Addiction is way of escaping from life, escaping from yourself, escaping from pain. The addict is a slave to his or her addiction. Whatever the problem is you are escaping from gets worse and more complicated. Often the addict losses his/her sense of self and self esteem, relationships are damaged, and other losses occur. The addict tends to becomes self centered in their addiction and hurts people close to him/her. The addict may become less present with self & other. Recovery involves first & foremost getting sober and working to stay sober. It also means coming to terms with the pain that you are fleeing from and repairing the damage done. I work with drug, alcohol, sex and love addiction

Letting go of an addiction is hard work – but living with addiction isn't really living, is it? Our cravings and obsessions can run our lives. But how to take charge again? I believe that addiction serves an important purpose. In some way, it allows you to survive and cope with stressors, helps you to calm down, or wake up, or feel better, at least for awhile. We will work to understand the why of your addiction - what deep longing the addictive behavior is trying to fill so desperately, but unsuccessfully. You can learn healthier ways to comfort yourself, ways that bring you closer to people you love, instead of distancing them. You will take back the power to run your own life!!!
