I show people who are misusing substances that overcoming an addiction is quite possible. I emphasize work and practice at coping skills. I first help the individual to judge only their self-defeating behavior but never to put themselves down as a person for being addicted. This helps reduce guilt, shame, anxiety and denial. We focus on developing coping skills to handle problems and change behavior. I show the individual how to develop emotional and behavioral control even when life is difficult and stressful. I teach how to increase frustration tolerance. I lay out a specific plan for coping with temptation. I build and maintain motivation for staying with the recovery process.

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Addiction Therapist

I specialize in working with women with substance use disorders and addiction. I am personally in recovery from an addiction, studied addictions counseling in my master's program and was the lead therapist at a drug & alcohol treatment center for over two years. My approach to addiction is unique because of my personal and professional experience. I believe almost all addiction stems from trauma on some level, whether it is "typical" trauma or something difficult that happened. I believe in meeting my clients where they are and understand that abstinence may not be the best path for everyone, though it is what worked for me.

Due to widespread stigmas about addiction, individuals struggling with drug or alcohol dependence often suffer alone. Luckily, with my support, that isolation can be eliminated entirely. I have spent many years working with teens and adults in varying stages of addiction and recovery, as well as their families. I use a combination of motivational interviewing, insight oriented therapies and a warm and nonjudgmental environment to support all recovery goals.

Avoidance of certain issues and feelings can be a major motivator for an addiction. Exploring what may be driving your addiction as a way of coping can help family members to know the best way to support their loved ones . Having years of experience with treating individuals and families address the issues surrounding addiction, I have seen people successfully address this issue and learn how to live meaningful lives as they entered the process of therapy and as they began building on their recovery supports.

Substance abuse and substance dependence are similar, but not the same. As your addictions coach, we will work together to determine if you or a loved one is experiencing substance abuse, or suffering from substance dependence, the more serious of the two. Substance abuse can often precede a more dangerous substance dependence problem. But there are other factors to consider, including mental health problems such as depression or anxiety. If addressed immediately, substance abuse may not lead to substance dependence. Contact me today to discuss your concerns. Working together, we may be able to end your substance abuse problem before it gets out of hand.
