Addiction Therapy

Many therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy, can benefit people suffering from addiction. Addiction therapy helps clients to overcome their addiction and find healthy ways to cope with the problems. Addiction therapy will also treat any underlying issues that may be contributing to an addiction. Addiction therapy can help people suffering from many types of addiction, including drug addiction, alcohol addiction, gambling addiction, sexual addiction, and Internet addiction.

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.

I have a CADC I, and have been providing dual diagnosis care (MH and addiction treatment) for the last 15 years. I work with clients in all stages of change-- those curious about their relationship with substances but not ready for change, those seeking change, and those already active in recovery. Many of the clients I see are also dealing with co-dependency, or navigating the particular stressors that arise when loving someone with behavior addictions or substance dependence.

My addiction therapy is a combination of Internal Family Systems, Somatic, Narrative, ACT, and mindfulness approaches that emphasize daily practices to sustain the sober way of life. The goal of addictions therapy is for a person's whole life to be transformed, and all their relationships to be healed. This takes time, diligence, and community.

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.

I work with many people looking to change to their relationship to substances. I provide a nonjudgmental space for you to clarify your goals and support you in reaching them. I can help with abstinence or moderation goals, and if you don’t know what you want yet or if you are even ready to make a change, we’re good. We’ll talk it through, step by step, and get you where you want to go.

I believe there are many approaches to healing addiction. The disease model is one of the most prevalent models for understanding addiction. There are helpful components of this model such as issues of control centered around the object of addiction and the thinking that accompanies this. Addiction can also be a response to unprocessed trauma. Developing a mindful approach to treating addiction allows for a different relationship with it. Change is possible when we learn to live in the present.
