Helping you find wholeness...

In 10016 - Nearby to Lyndhurst.

The present focus of my practice is not on addictions, although that is part of my training and previous emphases (including dual diagnoses) and I maintain currency as a licensed clinical addictions counselor. If you are seeking individual treatment for addictions (especially if connected to other issues), I would welcome talking about this with you to help determine if I would be the right person for you to work with. My general approach is from a systems approach combined with pastoral counseling. Assistance can also be offered for those who are seeking to deepen the spiritual dimension of their recovery. I look forward to your journey to wholeness and peace.

There are all kinds of addictions, from substance abuse to internet pornography. In each case, the bottom line is that a person is dealing with feelings of depression, anger or anxiety in a destructive way. They drink, gamble or look at pornography whenever they feel stress, but do not face the feelings that are causing the stress and work through them. I encourage addicts to make use of 12-step programs in combination with psychotherapy. When they stop denying and commit themselves to both, they quickly make progress.

An excellent way to understand addiction is that it is a problem of self-regulation. This might be a problem of self-discipline, resilience, self-soothing, attention, etc. Many folks use drugs of choice to provide functions they feel helpless to do for themselves. The therapeutic alliance becomes the provider of regulatory capacities not internalized early in life. A safe and secure attachment permits the patient to cultivate a healthy dependency on the therapist without re-living the fears of judgments and abandonments that interfered with them depending on caregivers who may or may not have been able to model and instruct what was needed.

As a recovering person myself, I have a firsthand knowledge of the power of addiction and the joys of sobriety. I enjoy working with other people who have the courage to face their addiction, understand what is driving it and who are willing to commit to living a sober life. Living sober is a challenging task, and is best accomplished through education, exploration of triggers and alternative coping strategies, and the support of others who encourage your recovery.

You will not be judged for your use, or made to feel any stronger than that which drove you to seek treatment.You have identified or been instructed to explore a behavior or behaviors that are interfering with your ability to maintain or achieve relationships and goals. Utilizing motivational interviewing lets explore the ambivalence you have toward making change, while additionally exploring the often deep feelings and experiences that inform your self image.

I think of addiction as a behavior that is compulsively repeated despite negative consequenses wich can lead to damage to one's health, relationships, finances or legal status. In my years of experience working with substance abusers I've found that one size of treatment does not fit all. I know that I can't compell a person to do something he or she does not want to do. My primary focus is to help my client reduce any harm his or her behavior causes. This may mean stopping completely or cutting down to a level that feels comfortable. These are important decisions and they are always made in dialogue with me.

When working with someone who is struggling with addiction it is of utmost importance to establish a trusting and honest relationship in which the client feels fully supported. I help the client see what led him/her to use the substance and what the substance is able to assist them in coping with emotionally. Once we establish the reason, I work with the client to teach them other healthy coping skills to use in order to no longer feel indebted to the substance.

Ericksonian hypnosis is considered to be one of the most effective forms of hypnotherapy today. Named after arguably the greatest psychotherapist in history, it is a very specific form of hypnosis and differs from other types of hypnosis in that it is rooted in the use of metaphor and storytelling, as opposed to only direct suggestion. As an Ericksonian hypnotist, I have successfully treated people in the following areas: smoking addiction, insomnia, trichotillomania (hair pulling) and weight loss. Hypnosis sessions typically last 2-3 hours long.

I have come to know addictions are initially attempts at self-medication for a troubled soul. Initially, the addictive activity relieves the pain when there didn’t seem to be another option or resource. This pain relief becomes an addiction when a person develops an inner compulsion (unnoticed at first), which begins to negatively impact other areas of life. By this point, an insidious denial creeps in to protect the addiction and the chaos, both inner and outer, now runs your life. For the addiction recovery, one shoe does not fit all. Our focus in working together is to relieve present suffering and pave the way for the most graceful movement possible toward abstinence or harm reduction.

What do you do if 12-step based treatment and AA or NA aren’t a good fit for you? You may want to explore cutting back on your drinking. You may not be ready to stop using marijuana but need support to look at how using is impacting your life. You may know you need to stop, and are abstinent, but need help to develop a long-term recovery plan with alternatives to AA or NA. A good life without drugs or alcohol is possible with or without 12-step meeting attendance.
