Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, Career Coach, Brain Health Coach

Addictions (substance or behavioral) are often coping mechanisms you developed early in life to help you deal with anxiety, sadness, feeling like you don't fit in, feeling you don't matter, feeling powerless, or for numbing the pain of being criticized, abandoned, neglected, abused or traumatized in some other way. Traumatic events or a life time of upsetting events are often the root cause of addiction. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist with extensive experience in helping adults heal from and put in the past the upsetting events that contribute to their addiction. EMDR Therapy is highly effective and is offered at all the leading residential treatment programs for addiction recovery.

I work a lot with clients who are dealing with addictions - whether it be to a substance, food, work, or relationships. While the specific content of an addiction might be a mystery to friends and family (they might have never used heroine) the experience of addiction is common to us all. We all, from time to time, have tried to use something or someone to make us feel better. At the core, that is what an addiction is. However, the problem it that it only works in the short run - in the long run when we use substances or people to distract us from our problems or pain, we end up crashing. I help people deal with the core issue so that they can live a purposeful, meaningful, joyful life.

"The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection." (Johann Hari). In my work with clients suffering from substance abuse and addiction, we look at the root issues underlying unhealthy, compulsive behaviors. For many, histories of dysfunctional relationships - be it neglect, trauma, or codependency - create emotional wounds. Coming from an attachment theory perspective, I work with clients to heal, recover a healthy sense of self and begin the work of actualizing a stable future. I have experience working in an addiction intensive outpatient facility and feel deep respect for those who have battled for their lives by getting help and discovering freedom.

A psychoanalytic approach to addiction creates a safe space for you to speak to your relationship to the patterns of addiction and to the complex issues surrounding addiction. With time, you are able to reorient to enjoyment, pleasure, desire, to restructure your relationship to your self and to those around you. Psychoanalytic work for addiction does not replace crisis intervention in acute situations but can be undertaken in support of stabilization or once crisis-stabilization has been achieved.

Sheri Hardin, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Avondale Estates

While I do not treat addictions specifically, I do work with the partners, family members, and other loved ones of people who suffer from an addiction. Even if you did not have issues before getting involved with someone who has an addiction, that alone will make you feel like you are crazy. I specialize in treating co-dependence and helping people get their lives back from their addicted loved one. I am familiar with the 12-step programs as well as the dynamics that people experience while in relationship with someone addicted to alcohol, sex/porn, and others.

Addiction Therapies are approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account the client's background, personality factors, religious or spiritual beliefs, and their support system. This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. This therapy is augmentive to other therapies that the patient is already receiving.

Working with addiction is a large part of my practice. I have past experience running an addiction intensive outpatient group. I work with people who have addictions and family members.

One of the great understatements of our time is that Addictions are difficult to treat. Although there are certain commonalities to most addictions e.g. functionally autonomous and obsessive-compulsive behaviors, which must be addressed, in my office there is no one-size-fits-all approach and each therapy is tailor-made for the client. Please call to make an appointment for a consultation, so that we can meet and discuss what is going on in your life and whether or not I feel that I can be of assistance to you. Also, please note that I do not work with drug, including alcohol, addictions.
