Substance Addiction creates a lot of drama for people. And it comes with a good amount of denial. So it's critical that I meet my clients where they are. Teens and adults often process this territory differently so it's important that I've worked with both and understand their particular needs. Soon, we identify the consequences clients have suffered as a result of their drinking/drug use. And we talk about how their belief system changes their ability to see the truth about drugs and alcohol. Using psycho-educational strategies, I help clients make choices and begin to heal their addiction.

Often people become addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling, the internet, spending and/or sex to help them feel better or cope with life. These people sometimes do not recognize that they are trying to escape or "self-medicate" from their difficulties or their addiction is a symptom of depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, or ADHD for example. The first steps to successful treatment is admitting that you have an addiction problem and that you need help. It is not uncommon for me to see people who enter into therapy at the request of a loved one. Family or couples therapy may also be necessary to break the cycle of co-dependency.

Release the chains of addiction that bind you! With counseling, we can help you find motivation in quitting your addiction, maintain sobriety and create new ways to enjoy life again. 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. Whereas Alcoholics Anonymous has ONLY 2% success rate, Harm Reduction Therapy takes a different approach - it recognizes that life time absence is impossible for 98% of people. Instead of banning everything, we reduce the harm done by those substances!

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.

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.

Addiction to any substance or behavior can have hugh consequences. Admitting that ones life is out of control is the first step to a successful recovery from any addiction. Learning new coping skills like mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and distress tolerance will equip the client with life long skills that will allow them to live a more fulfilled life. Many times addicts are not running toward something they are running from something. Uncovering what that is might be another key to a solid recovery.

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.
