I have additional education in addiction counseling/treatment and my approach is warm, compassionate, and non-confrontational. If you think you have a substance use disorder or other addiction, my services may be of benefit to you. Outpatient therapy is often used in conjunction with other services such as 12-step meetings, intensive out-patient, etc. I welcome anyone who thinks they may have any form of addiction.

I do not do addition counseling. It is outside my area of expertise. But I will say that I often see someone is a couple who denies being an alcoholic despite reporting behavior that surely sounds like an addiction. The way I approach this is to ask him to "prove to me" that he or she is not addicted by not drinking for a full week (or two). If they can do this, then I conclude that we are not dealing with an addiction, but rather with something else.

Addiction therapy is a sub-specialty area in psychology, and thus many therapists do not treat addiction. At Lepage Associates we have psychologists who specialize in addiction therapy. In addition, one of our psychologists also works as a research psychologist in the field of addiction, researching which therapeutic interventions are most effective in treating substance abuse. As an active international research scientist, she has authored numerous journal articles, scholarly papers, and book chapters on the assessment and treatment of substance abuse, trauma, risky sexual behaviors, and violence, and increasing motivation for self-care and self-improvement.

I've had extensive training and experience with addiction treatment. I now specialize in eating disorders and find that many of my clients have been recovering for some time from alcohol/drugs before being ready to address and resolve their addiction to food. I have come to know that food is a drug most available early in our lives and thus, if used to manage mood and escape the pain of our childhood, takes on the same nature as the chemical addiction. The recovery, because of needed regular contact, calls for a different approach. I don't use the abstinence model because of the resistance and weight -loss focus. I use the non-diet and intuitive eating/movement approach in my program.

Couples in recovery have special needs as they forge a life of sobriety together. Learn what to expect and develop tools to avoid common pitfalls faced by couples in recovery. Whether one or both of you are in recovery, you can make sure you know what to do as you move forward in your recovery together. If you are comparing your relationship to that of couples not facing the issues of sobriety, you are missing critical perspective. Gain helpful perspective together through counseling.
