**PLEASE E-MAIL ME FOR FASTER TURNAROUND TIME/VM in 24 hours** Although complex, we as humans have an innate tendency to think irrationally and engage in acts of self-defeat even despite our best efforts not to. Common self-defeating behaviors that you may be struggling with include: avoidance/panic, isolation, procrastination, passive or aggressive communication, substance abuse, food, sex, or gambling addiction, and self-injury to name some. These self-defeating behaviors are linked to the unhealthy negative emotions that you may also be experiencing such as: depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, shame, hurt, envy, and jealousy.

Ideally, we use an eclectic approach with therapy. Encompassing one particular approach is not beneficial - a "one size fits all" is counter therapeutic and does not allow the client to find refreshing avenues to discover abstinence/sobriety. Coupling our therapeutic approaches with Self-Help immersion, or non-traditional means, is well received. Additionally, we focus on developing a relapse prevention plan from the very first session. We call these "living, breathing documents which change throughout treatment". Please feel free to call with any questions you may have for yourself or loved one.
