Addictions are about worship. Recovering addicts are the most enjoyable people to be around. Why? They worship. Maybe not in the traditional sense but they are grateful, humble, relaxed. They know their place and they are not full of themselves. Prior to recovery addicts were taught or taught themselves that certain feelings were impossibly dangerous to feel. They found a substance/activity that transported (worship) them to a place where they did not have to feel. They did not have to suffer. Addictions is a refusal to suffer and the discovery of an idol to worship. The story must be explored: Who taught you it was so dangerous to feel? Who taught you that you can not suffer?

Addictions are always a statement of personal entitlement, "I can do this and I do not care how it affects you." When acting through your addiction you give the people around you the message that you are important and they are not. I deal with people who live with addictions with firm, clear, loving confrontations. I can help you deal with your grandiosity even if you do not recognize it when you first come in. I can help you find your humility and accept responsibilty for the pain and harm you have caused in relationships. When you deal with it straight on you can have access to the deepest layers of your self-esteem and to your core value. You will move from pretense into authentic life.

People suffering from addictions often think they're not really addicted, particularly if they don't engage in the activity every day or if they are able to hide it easily. However, when the addictive substance is not available, withdrawal symptoms may begin immediately. Addictions affect every aspect of a person's life, including their personal relationships, work success, and even their ability to think clearly.Counseling is an integral part of both recovery and maintenance of sobriety.

I have been sober for 13 years and believe the struggles I have had with addiction allows me to be very effective this work. I have worked with hundreds of addicts and really enjoy this work. Overcoming addiction is much more than learning coping skills. Coping skills are definitely a part of it, but the biggest part is learning/growing so that you can enjoy life without whatever it is you are addicted to. The only way I believe we can stay sober long term, is too feel so good that we don't need something to make us feel better. It's the happiness we obtain in sobriety that will keep us sober not the remembrance of the suffering of the worst days of your addiction.

I firmly believe people do their best to create a meaningful life. I believe that people use Alcohol and drugs for a reason and it serves a purpose in their life. Maybe it helped change the feelings? Maybe it covered up or quiet thoughts? Maybe it created a feeling of confidence? Maybe it helped you feel like you belonged? Do any of those “maybes” resonate for you? If we asked how they are working, most would probably say it’s not working anymore. Addiction counseling provides you with support, resources, and we create a road map to your recovery. Learn new skills is a significant part of addiction counseling, including: Recovery Skills – Communication, Interpersonal, and Refusal Skill.

Hope is not something that everyone has, but it is something everyone deserves. Many of the adults and adolescents I work with have been to therapy in the past and found it unsuccessful. I am committed to helping individuals feel better, uncover their potential, and empower themselves to achieve meaningful goals. I work successfully with individuals to overcome difficult problems including addiction, substance abuse, trauma, posttraumatic stress (PTSD), relationship problems, and overwhelming emotions.
