Loneliness. Deep and profound loneliness is a common theme that I have seen in working with individuals and families struggling with addiction. "Addiction is the disease of escape" Compulsive and self destructive behaviors are an ettempt to escape underlying emotional pain. With appropriate clinical interventions we can learn healthy coping skills and alternate ways of dealing with our emotional pain. This is the first step to establishing intimacy and meaningful relationships, bringing into our life the happiness we all deserve.

Together we will explore limiting beliefs and messages that you hold deep inside as a result of your trauma (BigT or little t). Untreated it contributes to anxiety, substance abuse, depression, and/or codependency. This results in a repetitious pattern of self – sabotage. In fact, we can become addicted to the drama &chaos. A true source of unhappiness. Leaving you feeling stuck. I utilize modalities that actually move stuck energy. EMDR can reset negative core beliefs with a more adaptive positive belief using rapid eye movements & reprocessing disturbing events. You don’t even have to talk about them to have it be effective.

Tool Box for Life and Relational Skills When clients graduate from treatment, they take with them a box full of "tools", such as effective anger management techniques, avoiding confrontations that lead to negative expressions of anger, resolving conflict peacefully and quietly, making the right decisions in every aspect of life, and perseverance to always build skills against life's problems and apply them consistently. Skill development is relational. No one lives in isolation; everyone maintains many types of relationships. Treatment provides chances to improve all relationships by communicating effectively, listening without making assumptions, and avoiding miscommunication that brings on anger and/or conflict.

Brasileiros que vivem na Florida podem fazer terapia com alguém que fala sua língua e entende seus dilemas à luz de sua cultura. Potencialmente, Cada adulto carrega uma criança ferida, estancada em algum de negligência afetiva ou trauma não resolvido. Por outro lado, o estresse da vida cotidiana pode gerar sintomas de depressão e ansiedade, bem como comportamentos disfuncionais que exigem reparação do passado, ajustes no presente e habilidades para funcionar melhor no futuro. Na terapia, quando é incondicionalmente acolhido, o cliente tende a amadurecer como pessoa, passando a funcionar melhor no amor, no trabalho e na comunidade.

Depression often feels crushing; as if we are stuck in the past. The pressure of anxiety can feel as if we are stuck in the "what if" of the future. I would like to help you become more present and mindful. We are often told what we are "supposed" to do, but don't know what we want from this life. I help individuals, families, and couples solve longstanding problems, clarify values, and build on strengths to navigate life's challenges more purposefully and effectively. Changing problematic patterns in our lives is critical to increasing contentment. We cannot change our stories, but we can change our relationship to them.

Our thoughts, feelings and behaviors create our experiences. As a psychotherapist I believe therapy is a process of creating change. Therapy allows a person to explore and develop skills of awareness and recognition of patterns that needs to be changed. In therapy you will explore and develop these skills to effectively cope with psychological, personal and behavioral transitions. I work with each individual on finding the right balance of mind, body and spirit connection that gives the person the ability to better assess their personal goals and plan for a more satisfying future.

Gambling Therapists
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or Boca Raton gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in Boca Raton typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step program for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behavior in Boca Raton.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a Boca Raton gambling therapist or gambling therapists in Boca Raton or those experienced with gambling behaviors in Boca Raton.
