You cannot begin the work of releasing an addiction until you can acknowledge that you are addicted. Recognition of your own addictions requires inner work. It requires that you look clearly at the places where you lose power in your life, where you feel controlled by external circumstances. It requires going through your defenses. This approach applies to all addictions. In order to release your addiciion, it is necessary to enter your inadequacies, to recognize that they are real, an to bring them into the light of consciousness to heal. I will help you through this process so that you can find true happiness and fullfillment in your life.

My primary orientation to work with clients is on relationships, with other AND with our selves. Inner peace comes from living an authentic life. When people feel anxious about some aspect of life, places where we CAN'T know what will happen, we are vulnerable to turning to substances to feel better or not feel at all. I believe we can find ways to tolerate ambiguity and emotional discomfort to create the lives we most want.

Addiction is a complex set of behavioral, thinking, and feeling patterns that interfere with an experience of health, happiness, and love in oneself and in relationships. Addictive behavior normally has an important function for a person. Finding and making alternative lifestyle choices can be both challenging and painful. Therapy assists in looking inwards at the situation created by addictive behavior, considering more satisfying alternatives, and exploring options that will contribute to a happier life.
