Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

If you are reading this, you or a loved one is suffering and needing support. Freedom from any addiction starts with an understanding that addictive behaviors - regardless of the addiction -are not the real problem but are coping behaviors that don't really bring us any longterm or successful relief. At the core of all addictions lies a deeper and more complex picture of emotional pain that can be tied to a variety of physical or psychological factors. This is where the more authentic work of helping the Self lies. You or your loved one deserves help that really works. Please call me today at 925-520-5263 to get the seasoned support and tools for a successful recovery that you so deserve.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

In 95125 - Nearby to Redwood City.

With my unique qualifications, I address the needs of those who continually struggle with chronic relapse behaviors, substance abuse disorders, process addictions, compulsive behaviors, mental health issues, codependency, and trauma related issues. My holistic addiction counseling is also useful for those who need a continuum of care beyond traditional outpatient treatment, self-help groups, and 12-step programs. In my practice, I use a therapeutic approach that is exceptionally powerful. Some of my clients have experienced remarkable results in as little as one session.

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.

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.

I like to use solution-focused therapy as well as CBT for addiction treatment in my practice. The underlying issue is what drives addicts to use, making that the real problem. The drugs and alcohol are a symptom or byproduct of the real problem that lies underneath. Thus creating the cycle of guilt and shame and driving a person to use more and more. I have had extensive training and experience working with both people in their active addictions as well as recovering addicts and alcoholics.

Addiction Counselor

Jay Reid, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

In 94104 - Nearby to Redwood City.

I take a collaborative approach to working with issues of addiction. I believe that addiction stems from attempt to maintain the belief that one is in control of their consumption in spite of lots of evidence to the contrary. I partner with clients to help them objectively evaluate this belief and consider whether they have less control over their use than they had thought. Once one can acknowledge that they do not have control over their use, the path to full recovery becomes accessible. Each person must come to this conclusion on their own and with the aid of support rather than judgment. I strive to do this in my therapy practice.

There are so many different approaches to treating substance abuse and addiction. Without shame or judgement I work with clients to help them uncover the underlying pain that often maintains addictive behaviors. I encourage clients to take back control of their lives by exploring and understanding their unique relationship with the addictive substance or behavior. Clients can learn to make different, healthier choices and will begin to feel that they really do deserve a better way of life. This increase in self worth and new found peace can guide clients as they heal from within and work to improve the relationships in their lives.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

When we are out of control with addiction, it can be frightening. Addictions can show up in different ways. We can drink too much. Perhaps, we are gambling and deeply in debt. We may eat too much and suffer from poor health. We may be married to someone abusing drugs. Counseling with someone knowledgable about how addiction is different than typical counseling can make all the difference. Working with addiction is different. If you want to be successful, choose a therapist with special training in addiction and a familiarity with the process of recovery. The decision to make a change and seek help can be the most important decision of your life. Call me at 408-249-0014 to begin your process of 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.

Addiction Counselor

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

In 94609 - Nearby to Redwood City.

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.
