In this generation, the growth of individuals with addictions is very significant. Addictions originally were isolated to alcohol and drugs. Today’s addictions are understood to also include, food, sex, money, gambling, video, internet, internet games, internet chatrooms, internet pornography and other types of prolonged, repeated and out of control behaviors and actions. Addictions take over a person’s ability to have of self- control of the action which leads to the fogging of any will power to stop the addictive activity even when a matter of great importance comes in conflict with the addiction.

I have been helping individuals and families deal with the addictions for more than 30 years. Whether the addict or the co-dependent, the Developmental Model of recovery is the most advanced approach to treating the addictions, and is the model I use, which was the mainstay of my post-doctoral internship at Stanford University in the 1980's, and still is today. You will find a safe place to develop a recovery plan while maintaining your dignity. If you prefer to continue your addiction, that's your business. If you want to stop your addiction, i can help. If you're not sure, let's talk about it. I will never tell you what to do, but i will tell you what you can do for recovery.

Use doesn’t automatically lead to abuse. Alcohol, prescription and drug abuse / addiction is less about the amount of substance consumed or the frequency, and more to do with the consequences of drug use. If your addiction is causing problems in your life or relationships, getting help may help. I will work with you in reducing stress, how to read cues from your environment and making changes in your social networks. You will be held accountable and challenged, in a supportive environment by utilizing CBT as well as solution focused therapy. I will assist you in relapse prevention, getting tools and skills towards prevention and getting to the root cause of your addiction.

Addiction is a coping mechanism gone wrong. It's a self-protective defense that no longer works. Usually it is avoidance of underlying, unconscious pain. Therapy will help you get to the root of issues causing addiction. A harm-reduction model is used which means we follow your own goals for reduced substance use not necessarily abstinence. I will help you figure out your own goals for change. Talking to a therapist can bring you out of the isolation and hiding that perpetuates your substance use. Simply sharing your struggles relieves pain.

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.

Is your use of alcohol or other substances a concern for you? Do you wonder if you are struggling with addiction? I help you explore your feelings associated with the use. You can learn to control it by getting clear on what you want to get out of substance use. You may consciously choose abstinence, 12-step work or continued controlled use (also called harm reduction). Discover for yourself what supports best a fulfilling, healthy life style.

I help men when alcohol or other substance use has become a barrier in their relationships and/or career. For more then 10 years I have focused on the particular way men use substances to relate to, and cope with the world around them. At some point, the partying stops feeling like a party, and the consequences set in. Often times men go back and forth trying to answer the question, "do I really have a problem here?" You can do something about this, and you do not have to deal or cope with this alone. The majority of my clients express that they are comforted and inspired in their work with me, as they gradually develop greater self-understanding, and a feeling of empowerment in their lives.

If you are an addict or in a relationship with an addict, you know what an insidious disease this is. Gambling, alcohol, drug, eating disorder, internet, sex, or shopping addiction affects not only the addict, but the addict's family and friends; the grip of addiction can be crushing. The manifestation of any addiction is cunning, baffling, powerful. It can feel impossible to live without your drug of choice and impossible to live with it. If you are the loved one of an addict, you might experience a monstrous resentment at them for their behavior. You have probably said or thought, "If they loved me, they would stop." If it were about love, they'd stop. Contact me for a consultation.

I prefer to work with people either in recovery or committed to it fully. I have to make it safe for you to be totally honest with me. We will look at the triggers that push you to using, and how you can handle them. We will look at what feelings you might be escaping with addiction, and how else you can learn to deal with them, especially in our work of resolving and healing grief and trauma from the past, going at your own pace. We will look at the triggers that tempt you to relapse so that you can recognize when you are beginning to go down that path, and we can help you handle your stress differently. We will discuss 12-step, its benefits and how to make optimal use of it.
