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.

Addiction comes in many forms, and it can have devastating effects on the person's life and that of his/her family and other loved ones. There are many variables that factor into addiction. My approach is help the client to stop engaging in his/her addiction (in conjunction with treatment adjuncts such as Alcoholics Anonymous, etc.), and then look for underlying, root issues, and then work to resolve them.

Addictions manifest themselves in many ways through alcohol use, drug use, workaholism, gambling, codependency, pornography, internet usage and sexual acting out. The constant attempt to fill the void, numb the pain or feel alive, loved or significant leads to the excesses that promise but rarely deliver the desired outcome. Isn't time to discover what you really need, and work toward that end?

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 30033 - Nearby to Social Circle.

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.

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.
