To live authentically and fully, we must have access to our feelings. In short, this means that we can identify, articulate, express, and finally take appropriate action on them. Addictions, while there is a vast continuum in type and intensity, block full access to our feelings.

They are our "internal compass" allowing us to discern various parts of ourselves as well as our choice in relationships. Therapy is the ideal place to process feelings and learn how to manage them without addictive substances and behavior.

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.
