Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, Career Coach, Board Certified Telemental Health

Decatur, Georgia 30030 | 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.

While I do not treat addictions specifically, I do work with the partners, family members, and other loved ones of people who suffer from an addiction. Even if you did not have issues before getting involved with someone who has an addiction, that alone will make you feel like you are crazy. I specialize in treating co-dependence and helping people get their lives back from their addicted loved one. I am familiar with the 12-step programs as well as the dynamics that people experience while in relationship with someone addicted to alcohol, sex/porn, and others.

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.

Dealing with addictions can feel very isolating. Addiction can begin as a coping mechanism that brings temporary comfort to some form of trauma but can quickly turn into an out of control problem. We may deal with shame, fear of judgement and hiding that this issue has turned into an even bigger issue. The first step in the recovery process and ability to start taking back your power is acknowledging that there is a problem and taking the next step. You can recover!

This is an area which can be difficult to open up about due to shame, but we have seen radical transformation and healing when people have the courage to take this step toward freedom.
