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!!!

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

The use of EMDR Therapy for addictions has been shown to be effective. This is the primary approach I use. Often times the focus is on a person's strengths and the ability to identify triggers and replace them with something meaningful. This fosters hope for substance abuse, gambling and and sexual addictions, to name a few. EMDR therapy helps you in your process of getting your life back.

While I am not a Certified Addictions Counselor, I am willing to work with people struggling with addictions as long as they are taking seriously the need for help through a 12 step program, or outpatient and group therapy. I can work with the couple or family to cope with the dynamics of addiction and the need for a systemic approach to dealing with the disease. If the person is not engaged in any recovery program, I can assist him/her in finding the necessary resources to begin his/her recovery process. Addiction is never an individual issue, it is always a marital and family issues. Helping the family to understand addictions and their role can give them insight and understanding.

Although not an addictions counselor, I help clients who struggle with others in their lives that struggle with an addiction. I often instruct clients on way to identify unhealthy vs. healthy boundaries in relating to their addicted loved one. I teach clients about codependency and specific techniques on handling the "traps" of being close to someone with an addiction. If help clients determine if they have an addiction and give them resources on best treatment options. Family therapy helps client families better relate to one another and deal with addiction in a more healthy way.

Problems with mood altering chemicals (e.g., alcohol, heroin) or behaviors (e.g., gambling, sex) are still not well understood by scientists. Explanations for compulsive use which claim the cause is a disease or brain disorder lack supporting evidence. Counseling an individual with such problems requires taking into consideration a wide variety of contributing environmental, biological, psychological (e.g., mental health problems) factors. Treatment is typically tailored to the client and will usually involve addressing motivational factors, the client's goals, and educating the family on how they can exert a reinforcing and supportive role in the client's resolution of their problem(s).

Addictions are often the sign of underlying emotional issues that have not been addressed. Many people choose to self-medicate rather than address their emotional issues, or, while they may be willing to address the emotional issues, they do not understand their emotions, and thus resort to substance use/abuse. If you discover the factors influencing that decision, you stand a better chance of working out of your addiction.
