"If previous attempts at stopping substance use have failed or if you want to learn to manage your use rather than abstain, call us for a free phone consultation.

Our therapeutic style is compassionate and non-judgmental but we will also be direct and challenge you to deeply examine your choices. We strive to create a safe, confidential environment where you feel comfortable exploring your choices."

"Dealing with stress is part of running your business. But abusing substances to cope was NOT a part of the plan. Every entrepreneur juggles demands. Getting funding. Managing people. And, certainly, taking care of your mental health. But deliverables and critical milestones are unrelenting - meetings, managing partnerships, and showing positive returns. Your family tries to support you, but they don’t really understand your struggles. Clearly, you don’t want to go back to using. A relapse could be fatal. You want to show up clean for business and family. You want success. How do you balance all this?"

"What if there is nothing wrong with you? What if you never had to judge you again? My specialty is inviting clients to their greatness and success; clearing the energies that don't allow for achievement, creativity, and possibilities. I work with clients from all walks of life who are demanding freedom and change. My clients tend to be the seekers, the highly creative and the dissatisfied dreamers of the world who want more out of living. If you have "been there and done that" and know that more is possible, I would be an ideal therapist for you."

"Addiction covers a broad range of overindulgences: Drugs, alcohol, sex, internet and food all might be sources of concern. While they happily affect the reward center of our brain, they can also go underground to backfire by taking control of our will. Other means of self-soothing do exist and can be tried. The analyst C.G. Jung proposed to Bill, of 12-Step fame, that the alcoholic sought ‘spiritus’ through spirits. He knew that we also need purpose beyond ego. One friend met his 'moment of clarity' seeing his 5-year-old in the backseat as he did "speedballs" in the front. Thereafter, clean & sober! But to get there, we need help."

Chronic Relapse Therapists
Relapse is a part of the recovery process. And sometimes part of recovery from drugs or alcohol relapse may involve repeated relapses or 'chronic relapse'. The repeated return to an addictive behavior may in the end result in recovery. Chronic relapse need not be an indication of failure: Rather a part of the recovery process.

If you're looking for help with relapse in San Francisco or for San Francisco relapse counseling these Therapists provide relapse treatment in San Francisco. Relapses are deceptive: they begin small and then take a hold so that behaviors as common as smoking can lead to the chronic relapse of other addictive behaviors. Professional help can be vital. These professionals include relapse Therapists, relapse psychologists and relapse counselors in San Francisco. Therapists can help addicts with alcohol relapse, drug relapses, and less understood relapses like gambling, internet relapse and sex relapse.

For substance abuse, the professionals have experience helping individuals with cocaine relapse, marijuana relapse, methamphetamines ('meths' relapse), opiate relapse and heroine relapse. A Therapist can provide San Francisco relapse counseling, relapse intervention, relapse support, referrals to relapse support groups in San Francisco, detox, rehab or relapse treatment centers and San Francisco 12 step programs.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in San Francisco are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in San Francisco you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in San Francisco and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in San Francisco or family therapy in San Francisco.
