Life is difficult and recent events have made it much harder as we experience fear, isolation and uncertainty. The Covid-19 crisis does not have to redefine your life by taking a toll on your emotional well-being. Having worked as a crisis counselor at FEMA disaster centers, I helped many people work through emotional difficulties in the aftermath of a crisis. During the pandemic I offer telehealth sessions. Outside of the current crisis, you might just need a caring person to listen and help you navigate the hills and find refuge in the valleys of everyday life. I welcome the opportunity to help you obtain your goals.

Life is too short to let the everyday burdens we face create turmoil, and gain control over our emotions. Our feelings can control us or we can learn to control them. A situation, person, place, or thing only has the power to control our feelings...if we let it. It is our responsibility (and only ours) to control our feelings and behavior. Thus, we can find true contentment and serenity.

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 Toms River or for Toms River relapse counseling these Therapists provide relapse treatment in Toms River. 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 Toms River. 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 Toms River relapse counseling, relapse intervention, relapse support, referrals to relapse support groups in Toms River, detox, rehab or relapse treatment centers and Toms River 12 step programs.
