I work with people in all stages of recovery from drugs, alcohol as well as sex addiction. It is common for many people to turn to drugs and/or alcohol as a way to cope with difficult life problems. However, using drugs and alcohol is only a temporary solution to dealing with problems. In the long run, substances usually make problems worse. For some people, substance abuse may even progress into addiction, which leaves people in a relentless cycle of using despite negative consequences. If you find yourself using drugs, alcohol or sex despite the consequences, then make an appointment today.

I work very well with drug and alcohol addicted individuals. I am in favor of inpatient only to stablize the individual so that they are better able to be receptive to treatment. The more an individual is "medicated" the less the treatment is successful. People act our their hurt and addiction is one avenue that offers an immediate "numbness" to their internal pain. Understanding what they choose to not address is key to their ongoing recovery. They need to stay sober and gain better control over the unresolved "past issues" that create the need for escape. Gaining control over the hurt and helplessness of the past, as well as valuing the self creates a remarkable recovery.

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.
