As a recovering person myself, I have a firsthand knowledge of the power of addiction and the joys of sobriety. I enjoy working with other people who have the courage to face their addiction, understand what is driving it and who are willing to commit to living a sober life. Living sober is a challenging task, and is best accomplished through education, exploration of triggers and alternative coping strategies, and the support of others who encourage your recovery.

The purpose of Addiction Counseling is to help the client identify for him or herself if there is an addiction present. If this is the case, a variety of cognitive behavioral techniques are utilized as well as mindfulness exercises to help with focusing and how to cope with difficult emotions in healthy ways to become abstinent. In addition, there is a focus on stengths, and what the client has done in the past to abstain from using the substance of choice. Thus, the client can try and implement at least some of these techniques again and stay away from triggers and past negative behaviors that led to relapse. There is also focus on self-esteem building and how to prevent relapse in the future once the client is abstinent.

If you are struggling with addiction, you know it is no simple feat to quit. Beyond the physical dependence that you may be fighting, there are all kinds of psychological factors that come into play. At the Lukin Center, we use cognitive behavioral therapy and emotionally focused therapy to target the many contextual factors that keep one dependent on a substance. We work to address cravings and triggers, ambivalence towards quitting, and other underlying emotional issues that may have led to drug use in the first place. You are not alone. If you want help quitting, our expert therapists can provide a supportive and accepting environment to take that first step.

An excellent way to understand addiction is that it is a problem of self-regulation. This might be a problem of self-discipline, resilience, self-soothing, attention, etc. Many folks use drugs of choice to provide functions they feel helpless to do for themselves. The therapeutic alliance becomes the provider of regulatory capacities not internalized early in life. A safe and secure attachment permits the patient to cultivate a healthy dependency on the therapist without re-living the fears of judgments and abandonments that interfered with them depending on caregivers who may or may not have been able to model and instruct what was needed.

What do you do if 12-step based treatment and AA or NA aren’t a good fit for you? You may want to explore cutting back on your drinking. You may not be ready to stop using marijuana but need support to look at how using is impacting your life. You may know you need to stop, and are abstinent, but need help to develop a long-term recovery plan with alternatives to AA or NA. A good life without drugs or alcohol is possible with or without 12-step meeting attendance.

7 West 30th Street, New York, New York 10001 | 347-453-1601

Sometimes consuming drugs, food, alcohol, sex, among other things soothe anxiety or satisfy emotional hunger. However, when the roots of the anxiety and emptiness are not addressed, consumption and use have a fleeting effect, leaving you at a loss and in need of consuming or using more, and the cycle continues. As a therapist, I will help you look at the roots of your addiction: together we will do the hard work of searching underneath layers of denial and understand the wounds and pain that lie at the core of your addition. There is no magical wand that would make addictions disappears, but there is caring understanding that will help you find new ways of dealing with wounds and pain.

I think of addiction as a behavior that is compulsively repeated despite negative consequenses wich can lead to damage to one's health, relationships, finances or legal status. In my years of experience working with substance abusers I've found that one size of treatment does not fit all. I know that I can't compell a person to do something he or she does not want to do. My primary focus is to help my client reduce any harm his or her behavior causes. This may mean stopping completely or cutting down to a level that feels comfortable. These are important decisions and they are always made in dialogue with me.

Licensed Psychologist

19 West 34th St., Penthouse, New York, New York 10001 | 347-450-3026

Overall, I treat addiction much like I would treat any other crisis. I would do addiction assessment to make sure I'm the right person to treat you. I'd identify triggers, what makes you more likely to repeat the addictive behavior. I can work with substance use and sex addiction. My general belief is that addiction is a way that people avoid dealing with other people and their problems. It can be a learned behavior. In order to stop doing the offensive behavior, it is important to focus on what you do want to do. This is the process of recovery, and I will do my best to facilitate this.

12 Step programs, while seemingly ubiquitous, are not based on cognitive behavioral therapy. Our work together uses actual psychological approaches based on evidence to help you get you back in the driver's seat and not your addiction. You are a person, not an addict. You might HAVE an addiction, and we'll work on that- but you're a totally flawed person, just like the rest of us. If extra support is needed, we recommend SMART RECOVERY groups, not any addictions work based on religion or asking for help from a "higher power".

Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.
