Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

I have many years of experience helping those struggling from substance addictions learn the path of sobriety. My approach to addiction treatment is holistic, focusing on regenerating a person's relationship to their body, mind and soul. Without this focus on the entirety of the individual, success in recovery is often limited. I truly believe that addiction robs the human spirit of the ability to accurately think, feel and experience the true world. I work with each person to lift the veil and discover the emotional and psychological pain in need of kindness, discovery and healing in order to begin the life-long journey of sobriety.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Addiction is problem that affects individuals, their families, and friends. However, many addicts deny that they have a problem and refuse to seek help. In some cases, the family finds itself unable to help. In our sessions we first assist the addict and then when possible, the family. Individual counseling is confidential and personal and involves the counselor meeting face to face with the addict to discuss recovery.

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.

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....
