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.

When struggling with an addiction one can feel hopeless. Treatment after treatment will seem to work for a time and then grow ineffective. My style of working with addictions is to combine short-term behavioral interventions to work to keep you safe and maintain employment, relationships or other significant areas of your life that may be affected, while working to understand the deeper issues and causes of destructive behaviors, unquenchable needs and hopeless feelings.

Treatment of an addiction must take a priority when initiating couples or family counseling. The disease is often inherited from previous generations and can lead to highly dysfunctional patterns evolving such as, codependency, physical or sexual abuse, and diffuse boundaries. At our practice, we offer evidenced-based practices in addiction including psychiatric evaluation, ongoing psychotherapy and family support therapy.

Making the decision to tackle an addiction (substances, sex, gambling, food) is one of the most difficult decisions any of us ever makes. I can help you to examine how your thinking and behavioral patterns may undermine your success in breaking free from an addictive habit and assist you in establishing new, more adaptive ways to work through your addiction. Families who are struggling with an addict are not only critical to the addict's recovery, but most often are behaving in ways that support the addiction. It is important for everyone in a family system to work together to honestly reflect on their role and begin to develop new coping mechanisms to be successful.

Unlike what we commonly believe, addiction is not a chronic brain disease. Rather, it’s a symptom of compulsions — compulsions that help us escape from dealing with our underlying emotional issues. If their underlying issues are not addressed, the addicts will be back through the revolving door, with addiction resurfacing in another form. Please note: what addicts truly seek is not a drink, a substance or a gaming fix itself. The drink or the gaming fix is merely a displacement of something else they really seek. Something interpersonal. The key to therapy lies in coaching them to use proactive actions to address their underlying feelings more directly, instead of running away from them

In my general practice, I employ many of the same approaches and strategies as the famed "12-Step" program. I have worked with drug and alcohol addicts who are able to function at school and work. I do not work with serious drug or alcohol addictions as I am not so qualified. However, I work with families of functional and non-functional addicts.

When we hear about addictions, substance abuse is generally the type of addition that comes to mind. However, addictions to sex, shopping, porn, internet, video games, work, exercise, and gambling are common examples. Addiction to any of these will have an impact on the way you live your life. My specialized training has been in the treatment of gambling. When I practiced in California, I was a certified provider through the California Problem Gambling Treatment Service Program, California Office of Problem Gambling. My initial training, plus follow up training and experience with individuals with gambling addictions, have helped to increase my effectiveness.

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.
