem. Addiction is usually present initially because someone has really hard experiences and feelings that they are trying to escape from. But once we find a substance or behavior, it can be physiologically and emotionally/psychologically addictive. The addiction is so hard to break partly because it helps relieve us of the thoughts and feeling that we don't want to or even can't deal with. Don't beat yourself up for having addictive tendencies. A large portion of our community does. I can help you find relief, understanding and compassion as you evolve to a more nourishing and growthful existence. You're not alone.
