Addiction are like a trap that one day you wake up and you find yourself enslaved and you have know idea of how to get free. Addictions can range from substance (drugs and alcohol) to food to gambling to gaming on-line to sexual addictions. Stopping the addictions and then getting to the to underlying causes is essential for lasting success. This is a very challenging area of mental health but is so rewarding to see folks restored to good health and good relationships.

The field of addiction treatment is ever changing and more and more studies are leaning toward the effectiveness of trauma-informed addictions treatment. If you have a sense that drugs and alcohol have served to help alleviate fear, loss, stress, and emotional pain in your life, then speaking with a trauma-informed therapist may offer you a new perspective regarding the potential for recovery. I've worked with individuals for years who had been in substance abuse treatment multiple times and reported a trauma-informed approach was the most effective treatment, most stating it was the first time they felt a sense they could truly understand the reasons behind their addiction and how to heal.

When we repeatedly experience difficult emotions which we don't know how to healthily work through we often develop compulsive/addictive cycles as a way of trying to survive. Sometimes these cycles go unnoticed for a long time. And sometimes these compulsive cycles become very destructive. Either way, the good news is that we are capable of changing (though we can't do it alone). I would be honored to help you work through the underlying struggles that are fueling your compulsive cycles, so that you can experience more freedom, peace and joy in your life and relationships.
