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.

Addiction can be a powerful driver of actions and thoughts that can disrupt your life and those of your loved ones. As a therapist that specializes in work with couples but also works with individuals, my goal is to help you understand the roots and triggers of your addiction so that I can give you the tools to adjust and modify your behavior. When you're ready to become the best possible version of yourself, let's talk.

Sometimes consuming drugs, food, alcohol, sex, among other things soothe anxiety or satisfy emotional hunger. However, when the roots of the anxiety and emptiness are not addressed, consumption and use have a fleeting effect, leaving you at a loss and in need of consuming or using more, and the cycle continues. As a therapist, I will help you look at the roots of your addiction: together we will do the hard work of searching underneath layers of denial and understand the wounds and pain that lie at the core of your addition. There is no magical wand that would make addictions disappears, but there is caring understanding that will help you find new ways of dealing with wounds and pain.

While my specialty is not in addiction treatment, turning toward substances or habits that create distance or provide exits from relationships is a behavior that I treat in individual, couple and family therapy. We will explore the underlying reasons, the positives and negatives of addictive behavior and our work will help you gain control and make choices that will repair connection to others.

While I am not a CASAC, I have worked with numerous men and women as they address their struggles with alcohol, drugs, sex, etc. Support is such a powerful part of coming to grips with any addiction. You need to feel that you are not alone. In addition to a therapy environment, I do believe it is important to engage in a group dedicated to the particular challenge at hand. So important to not feel that you are in this alone.

Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist

I have extensive training and experience working in drug treatment outpatient programs. Addictions are a complex concept. However, there is treatment, when you are willing to commit to the healing and journey that lies ahead of you. If you feel that life has gotten too tough to deal with, and/or that your addiction is taking away your quality life and possibly jeopardizing valuable relationships and/or job opportunities, I invite you to gently begin taking a look at some things a bit deeper. Together, we can explore the reality of the struggle, and in a supportive fashion look at the tools and steps to help get you to the next best place internally, empowering you to make better choices.

You went after work to hang out with friends. You had some drinks or you got high. Everything was fine in the beginning until you noticed that just stopping was no longer easy. I believe that people can reduce or completely stop. The choice is yours to make. There are consequences to working me; you may decide you don't need to be high or drunk to enjoy yourself.

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.

I truly enjoy working with individuals struggling with addictions. Slowing down and moving the client into a different place and space is an area that I have had positive experiences with in my practice. Individually or in couples counseling or even at an Art and Science of Love Workshop has been a particular interest and area where I have succeeded as a therapist.

Helping you find wholeness...

In 10016 - Nearby to East Rockaway.

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.

Overall, I treat addiction much like I would treat any other crisis. I would do addiction assessment to make sure I'm the right person to treat you. I'd identify triggers, what makes you more likely to repeat the addictive behavior. I can work with substance use and sex addiction. My general belief is that addiction is a way that people avoid dealing with other people and their problems. It can be a learned behavior. In order to stop doing the offensive behavior, it is important to focus on what you do want to do. This is the process of recovery, and I will do my best to facilitate this.

Twelve-step programs are extraordinarily helpful. They help addicts to understand their addictive behaviors and to develop long-term coping strategies.
