If you are looking for help with an addiction, substance abuse or codependency, make certain that you work with a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC). I am a CADC and work closely with several residential and outpatient programs that treat addictions and mood disorders. The greatest testimony that a therapist can have is that her referrals are from satisfied clients and from other clinicians. I have established that reputation. Call or email to set up an appointment with me to discuss the various treatment approaches that I offer. It's time to be give yourself the opportunity to find greater satisfaction in your life and to be free from unwanted and destructive behavior patterns.

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.

Doing something despite its harmful effects on you is addiction. Craving or having a strong desire to do this behavior (when you try not to) is called withdrawal. You know if this describes your relationship to a substance (drugs, alcohol, food), or an activity (sex, gambling, internet). You can't hide behind so-called denial. You know. You fact that you searched for the word "addiction" (that's how you found me), tells you that you know. If you are searching because you have a friend or love one that you suspect has a problem, you have a choice to make. Will you hide your suspicions or will you tell them to get some help? I know addictions. Whatever your reason for reading this, I can help you decide what you want to do.

When working with people who suffer from addictions, I work with the client to help them understand what purpose the addiction serves. We identify how it has come to be and then learn to identify triggers and trigger responses. Clients are trained in managing their awareness and urges in order to take full control of their lives. We also work to create a plan for how to maintain mental wellness moving forward so that the addiction does not morph into another mental health issue.

Do the chains of addiction leave you feeling lonely and depressed? If so - there's a reason - and there's hope. Addiction is a disease in the brain, and it can happen to anyone. I work with clients to understand and change the disease of addiction. Clients will learn to identify their underlying issues, emotions, and triggers through harm reduction and motivational counseling. You'll develop new coping skills , learn the art of mindfulness and develop alternative ways of handling their thoughts, feelings and emotions, without slipping back into addiction.

I often observe what is called "the human magnet" syndrome...this is when an individual finds themselves in a pattern of being drawn to the same type of person over and over again. The magnetic pull may be to someone who is an addict, impulsive, abusive, neurotic or another destructive relational pattern. We call this pattern, or magnetic pull codependency. I have a soft spot for people who find themselves in this pattern. I also want to tell you that you can get yourself unstuck and unleashed! I would love to coach and counsel you on how to do that! Bringing your best self to the world is your most important lifework! Call me today so I can support you in that sacred journey.

I have worked wirh hundreds of substance abusers in the past, and I work with people who are abstinent and involved in a program such as AA or NA. Many times the substance abusers have an underlying psychiatric disorder and may be "self medicating" and I will make appropriate referrals for medication.All of the substance abusers that I have worked with have an underlying trauma or depression or unresolved grief.

I primarily work with couples who come to me where one partner is in some form of addictions counseling or has completed hospitalization for an addiction. Some couples come after years of recovery or because of a relapse situation which endangers their relationship together. And some clients come to see me to avoid seeing a professional addictions counselor since I'm not. My experience is that if they are truly addicted they'll see such a professional on my recommendation after having counseled with me. I have a range of referral sources in the addictions community.

Although I am not a CADC, I worked with addictions for over 20 years. I worked in an inpatient setting for addictions as well as outpatient. I believe in the 12 Step model, but do realize that for a few people this approach is not helpful. Addictions are biologically predisposed (run in families) so understanding your family history is very important. Addictions are cunning, devious and baffling and are very powerful. This is a lifelong battle that affects not only you, but your family as well.

Who are you and who do you want to be? Accepting that addiction is real is the first step, deciding to make a change is the next. Addiction is not a simple thing but after working at Gateway Foundation for several years I can help you to determine the next steps to becoming a person who has an awareness of what triggers you to use, how to deal with that trigger in other ways, how to calm yourself, deal with relationships and the world around you from a strengths-based perspective and gain the self-respect and energy you need to make a fresh start. Often guided imagery, music and art can be helpful in finding self-compassion.

One of the most amazing things is witnessing people free themselves from the depths of addiction. I use multiple treatment approaches to first help an individual stabilize the addictive process. Then I help them work to fully understand the underlying reasons as to why they are addicted in the first place to help avoid relapse. Stopping is only one part of the process - understanding is another.
