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. In therapy I give clients the knowledge and support they need to get sober and stay that way. I believe in a positive approach that stresses creating a happy full life to replace your addiction and treating additional problems, like depression, that contribute to addictions. I give clients and families help in creating a stable happy life.

Dealing with addictions can feel very isolating. Addiction can begin as a coping mechanism that brings temporary comfort to some form of trauma but can quickly turn into an out of control problem. We may deal with shame, fear of judgement and hiding that this issue has turned into an even bigger issue. The first step in the recovery process and ability to start taking back your power is acknowledging that there is a problem and taking the next step. You can recover!

At Path to Change, we have several therapists who specialize in the treatment of porn/sexual addiction. We also have therapists who specialize in the treatment of their partners and in treatment of the marriage/relationship as a whole. This is an area which can be difficult to open up about due to shame, but we have seen radical transformation and healing when people have the courage to take this step toward freedom.

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.

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.
