Many people attempt to avoid painful issues by taking pills, powders, or liquids and then waiting for the desired effect - an alteration of their consciousness. There are more positive ways to alter consciousness without turning to alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, sex, television, work, or any other activity that when used to excess, has a destructive impact on your life. Learning to change your mood by healthier more active methods involves some effort and motivation on your part but recovery from addiction is possible. We have experienced substance abuse professionals to help you make the changes you want to make

New Directions Counseling, 150 S. Washington St Suite 303, Falls Church, VA, Falls Church, Virginia 22046
For clients facing Process Addictions, I approach clients from person-centered, existential, and cognitive behavioral therapy perspectives. I view process addictions as having their origins in multiple areas to include behavioral addiction, emotional triggers, low self-concept, shame, and low stress tolerance. I will work with you on the physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual fronts and educate you on the cycle of addiction and shame. In addition to working through the underlying shame, unfinished business, unfinished grief, low self-concept, and low stress tolerance, I would support you to employ CBT tools and developing more life purpose and resilience to prevent relapse.

I work with individuals on an outpatient basis who are looking to get to the root of what fuels compulsive behaviors and addictions stemming from anxiety, unprocessed grief or loss, and residual trauma. Clients who are actively engaging in aggressive or dangerous behaviors toward themselves or others are encouraged to seek comprehensive care at a clinic or facility that can provide a full range of services, including psychiatric care.

"Addiction" is a word bandied about a great deal in common culture. It is so overused that it has lost any useful meaning. There are many forms of compulsive behavior. Some of them, like drug and alcohol use, involve physical dependency. Many are forms of distraction or avoidance from other feelings or thoughts that are overwhelming or upsetting. That is the basis of my approach and it works. Learning how to deal with feelings of want or need and making decisions about whether or not those feelings are to control specific behaviors is that basis of my work in this field.
