Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, Career Coach

Marietta, Georgia 30064 | 770-310-9305

Addictions (substance or behavioral) are often coping mechanisms you developed early in life to help you deal with anxiety, sadness, feeling like you don't fit in, feeling you don't matter, feeling powerless, or for numbing the pain of being criticized, abandoned, neglected, abused or traumatized in some other way. Traumatic events or a life time of upsetting events are often the root cause of addiction. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist with extensive experience in helping adults heal from and put in the past the upsetting events that contribute to their addiction. EMDR Therapy is highly effective and is offered at all the leading residential treatment programs for addiction recovery.

Licensed Psychologist

I work a lot with clients who are dealing with addictions - whether it be to a substance, food, work, or relationships. While the specific content of an addiction might be a mystery to friends and family (they might have never used heroine) the experience of addiction is common to us all. We all, from time to time, have tried to use something or someone to make us feel better. At the core, that is what an addiction is. However, the problem it that it only works in the short run - in the long run when we use substances or people to distract us from our problems or pain, we end up crashing. I help people deal with the core issue so that they can live a purposeful, meaningful, joyful life.

Are you concerned about your own substance use or find yourself in the role of a concerned person? A substance use consultation might be right for you. This is different than a therapy session. The purpose of a consultation appointment might vary from person to person. Typically, one could expect to learn more about substance and behavioral/process (gambling, internet, porn, sex, etc.) addiction/dependence and ask questions and get some feedback. Have you lost enthusiasm for your Recovery? Do you feel tired of talking about your sobriety? Are you hoping that life will "get back to normal"? I can assist you in getting your recovery back on track!

1530 Dekalb Ave NE *Suite C, Atlanta, Georgia 30307 | 7703676726

Addiction: With chemical dependency or substance abuse client therapy is critical to addressing this serious issue. In addition to our therapy sessions, I only accept clients that are either currently in a support group or willing to begin one immediately such as AA, NA or other approach. Being around other piers with addiction issues is part of the recovery process. In therapy sessions we will work together to create and maintain evolving support systems in your life while we work on your therapy goals to stay and maintain recovery. Learning tools to cope with stress rather than self-medicate is a must for a sustained addiction recovery. Therapy helps to keep us ruthlessly honest.

Licensed Professional Counselor

716 Holcomb Bridge Road, Norcross, Georgia 30093 | 404-996-9163

For clients with addictions, I focus at first on dietary and supplement recommendations, because such clients are often deficient in many nutrients and because certain supplements decrease addictive cravings. When such clients begin to recover, they may resume healthy lifestyle habits which they had prior to the addiction. Therefore, it’s best to wait and see what unfolds in that area. Since most clients with addiction have a history of trauma, I often recommend EMDR for treating the psychological impact of such previous trauma(s). Se habla Español.

When pills or alcohol are used excessively, it can ruin family relationships, affect your work performance and put you at risk of danger as your inhibitions are lowered. A substance abuse counselor is introduced to determine the extent of the abuse and to create a treatment plan to help affected persons make healthier and improved life choices. The treatment also depends on whether patients are indulging and becoming intoxicated owing to depression, anxiety and other psychological conditions.

One of the great understatements of our time is that Addictions are difficult to treat. Although there are certain commonalities to most addictions e.g. functionally autonomous and obsessive-compulsive behaviors, which must be addressed, in my office there is no one-size-fits-all approach and each therapy is tailor-made for the client. Please call to make an appointment for a consultation, so that we can meet and discuss what is going on in your life and whether or not I feel that I can be of assistance to you. Also, please note that I do not work with drug, including alcohol, addictions.

Working with addiction is a large part of my practice. I have past experience running an addiction intensive outpatient group. I work with people who have addictions and family members. In therapy I give clients the knowledge and support they need to get sober and stay that way. I believe in a positive approach that stresses creating a happy full life to replace your addiction and treating additional problems, like depression, that contribute to addictions. I give clients and families help in creating a stable happy life.
