Addiction Counselor

Psychotherapist/Professional Counselor

My approach to treating addiction is contingent on your abstinence. Once you are in a program so you are not using, my approach is to help you examine your need for the addiction and what purpose it serves in your life. This self-knowledge is helpful in understanding why you may feel controlled by your addiction, what it is defending against, and finding the willpower to remain abstinent.

I use a cognitive behavioral therapy approach to working with people with addiction, which is a research and evidence based approach. I provide tools to help people identify and avoid their triggers and cope with their urges and cravings. I also help them feel better by teaching effective relaxation skills and coping skills. People who work with me also learn how to set better boundaries, learn problem solving skills, and live a life free from addiction. In the event that a higher level of care is needed, I provide direction and resources to help people through the process of living addiction free.

While there is definitely a biochemical component to addiction, there is more to it than that. If it was simply biochemical, all that would be needed would be to detox from the substance. Once the physical craving is gone you would know never to try it again. But clearly this is not the case. Addiction is also about self-medicating away difficult emotions. To truly conquer an addiction you must learn to manage your emotions effectively.
