I have worked with clients with a substance use disorder for over a decade. Substance use disorders are not all the same, and I believe that clients experiencing difficulties with alcohol and/or substances should be treated as such. I work to treat the whole person, and can help the client create their own substance abuse recovery program. If a higher level of care is needed, I can also help to find the right treatment center for you.

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.

My approach to addiction counseling is integrative. I utilize person-centered therapy; cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and relapse prevention with my client's struggling with chemical dependency. I have found that utilizing all 3 counseling approaches in tandem have proven to be beneficial to my client's recovery; and in maintaining abstinence.

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.
