Addictions begin with wanting to have fun, wishing to relieve depression, urge to fit in, family history of addiction, physical pain, social settings, or emotional pain. NO ONE sets out to become addicted to drugs, smoking, shopping, eating, sex or self-harm. But once your brain chemistry and emotional pattern becomes very attached to the temporary relief or high you attain on that addiction, you become out of control. In essence, you are no longer you. You are your brain on that action or substance--frankly that sucks! Regaining your true essence, your true self by walking a program of being truthful, disciplined, answerable, and biochemical balanced begins here and now. Take steps.

I work with addicts in recovery, their families, or those who have lived with others battling addiction, who are currently clean and sober, engaged in a treatment program, and are committed to maintaining a sober lifestyle. I will help you identify and explore underlying issues that trigger the temptation to act out in unhealthy ways and caused rifts in relationships. You will gain deeper understanding of the roots of painful or uncomfortable feelings you experience, and learn to lovingly tolerate them as parts of yourself while building a toolbox for coping with those feelings or impulses.

In this generation, the growth of individuals with addictions is very significant. Addictions originally were isolated to alcohol and drugs.

I specialize in working with partners of addicts. Sometimes it feels like your partner is "cheating" on you with drugs, alcohol, pornography. Sometimes a partner is actually cheating. It feels as if you're not good enough, and it's easy to feel sad, worthless, ignored, or just angry. It's important to be seeking help during this time to learn to set boundaries, to engage with your partner in an honest way, and to have expectations that your partner is seeking treatment. I'm here for you, to listen to you, to support you as you walk down this very lonely and fearful road.

Most often, nothing becomes an issue until it starts to interfere with your own level of functioning. Depending on the level of addiction, may depend on your level of treatment. Outpatient therapy is focused on those who are more stable within their addiction, and are wanting continued accountability and personal growth as their focus. Treatment may be more collaborative at this level (psychiatrist, physician, sponsor) to ensure that progress is continuing. Types of addiction treated in my practice: drug/alcohol use, food/exercise, shopping and co-dependency issues.
