Addictions Recovery

Addictions are driven by emotions or past experiences that haven’t been dealt with completely.

Many people have recovered from addictions through self-help groups, which focus on accountability and changing behaviors.

Therapy approaches addiction from a different perspective, delving deeper into  individual history and psychology.

Both ways are good - the choice is yours.

Therapy

If you are not interested in, or comfortable with the self-help group structure, I can work with you individually in therapy.  I will incorporate the knowledge I have of addictions recovery into a more personalized approach tailored to your needs.

Therapy and Self-Help

I have extensive experience with all stages of recovery, having worked in rehabilitation centers in the years before beginning my private practice.

If you are in a 12-step program, your work with me will enhance and accelerate what the Program offers.  I am very skillful at integrating my work with the 12-step principles and practices.

Whether you are new to recovery, or an “old-timer,” therapy can give you a confidential and safe space to explore painful feelings that may otherwise seem intolerable.  From that secure base you can make better choices in your life now.
