As a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, I will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment to treat your addiction. Addiction is a complex interaction of mind, body, and environment and I often integrate multiple components into treatment, including counseling and lifestyle management. I also help individuals struggling with gambling, sex and food addiction. The goal of treatment is to assist you in identifying the root causes of your addiction, to develop the necessary skills to cope with emotional difficulties, and to facilitate personal growth. Together, we will attempt to help you through your addiction and get you back to the life you’ve been wanting to live.

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.

Denial is the most important issue to face when a person is struggling with drugs, alcohol, or compulsive behaviors such as sex, food, shopping, or gambling. The first step is to determine the best treatment options, i.e., individual counseling, a 12-step program, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, or some combination. Then I try to create a plan for lasting sobriety, which may include accountability, insight, support, identification of specific 12 step or treatment programs, the development of alternative coping strategies, such as spirituality, yoga, changes to diet, or referral to a psychiatrist for medication or a wholistic physician for a physical exam and/or dietary changes.

Addiction comes in many shapes and sizes. Often when one stops one addition, it starts up somewhere else. Once sobriety has been achieved, then the individual can begin the work on developmental issues, relationships and codependency. Addiction may never be "cured", but, the client can practice recovery for the rest of their lives without all the deleterious effects of 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.

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.

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.

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.
