A thorough assessment is completed to understand the nature of the client's alcohol and drug abuse related issues and if dependency exists. The assessment includes attention for the presence of a co-existing diagnosis, e.g., depression, anxiety, etc. Medical (physical) safety is a priority and the need for inpatient detox and or rehabilitation are taken into consideration. Abstinence, recovery/support group attendance and individual therapy are requisite components of the larger treatment plan.

I know and understand the pain and chaos that addictions cause individuals and couples. I see addictions as poor and destructive coping mechanisms and work with individuals and couples to interrupt the behavior and work to process the pain underlying the behavior. I am very familiar with 12 step programs and CSAT work that help individuals and couples make sense out of the addiction. I also work within a complementary framework of attachment and the importance of strong close inter-dependent, not co-dependent relationships with the most important people in one's life, family. Call me for a consult about your particular needs and situation.

Addiction comes in so many different forms. Maybe you are the one with the addiction and are finally ready to reach out for help. Or maybe someone close to you has an addiction, and you are trying to find a way to cope with it. Either way, there is healing and hope for you! In counseling, we will explore causes of your addiction, identify healthier coping strategies, and work to mend the damage your addiction has done to those around you. If you are seeking help because of a loved one, we will work on healthy boundaries in your relationship, how to heal from the pain their addiction has caused you, and how to move forward in a healthy way, regardless of the choices our loved one makes.

People may be addicted to different things but root causes are often similar. Addiction is what you turn to in order to avoid, deny or mask your emotions and feelings. Obvious addictions are alcohol and drugs. Less obvious but just as harmful to relationships are sex, shopping, talking, eating, gambling, TV, and internet. We’ll learn what motivates you to choose the behavior or addiction. If your loved one has an addiction, we’ll learn actions for you to care for yourself and be healthier. We’ll learn about your feelings and what causes you to avoid them. We’ll explore healthy ways of dealing with your feelings. You’ll have a safe place to experience healthy relationship.

My clients find a refreshing approach to such a difficult issue. While addictions can and do destroy many lives, with wisdom the roots of the addiction can be exposed as a longing for something good--e.g., peace, ecstasy, or relief from suffering. Clients who are willing to explore the realities of their souls regarding what is behind their addiction can gain a whole new perspective and freedom to live above the life controlling issues they have been defeated by again and again.
