Addiction is the symptom of others issues. People abuse substances for a variety of reasons such as: to supress pain, to feel more confident, and to deal with an unresolved trauma. Addiction often spirals out of control, results in feelings of guilt and despair; as well as alienates the user from her or his family and friends. However, addiction can be overcome. Relationships can be repaired. I offer professional support to both the person facing addiction and their family to learn strategies to deal with the underlying issues, set boundaries, and develop skills to address your own or your loved ones substance abuse.

Addictions or problematic compulsive habits, including addictions to alcohol, substances, food or other compulsions, can create a sense of loss of control over our lives and well-being. I provide assistance to help people overcome compulsive behavior that is playing a destructive role in their lives. By understanding addictions, the role they play, and implementing healthy approaches to dealing with emotional pain or discomfort, compulsive behavior can be managed so that you can enjoy life and create personal fulfillment. I provide training in hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique, goal setting and EMDR to facilitate mastery over addictive behavior.

Addiction is largely the result of trying to escape or avoid intense psychological pain. Treating the addiction itself with detox only is not sufficient to bring about complete healing. I use psychotherapeutic approaches to deal with the pain underlying the addiction. Together we will explore these issues, build internal strength and forgiveness, and develop alternative strategies for dealing with the pain.
