Clients struggling with substance abuse often feel incredible shame when considering the idea of counseling. I work respectfully and diligently in helping clients understand the commonality we all have in facing this issue as a society. Regardless of what background you may come from, substance abuse does not discriminate. In giving clients reasons to be hopeful, my starting point is to empathize with their plight, but then to quickly get moving in understanding bad patterns and creative ways to break them. Sustainable can only happen with real committment and a desire to stay focused on a new way of thinking emerges.

Like most people, therapist have their own set of addictions, and I must admit, I would probably classify myself as a "coffee addict." However, when addictions interfere with life including work, employment, and close relationships, there may be something more that needs to be addressed such as family history or patterns of addiction via therapy. I work with clients to help them establish different lifestyle choices, and how one lifestyle change can bring about a healthy "domino" effect in other aspects of their life.

For some people addictions and compulsions are just a way to get rid of bad feelings. The problem is that the bad feelings always come back. Compulsive and addictive behaviors - like obsessive and compulsive disorder, gambling, sexual addictions, eating disorders, cutting, etc. - can work very much like alcohol and substance abuse. They are ways of controlling strong emotional reactions of anxiety, anger, sadness, loneliness or guilt. I use 90-minute and 3-HOUR SESSIONS to identify and fully resolve the roots of your emotional reactions so that they no longer trigger the urge to self-medicate.
