Addiction Therapist

Vicki Asher Wills, PsyD, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Within Driving Distance of El Toro, CA

In my work with clients battling addictions I work to help them discover the root causes for their addictive behaviors and find new ways to resolve them. We work collaboratively with their support system to create healthy lifestyle habits and associations, resolve old recurrent pain, set new healthier boundaries in their work and personal relationships, and find new meaning for their lives. When there are setbacks, my clients learn to explore them in a non-judgmental environment designed to help them move forward toward the sober, healthy life and relationships they are seeking.

Pamela Wilson, Psy.D., MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist & Psychoanalyst

Addictions are ways people have learned to cope and regulate difficult and painful feelings. My approach is to teach you how to talk about and process the underlying emotions which fuel your addiction, and find alternative ways of coping. No matter what the addiction, it can distract you from important relationships in your life and keep you from being the person you know you can be.

Piper Glasier, MSW, LCSW, Psy.D

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Empty places within us create vacuums that long to be filled. Drugs, alcohol, sex, spending money, eating, being excessively busy are examples of the ways we attempt to fill the holes that exist within us. Going back to the origin of what created the 'hole' and repairing at that level releases us from the pull of the various forms of addictive behavior. If we don't attend to this, we may stop one addictive behavior, but we will evitably find another. These 'holes' are always healed in the context of a safe, reflective relationship. The therapeutic relationship can help repair those palces where we were left alone to process things we had no early capacity to handle.

Addiction Therapist

Marijane Ward, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of El Toro, CA

Addictions are a complicated area of work. Often the specific addiction is a symptom for much deeper discontent and shame. Along with the physical body addiction, many times the psycho-emotional issues have been present for a long time. Gaining insight and understanding to these usually very early aspects of oneself can be a useful life long tool in recovery and maintaining that recovery.

Addiction Therapist

Hui Reccow, MA, MFTI

Registered Marriage Family Therapist intern

Within Driving Distance of El Toro, CA

Addiction has many external forms (i.e. substance, alcohol, sex, gambling, shoplifting, etc.) and in looking at recovery for addiction, one needs to be able to: acknowledge the addiction, be open to a more balanced way of living, be honest with themselves, and be willing to make the appropriate choices to counter-act one's addictive behaviors. In recovery from addiction, it becomes the little things that build and grow into the big ones.

Addiction Therapist

Patrice Hooke, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Toro, CA

I've had an extensive amount of experience working with addictions. I practice some Psychodynamic techniques initially and throughout therapy to get to the underlying emotional aspects. Life can be extremely painful and challenging and many people think it's easier to just kill the pain with a pill, alcohol or some other negative addiction. I help to enable the client to substitute some of these negative behaviors with positive behaviors.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind.

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.
