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.

If you're concerned with a loved one's use/abuse/dependence on a substance, it can be a scary place. How can you help? How can you get them to stop? How can you get control of your own life again? Over the years, I've helped clients figure out their role when they love someone who uses substances. I will help you figure out your options and make a plan that makes sense for your unique situation. If you're the one using or has hurt others with your past use, you will learn how to take better care of yourself and those you love.

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.

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 Professional Clinical Counselor, Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor

Available for Online Therapy

People use drugs, food, behavior, sex, gambling, shopping, video games, or even exercise to change try to improve our mood, to feel better or perhaps to just feel numb. The common element is that we want to feel different, and want to do so right now. Problems develop when the harm to our health, our relationship, far outweighs the relief: we persist despite ill effects. The goal of counseling here is to reduce the harm brought about by our substance use or our behaviors. Charlie uses cognitive therapy, mindfulness training, and lessons from neuroscience to find healthier ways to meet our needs. Addiction has been called a learning disorder. We need to learn better coping skills.
