Addiction is an insidious disease; substances promise solace. but provide utter wreckage. This is often difficult to see, and even when a person has acceptance of the nature of his or her illness, change can be more than difficult. I provide empathic, direct therapy to clients suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. This is my personal and professional passion, I too was once in your seat. Hope is here.

Licensed Psychologist

1528 Walnut Street, Suite 1702, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19102 | 646-666-3108

I show people who are misusing substances that overcoming an addiction is quite possible. I emphasize work and practice at coping skills. I first help the individual to judge only their self-defeating behavior but never to put themselves down as a person for being addicted. This helps reduce guilt, shame, anxiety and denial. We focus on developing coping skills to handle problems and change behavior. I show the individual how to develop emotional and behavioral control even when life is difficult and stressful. I teach how to increase frustration tolerance. I lay out a specific plan for coping with temptation. I build and maintain motivation for staying with the recovery process.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Addiction Therapist

232 South 4th Street Suite 3 Middle, Philadelphia , Pennsylvania 19106 | 215-847-6749

I specialize in working with women with substance use disorders and addiction. I am personally in recovery from an addiction, studied addictions counseling in my master's program and was the lead therapist at a drug & alcohol treatment center for over two years. My approach to addiction is unique because of my personal and professional experience. I believe almost all addiction stems from trauma on some level, whether it is "typical" trauma or something difficult that happened. I believe in meeting my clients where they are and understand that abstinence may not be the best path for everyone, though it is what worked for me.

Substance abuse and substance dependence are similar, but not the same. As your addictions coach, we will work together to determine if you or a loved one is experiencing substance abuse, or suffering from substance dependence, the more serious of the two. Substance abuse can often precede a more dangerous substance dependence problem. But there are other factors to consider, including mental health problems such as depression or anxiety. If addressed immediately, substance abuse may not lead to substance dependence. Contact me today to discuss your concerns. Working together, we may be able to end your substance abuse problem before it gets out of hand.

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.

Teens today struggle with substance abuse issues at a high rate. Teens are self-medicating to not deal with issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma and self-esteem to name a few. Teens are succumbing to peer pressure from peers, experimenting with various drugs "to fit in" and then become addicted. I work with teens and their family to identify the underlying factors causing their reliance on substances.

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!!!

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).
