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.

If you are struggling with addiction, you know it is no simple feat to quit. Beyond the physical dependence that you may be fighting, there are all kinds of psychological factors that come into play. At the Lukin Center, we use cognitive behavioral therapy and emotionally focused therapy to target the many contextual factors that keep one dependent on a substance. We work to address cravings and triggers, ambivalence towards quitting, and other underlying emotional issues that may have led to drug use in the first place. You are not alone. If you want help quitting, our expert therapists can provide a supportive and accepting environment to take that first step.

My work with addictions is a highly compassionate approach, exploring with the client what the stressors or conditions have been which has led to addictive behaviors. These behaviors often affect the entire family. Getting to know the various aspects, thoughts and feelings of the client which are being affected by addiction can lead to healing and a restoration of health and balance.

Alcohol Addiction Therapist & Mentor

In 11105 - Nearby to Monsey.

Stop Drinking Expert offers an alternative to embarrassing twelve step group meetings, expensive inpatient treatment centers and ineffective willpower. Our approach to treating alcohol addiction is to start with the subconscious conditioning that has gradually built up around the drug. Often addicts are only told that they have an alcohol use disorder and must never drink again. The problem with this abrupt form of 'treatment' is the client remains psychologically anchored to using alcohol as a coping mechanism and as a tool to help alleviate negative emotional states. The Stop Drinking Expert method helps the problem drinker to understand what is driving their need to drink.

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.

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.

Helping you find wholeness...

In 10468 - Nearby to Monsey.

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.

Available for Online Therapy

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.

This is an area of treatment where I have seen many miracles. Successfully moving beyond substance dependence and abuse is not a matter of will power and character. Paradoxically, being strong willed and independent can work against recovery; addictions are very 'sticky' and five decades of research and experience confirms that attempting to keep them in check without help does not work. Twelve step programs (AA, NA, CA, etc) are the ‘gold standard’ of recovery, and are tried and true methods of achieving lasting abstinence. I possess a strong 12 Step program background, but know that not everybody can walk into a meeting and feel at home. Come for a consultation and see what is possible.

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.
