Addiction is a brain disease that negatively impacts the person with substance use disorder and everyone close to them. Addiction feels frustrating, insane, chaotic, and hopeless. The restoration of hope is the first key to recovery. I am a Hope dealer and I push free Hope shots to the person with the disease of addiction and to their friends and family.

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.

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: With chemical dependency or substance abuse client therapy is critical to addressing this serious issue. In addition to our therapy sessions, I only accept clients that are either currently in a support group or willing to begin one immediately such as AA, NA or other approach. Being around other piers with addiction issues is part of the recovery process. In therapy sessions we will work together to create and maintain evolving support systems in your life while we work on your therapy goals to stay and maintain recovery. Learning tools to cope with stress rather than self-medicate is a must for a sustained addiction recovery. Therapy helps to keep us ruthlessly honest.

"Thus God calls us, invites us, and even commands us, but God does not control our response. We alone bear responsibility for the choices we make.” ― Gerald G. May, Addiction and Grace: Love and Spirituality in the Healing of Addictions We are all addicts, some of us choose socially appropriate means while others of us choose more socially inappropriate activities to cope with life's pain. I look to the deeper driving force of addictive behavior and work to heal that so the person can behave differently, have greater self worth and see others as people.

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.

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.
