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.

"Thus God calls us, invites us, and even commands us, but God does not control our response. We alone bear responsibility for the choices we make.” ― Gerald G. May, Addiction and Grace: Love and Spirituality in the Healing of Addictions We are all addicts, some of us choose socially appropriate means while others of us choose more socially inappropriate activities to cope with life's pain. I look to the deeper driving force of addictive behavior and work to heal that so the person can behave differently, have greater self worth and see others as people.

Johns Creek, Georgia 30097 | 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.
