A deeper connection to ourselves can reduce our need for immediate gratification. Dialectical Therapy compares the margins in between our thoughts and feelings. Gaining new awareness helps us work through challenges by allowing us to consider our experiences more accurately. Increasing awareness to our own experience has everything to do with how we relate to ourselves and others.

Our brain wants us to do things that feel good, regardless of the consequences or whether doing so is appropriate or functional for us. Understanding how our brain works for and also against us in these processes is key to understanding our addictive habits. We then need to learn how to make other wise choices that do work in our daily lives. Can you change your relationship with substances?

Addiction is a complex experience. I believe addiction to be a method of coping and doing what you could to help yourself with the resources you had. I also acknowledge the systemic oppression involved in addiction. I am here to provide a non-judgemental viewpoint of your experience and offer the opportunity to develop new ways to cope.

Many people are caught up in some destructive patterns that can be very difficult to change. Understanding other options to intervene on our habits that have us rather than us having them is necessary to being able to act in our own best interest. Learn with me what it takes! Attachment issues play a huge role in why we become so addicted and attempt to control what we have no real control over.
