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.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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.
