Do you find yourself engaging in repetitive behaviors that are harmful, but you just can’t seem to stop?
Are you suffering from an addiction that interferes with your relationships with your friends and family?
Have you lost a job or some other important part of your life, for the sake of an addiction?
Do you suffer from self-harm, gambling, or some other non substance-abusing addiction, and have been unsuccessful with finding someone who understands the patterns of repetitive addictive behavior?
Whether the addiction is related to sex, food, substances, shopping, or gambling, it can affect every aspect of your life. Your mental/emotional well-being, physical health, family, relationships, and career all suffer with you. Addictions often result from a person’s maladaptive attempts to cope with a combination of mental, emotional, physical, and relational stressors. Over time, a person develops habitual patterns that are difficult to break leading to a vicious cycle.
Addiction can leave people feeling anxious, depressed, helpless, and sometimes even hopeless. I use a combination of therapeutic approaches to help people overcome the effects of addiction, build a solid foundation for recovery, repair their relationships, and ultimately reclaim their lives.
