Being stuck in your addiction can feel like being locked in prison. You feel out of control, unable to stop using despite the many losses that you might be suffering from. No matter how much you try or how desperate you are to change, you often find yourself slipping right back into your same patterns of addiction. I can help. Together we will begin working toward healing and recovery. Whether your addiction is to drugs and alcohol or pornography and sex, I will gently walk through the stages of change with you to a place of sobriety and peace.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
