To live authentically and fully, we must have access to our feelings. In short, this means that we can identify, articulate, express, and finally take appropriate action on them. Addictions, while there is a vast continuum in type and intensity, block full access to our feelings. It is our feelings and our ability to effectively manage them (without addictions) that enable us to connect deeply with ourselves and others. They are our "internal compass" allowing us to discern various parts of ourselves as well as our choice in relationships. Therapy is the ideal place to process feelings and learn how to manage them without addictive substances and behavior.

In conjunction with couples counseling, I have had extensive experience on porn and sexual addiction recovery for husbands. For drug and alcohol addictions, I am only one part of a team for these clients - they must be participating in an outside group (such as AA, CR, etc.) and be in some type of rehab program, as well as in personal counseling.

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 entrap us in life and rob us from our dreams and potential. It takes being in a caring and lovingly but confrontive relationship to face the pain that lies behind one's addiction(s). However, it is not impossible to take the power of the addiction away and become the master of those things that drive your addicition. Your addiction(s) fills some very important need(s) in your life. Once we figure out together what need the addicition(s) is fulfilling, we can learn together healthier and better coping skills for getting those needs met.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Available for Online Therapy

As an addictions counselor, I understand the importance of providing a non-judgmental, open, safe space where you feel comfortable to share about your use and explore how you'd like to address this behavior. Whether your goal is complete abstinence or a harm reduction strategy, I will work with you to identify the most effective ways to accomplish your goal. Many times in addiction work it is more about the feeling we are trying to achieve from the addictive behavior we are engaging in. This is why it is important to understand and implement alternative healthier strategies that achieve a similar feeling or result. When we do this; change is possible.
