I help my clients become aware of how they protect against their feelings. These are called addictions We can use anything as an addiction if our intention is to avoid our feelings or to use something to make us feel worthy. I can help you manage the loneliness, helplessness and heartbreak that you may be avoiding with your addictions. Once you know you can handle your feelings then you no longer have to protect against them and can let go of your addiction.

Letting go of active addiction is the first step towards living a life based in reality and truth. The cessation of substances is not the end goal, having peace in one's life is. Coming to terms with the wreckage of addiction can be a daunting prospect. However, fully embracing the problems at hand and moving forward in sobriety towards a contentment never thought possible can be exhilarating process with the right help. Give yourself these opportunities and with a true commitment the problems of active addiction can be behind you one day at a time. My addiction services are personal and progressive not institutional as most services have become.
