Announcement icon To all my clients, I have been out with bronchial pneumonia and will be back in the office November 2nd for virtual sessions or in office.
I have a specialization working with couples, families and individuals as well as in substance abuse/chemical dependency and addiction treatment (porn, sex & gambling). In many cases the depressed and anxious client is self medicating in some way to alter underlying feelings of depression, anxiety and intimacy/attachment issues. I use Somatic Experiencing, a very effective treatment for trauma/PTSD symptoms, helping the body and mind regulate itself. Clients in relationships with loved ones addicted or abusing substances can benefit from therapy to learn how to take care of themselves so as to limit the toxicity of proximity
I work from a cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic and solution focused standpoint. Our thoughts create our feelings and the behavior follows. With couples and families my job is to provide a safe place where effective communication can develop, listening and most importantly the ability to respond to each other rather than react are improved
I treat compulsive sexual behaviors, chemical dependency, anger managemnent & PTSD.I will assess, diagnose & write a letter for patients wanting to travel with their pet, allowing them to live without harrassment from landlords and airlines etc.

Derek Scott Hoxby's Groups

Men's Addiction Process Group

Addictions if untreated have the same traits: secrets, ritualistic behavior, obcessions of the mind followed by cravings and compulsive acting out then the shame kicks in and we say, "I'll never do that again and (2) weeks later we are left demoralized as we find ourselves doing it again often with catastrophic results. The group explores the science of addiction and how to gain the tools to stop the behavior. The group will begin June 01, 2017 and a phone interview to assess for suitability will be required. No more than 8 members per group session.

More about this group

Exploring Addiction

Addiction cycle, refers to the circular pattern characteristic of addiction. While there are many different types of addiction - alcohol, substance abuse, sex, overwork, overspending, gambling, nonmedical use of prescription drugs, overeating, etc. - the addiction cycle is common to each of them. It consists of phases, which may be of short or long duration, and generally progress in a repetitive pattern. We each spend some time in the various phases of the addiction cycle. The group will explore these phases and the physiology of how addictions hijack our brains to where we make potentially catostrophic decisions. Starts: 05/15/17
