Problems with mood altering chemicals (e.g., alcohol, heroin) or behaviors (e.g., gambling, sex) are still not well understood by scientists. Explanations for compulsive use which claim the cause is a disease or brain disorder lack supporting evidence. Counseling an individual with such problems requires taking into consideration a wide variety of contributing environmental, biological, psychological (e.g., mental health problems) factors. Treatment is typically tailored to the client and will usually involve addressing motivational factors, the client's goals, and educating the family on how they can exert a reinforcing and supportive role in the client's resolution of their problem(s).

Letting go of an addiction is hard work – but living with addiction isn't really living, is it? Our cravings and obsessions can run our lives. But how to take charge again? I believe that addiction serves an important purpose. In some way, it allows you to survive and cope with stressors, helps you to calm down, or wake up, or feel better, at least for awhile. We will work to understand the why of your addiction - what deep longing the addictive behavior is trying to fill so desperately, but unsuccessfully. You can learn healthier ways to comfort yourself, ways that bring you closer to people you love, instead of distancing them. You will take back the power to run your own life!!!

Most counseling sessions are conducted outdoors while walking on the Pennypack, Neshaminy or Core Creek hike & bike trail. Scientists have long known a workout can temporarily boost serotonin levels and improve mood, the latest research shows that exercise can have a deeper and more lasting effect, and thus allows me another avenue in which to provide a unique experience for my clients.
