The road to addiction often begins with anxiety. I have been trained in EMDR for Addiction. I also run groups through the 12-Step Spiritual Journey. This is a blending of the Big Book of AA and the Bible. This text teaches us how to be in relationship with one another in healthy ways. Going through the text in a group setting allows use to learn from one another.

I view addiction as the compulsive overuse of a self-prescribed stress management tool. The addiction may be to a person, activity, or substance. But regardless of how addiction manifests itself, the goal is to understand what the client gets out of it, and find healthier, sustainable ways to manage their stress. But regardless, but in addiction counseling is to assess the compulsive behavior, so I can understand where it comes from and what keeps .

Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor

As a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor this is my Passion Area of Counseling. I work with clients to identify their “Future Vision” or what they want their life to look like 5 years down the line in their recovery. I have found over time that clients seem much more motivated to work on maintaining their recovery goals, when they have a clear vision of what they are working toward. I find it much more effective than focusing on the Consequences of Relapse Prevention. Clients are guided to develop their own customized recovery programs that they can invest in, because it is theirs. We examine addictive behavior patterns to identify potential problems areas to reduce reoccurrence.

This is a strong are of specialization for our clinic. Addiction is becoming one of the number one issues of this country. There is often a genetic potential and can be greatly influenced by early development in dysfunctional families. Addiction is often a coping mechanism to deal with mental health or other issues. Any coping mechanism that is taken to the point where it becomes a problem (out of control), can become a problem, including alcohol, substances, gambling, food, anger, and sex.

Licensed Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

In 55305 - Nearby to Lauderdale.

If you are feeling controlled by your addiction and feel like you are losing your quality of life, I provide individual therapy for various addictions such as food and alcohol. While in therapy you can begin to learn about this out of control aspect of yourself. Addictions are a sign of a need for help and intervention. Coming to understand what this part of your life serves for you and it's destructiveness is part of the healing. Often shame, grief and depression inhibit the ability to reach out for help. Breaking this cylce and reaching out for professional help can be the first step to change.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55409 - Nearby to Lauderdale.

I work with the families of those who are struggling with chemical dependence, including: spouses & partners, adult siblings, parents of teenagers and adults, adult children, as well as intergenerational family units, as well as couples who are struggling with the challenges of relationship and recovery. Addiction is called a family disease, because it affects the relationships of everyone in the family. If a person trying to recover, but their family isn’t working just as hard to change, chances are recovery won’t last. I work to provide education around addiction, relationships, and recovery, as well as teach new skills to deal with the anxiety that often accompanies them.

I have experience working with individuals who struggle with mental health and chemical health. We look at where things are at and how to address each concern. I look at therapy as building a proverbial toolbox. The tools that fill this toolbox are coping skills. Some things we try will work for you while other coping skills won't. We work together to figure out what will work best for you. You will find that psychotherapy with me addresses your primary concern, not mine! I work with you to identify goals and we work to achieve those goals.

Addictions can overtake your life and pose a signficant barrier to success in multiple areas of living Whether the addiction be to shopping, alcohol, or even food, these addictive objects can be used as tools to numb your sense of feeling. My experience indicates that people battling addictions tend to be highly sensitive by nature and thus, when overwhelmed, may seek ways to lessen this intensity of feeling through means outside of themselves. Our work together can focus on building healthier ways for you to manage and cope with strong emotions, lessen both your fear and/or avoidance of emotions, promote healing and trust building, and limit the influence of addiction on your life.
