Kicking the prescription drug abuse habit -- or any other addiction -- is a major accomplishment. But for most people with opioid addiction, detox is only the beginning of a long-term battle against craving and relapse. Counseling is an essential part of drug abuse treatment for many people. Cognitive behavioral therapy, family counseling, and other therapy approaches can help people recovering from opioid addiction stay clean. Psychotherapy can also treat the other mental health conditions that often contribute to prescription drug abuse.

I have extensive Counseling working with Drugs and Addictions. I have worked at the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Portland, Oregon. This experience hands down shaped my therapy. I am very adaptive when it comes to using several different methods for counseling. I am able to use the 12 steps from the Big Blue book, I recommend each person work their program and is able to get a sponsor, meetings and a Relapse Prevention Plan. I really like Solution Focused for Addictions and have extensive knowledge for MAT therapy. I do not provide the medication orders, but am able to assist in the therapy side. I have just recently applied for my Masters in Addiction counseling.

I use a Dialectical approach to abstinence. The use of DBT (dialectic behavior therapy). This therapeutic approach involves reading a DBT book, and homework. The client must commit to abstaining from the use of drugs, and alcohol and commit to working toward a life of total abstinence. A non-judgmental approach is taken should a relapse occur, with problem solving techniques to reduce the dangers of continued substance abuse.

Addiction brings along with it a host of internal, emotional battles. Depression, anxiety, self-loathing and shame are merely a few of the challenges we face when struggling with an addiction. Your addiction doesn't have to define you. I will help you uncover the cause(s) of your substance abuse, and work with you to develop the awareness and tools necessary to work towards sobriety. Equally as important to your recovery, if a relapse occurs, I'll be here to support you.

Addictions usually begin to take life when the substance or behavior of choice we choose to use most often becomes compulsive. It begins to have a mind of its own. It becomes unconscious to you and takes over. When we compulsively seek these substances or behaviors (eating, sexuality, gambling, and many others) to relieve pain, check out or numb out, or find oblivion, we are addicted to them. Most often these are not bad in and of themselves, but when we become addicted to them and they begin to interfere with our lives on some or all levels we are at risk for many undesireable consequences. I will help you to interrupt the pattern and the power to find release.

I have functioned as an addiction counselor for a Portland hospital as well as acted as the Senior Therapist at an addiction recovery facility. I recognize addiction as a comorbidity issue; therefore, I work with a global approach, rather than dwelling on their weakened state. I am a believer in moving forward and not dwelling on the past and it takes strength in accomplishing that. I utilize BSP (www.brainspotting.com) to help you achieve sobriety and along with lasting growth.

In my work with addiction, it is important for me to treat my client with dignity and respect. I communicate in a non-shaming way that creates a safe space for clients to explore their triggers and create new alternatives. I believe that recovery is not just about quitting a behavior, but engaging in healthy behavior. I work with the individual struggling as well as significant others.

Whether you’re struggling with alcohol, drugs, or some type of compulsive behavior (e.g., sex, relationships, eating, spending) you know how painful and difficult it can be to feel out of control. Fortunately, there is a lot that you can do to reverse this pattern. Processing trauma, shifting your belief system, and developing new skills and behaviors create a pathway to increased empowerment. I find Dr. Robert Miller’s Feeling-State Addiction Protocol, which uses EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), to be very effective for working with addictive and compulsive behaviors. Imagine how it could feel if you – not the addictive behavior – were in charge of your life!

I am confident of this: You can be free from your addiction, if you really want to be. You will have to decide what/who is most important to you and take action.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 97219 - Nearby to Damascus.

I work with clients who are seeking help because they are ready to, or have recently, quit the addictive behavior or substance they have had an addictive relationship with and are seeking to dive into deep self examination and life change. The depth work that I facilitate uses a combination of techniques catered to the individual needs and interests of the client. We work to understand in new ways the needs the addiction was seeking to meet and help the inner pain that the addiction was trying to ameliorate. We address the lifestyle, environmental, work/educational, relationship and inner-relationship changes that the individual needs to make to support abstinence/sobriety, growth & joy.

I approach addictions as a disease as well as a mental health concern. Together will identify and examine the reasons why you choose/chose to use a substance or engage in addictive behaviors. An addiction is often a symptom of a larger pain. Once we understand the triggers, we can develop coping strategies, change behaviors, and heal past traumas. Will focus on what you want in your life today and find ways to bring those joys into your life every day. Call, email, or text me today.
