I see any addictive behavior as a coping strategy that also causes harm in some way. People try all sorts of things in attempt to make themselves feel more comfortable, less anxious, or happier. We are all doing the best we can with what we have available to us at the time, and sometimes our "best" doesn't really help. In fact, it often causes harm to ourselves and others. I help clients understand the root causes of their addictive behavior, and how to meet their needs on a deeper level in healthy ways rather than destructive ways.

I work with overspending and sexual addiction. Both of these are what are called "process addictions." With spending without much forethought and with sexual behavior regardless of consequences, lives are out of control. With both of these impulse disorders, I recommend 12 step groups as well as individual therapy with me. The groups help the person see their problems as they hear other people's stories and they also give hope and "sponsors." Our treatment helps them find out what needs they are really trying to meet and get in touch with their real feelings rather than "doping"with overspending or with sexually acting out. Note: I do not treat alcoholism or drug addiction.
