Do you ever feel like you just can't quite get to where you want to be in life? Or that life can be so overwhelming that you don't know what choice is right? Do you struggle with understanding or coping with your thoughts or emotions that you end up feeling clouded from making important decisions? Our values and relationships often drive us through life, but they can sometimes be confusing or feel unattainable. Life can be a rollercoaster that leaves us feeling lost, frustrated, sad, or hopeless, but there are always solutions.

Do you have difficulties in your relationships, friendships, or work? Do you have a hard time accomplishing goals? Are you feeling depressed or anxious? Are you stuck in a pattern of all-or-nothing thinking? There are many reasons to seek out therapy, but sometimes we find reasons to put it off as well. I know it can be scary to ask for help. Asking for help is a strength, not a weakness. Who do you want to become? Therapy can lead you to feel a greater sense of self, so you can live the life you want for yourself. You don’t have to continue to suffer.

Chaos and heartbreak in relationships bring people to me. They are angry and confused as they face both a hidden crisis and the loss of support or connection. Some do not have a choice – there are lawyers or social workers, and orders and mandates to address. Many are filled with shame and self-doubt, so we begin with what I know even before we meet – “your feelings are real” and “you are not losing it – you have been overwhelmed.” You are struggling to accept what you cannot change, but we may help you find the power to seize control of what you can. Whether “you” is an individual or a relationship that seems hopelessly broken.

I believe that all people have an innate ability and desire for growth. Some of us just need that someone that they can talk to. Most of us think we are strong enough to be able to work it out on our own. Unfortunately, that is not always true. We tend to be our own worst enemy. Sometimes, a different perspective is all it takes. Many of us live life in accordance to our "belief system". If we carry a negative self view or the world, how can we expect to live life to it's fullest. We are working to heal our inner child through self-compassion, understanding, non-judgement and validation of self and others.

Alcohol Use Therapists

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
