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.

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.

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.

I work with a lot of people who are in recovery, who may or may not be in an addiction support program such as 12-step programs. All addictions are attempts to regulate the nervous system. Nervous systems get dysregulated as the after-effect of unresolved trauma. Being a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I use the tools of SE to help clients learn to regulate their nervous systems so the constant unconscious drive to use in order to get relief from anxiety and depression dissipates.

I see addiction from the perspective of what is called "The Hungry Ghost". That when we aren't fed the nourishment we need as children, love, support, being seen, heard, cared for and held safe, that we then feel a huge hole in our psyche's. And when we have not experienced the natural highs of intimacy and love in relationships, we will naturally find a replacement for that feeling in an addiction. The solution is not to shame the addict, but help them see that there addiction is simply Mal-adaptive, and to help guide them to get their needs met with health intimacy. In other words to show them that once they find healthy ways to meet their needs they won't need the addiction.

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.

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 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.

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.
