Announcement icon Providing video or phone sessions for Recovery from addictions & compulsions, with possible Muse & Heartmath distance neurofeedback support!
For 25 years, I have assisted people with a variety of addictions, from the exogenous abuse of drugs and alcohol, to the ones that stem from the chemicals already inside the brain, such as sex and love addiction, abandonment patterns, sexual compulsions, gambling, internet, and workaholism. Unlike most psychotherapists, I’m a Board Certified Addiction Specialist, well versed in both abstinence and harm reduction strategies. Unlike most addiction professionals, I am also psychotherapist who also treats the anxiety, depression, and other psychological issues that often manifest after being uncovered through recovery.
I use Lazarus' multimodal approach, Wilber’s integral theory, Gorski/CBT, transpersonal/Buddhist psychology, family systems, EMDR, biofeedback and other technologies that may aid in Recovery. I’m an LPCC endorsed by the BBS to do family and couples work, a National Certified Tobacco Treatment Provider though NADAAC, and a CalGETS Gambling Treatment Provider.
As a South Bronx native who has worked with people of diverse range of ages, from teens to elders, traditional and alternative sexualities, ethnic backgrounds, socio-economics and classes, I partner with clients "from jail to Yale." -- Fee or Out-of-Network insurance only.
