Release the chains of addiction that bind you! With counseling, we can help you find motivation in quitting your addiction, maintain sobriety and create new ways to enjoy life again. We treat all kinds of addictions: Alcohol, opiates (Oxycontin, vicodin, heroin, etc), gambling, internet sex, shopping and food. Not all additions require absolute abstinence. In the cases of non-opiate addictions, harm reduction therapy is our go to. Whereas Alcoholics Anonymous has ONLY 2% success rate, Harm Reduction Therapy takes a different approach - it recognizes that life time absence is impossible for 98% of people. Instead of banning everything, we reduce the harm done by those substances!

Additions can often be understood as an effort to numb the pain resulting in one’s failure in their relationship with the self. Feeling unable to experience adequate levels of self-esteem can reflect difficulty in loving and caring for yourself or accepting love from others. Feeling vulnerable and exposed can reflect difficulties in feeling able to protect yourself resulting from difficulties with setting effective boundaries, while losing yourself in the face of other’s beliefs can reflect difficulties with identifying and sharing who you know yourself to be. These and other symptoms can lead you to seeking to numb yourself from the pain of feeling overwhelmed. Reconnect with yourself.

Addiction is painful. It's painful for the person going through it and it's painful for the people who are trying to help. Because addiction is so intense, it effects every single aspect of your life. Not all therapists have training in addiction and many are unsure of how to treat it. It's important that you go to a therapist who has adequate training and knows how to help. I have received numerous hours of training learning how to treat addiction both in a individual and family context. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as Addiction-Focused therapies like the 12-Step Program. Take the first step to breaking this cycle and set up an appointment today.

My current caseload is heavily focused on alcohol addiction, sex addiction, and partners of said addicts. If you or someone close to you is suffering with addiction and you need support in dealing with it individual therapy can be extremely beneficial in learning coping techniques, reducing anxiety, letting go of control if you're a partner, and helping with accountability if you're suffering from addiction.

I work with what is called process addictions including food, gambling, work, sexual, and relationship addictions. My hope is to help the person become healthy and understand the need that is leading to the addiction and constructive ways to meet those needs. Often it is about balance and learning limits and coping with those limits. The goal is to help the client move from addiction to freedom from addiction.

Although substance abuse issues are primarily recognized as addictions, I am aware of the many other forms of addiction, such as gambling, sex, and internet. My philosophy is that any form of addiciton is simply a way for the individual to cope with their stressors. I would encourage the use of positive coping techniques; I would not be judgmental in any way. I believe that seeking assistance is a show of strength.

There are many forms of addiction and I specialize in those that are considered a "Process Addiction" This is an addictions to an activity or process, such as gambling, eating, spending, sex, and work.

Addiction is a catch-all term for a complex behavioral disorder. The most obvious symptom is that addicts reach a point where they cannot control their own actions. Even when they can see the harm, they continue the compulsive behavior. The inability to stop, more than any other attribute, marks addiction. For this reason, addiction was first described as a failure of will power. We now know this is incorrect. Addiction is a real disease with psychological, genetic, and psychosocial aspects. It is not a character flaw or a failure of morality. There are actual changes that occur in the brains of addicts and treatments for addiction must address the biology behind the behavior. Some of the sympt....

Addictions often take over a persons life even though behaviors may have been manageable and less frequent at one point in time. We can use counseling sessions to identify why you are using the addictive behavior and how it is harmful in your life as keys to recovery and treatment. We can begin to find healthy alternatives for coping that result in much less stress and damage to your self and those around you. Addictions often take a tool on health, relationships, finances, and happiness and therapy can help restore that with the use of recovery-based treatment approaches.
