I am a Licensed clinical addiction specialist. This is a license that requires years of education, experience and supervision in the field of addiction. I also am qualified to work with dual diagnosed clients, such as depression, PTSD and addiction. I refer clients out for group outpatient work while I provide individuals with specialized addiction counseling that reduces relapse by treating the trauma and anxiety while teaching skills to regulate emotions and relax into body sensations through mindfulness.

Addictions can take many forms, but they all have one thing in common; addiction destroys relationships and creates intense loneliness. Most often, our addictions begin as a way to soothe our pain or turn down the “noise” in our minds. Soon, that short-lived relief is nowhere to be found and we become desperate for the next hit, high, drink, fling, etc. If you or your partner are struggling with an addiction and don’t know where to turn, you’re not alone. Call today and let’s start finding the way back.

At the root of addiction is deep emotional pain. With that kind of pain, of course a person wants to "numb out" or forget for a little while. Others with that kind of pain distract themselves with busy-ness, taking care of everyone else (codependency), overworking, doing computer games excessively, gambling, viewing pornography, and countless other compulsive behaviors. Without treating the root cause-- deep emotional pain-- people with addictions will relapse again and again. Work with a therapist trained in EMDR trauma therapy to resolve the root cause. Nothing else works to resolve emotional trauma like EMDR therapy. Visit EMDRIA's website or give me a call to explain how it works.
