For some people addictions and compulsions are just a way to get rid of bad feelings. The problem is that the bad feelings always come back. Compulsive and addictive behaviors - like obsessive and compulsive disorder, gambling, sexual addictions, eating disorders, cutting, etc. - can work very much like alcohol and substance abuse. They are ways of controlling strong emotional reactions of anxiety, anger, sadness, loneliness or guilt. I use 90-minute and 3-HOUR SESSIONS to identify and fully resolve the roots of your emotional reactions so that they no longer trigger the urge to self-medicate.

I work well with many types of addictions, from substance (legal or not) to behavioral (sexual, gaming, etc.). The areas in which I am most successful with clients are in mild to moderate substance addictions and mild to severe behavioral addictions. But as always, the client must be willing to take my suggestions for rapid results, or be thoughtful about any insights I may give to them until ready to take the suggestions.

If it is not, I will help get you set up with another therapist who does the specific addiction work you require.

Like most people, therapist have their own set of addictions, and I must admit, I would probably classify myself as a "coffee addict." However, when addictions interfere with life including work, employment, and close relationships, there may be something more that needs to be addressed such as family history or patterns of addiction via therapy. I work with clients to help them establish different lifestyle choices, and how one lifestyle change can bring about a healthy "domino" effect in other aspects of their life.

Addiction is a broad based term. When I use it, I include alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, food, and the internet. These addictions are all characterized by obsessions about use, compulsive acting out, and downward progression in the individuals's life. Treatment begins with the person seeing that they have a problem, which is not always easy. The next step is developing a plan to help the person stop the addiction. Much care has to be taken to address the issues of staying stopped. These include triggers and lifestyle changes. The addict also has to develop or re-engage with support systems. I help someone with all of these steps.

Addictive disorders are serious conditions that require specialized training and expertise. Each person who may have some degree of addictive disorder must be evaluated with great care and attention to individual differences and not be treated with a "one-size-fits-all" therapy approach. It is crucial to neither overestimate nor underestimate the level of problem present when evaluating an individual person. All persons deserve that degree of respectful care and my clients can count on that in their treatment with me.
