Addiction and Recovery

I work closely with adults and adolescents facing  a variety of addictions such as, drug and alcohol addiction, addiction to self- harm, food addiction, and other addictive behaviors.

Addiction recovery patients commonly suffer from issues such as depression or mood disorders. I will carefully analyze any contributing conditions and help you manage those in accord with your addiction.

Each person and each addiction is unique. Depending on the scope of your addiction, therapy may consist of talk therapy alone or may evolve to include a combination of counseling and the use of additional, external resources for addiction.

Substance abuse treatment and addiction therapy can include:

  • Addiction counseling and talk therapy
  • Drug and alcohol detoxification support
  • Behavioral modification therapy
  • Relapse prevention
  • Referral to a psychiatrist or treatment center

I will provide non-judgmental, collaborative care that will help you uncover ways to enjoy life free of your addiction triggers and tools to successfully deal with those triggers that are unavoidable. The central goals of care are wellness, happiness, and a productive, addiction-free life.

Addiction is a chronic, but treatable illness that requires a continually supportive and constructive environment. Individual therapy will give you insight into the cause of your addiction and the tools to effectively manage it.
