Other specialties include the treatment of substance use and other addictive behaviors, gambling addiction, children & adolescents, relationships, and working with LGBTQ individuals, couples, and families.
Philosophers, poets, religious and spiritual leaders, all talk about the human condition. But what does it mean for the rest of us? Everyone runs into situations that produce anxiety, depression, disappointment, a need to make difficult decisions, tension in relationships, and other "discomforts" that we wish would go away. Sometimes we figure out how to get through these situations on our own but sometimes we need a little help. That's where we come in. HBH Counseling is a group of therapists dedicated to providing effective, evidence based therapy to help you to address life's situations, big and small.

Common self-defeating behaviors that you may be struggling with include: avoidance, panic, isolation, procrastination, passive or aggressive communication, substance abuse, food, sex, or gambling addiction, and self-injury to name some.

Addiction and mental health disorders are often misunderstood. I believe in meeting my clients where they are and empowering awareness and meaningful change. There isn't a one size fits all approach and I use various techniques to meet unique needs of each individual. Successful treatment involves education and support. I have worked in a variety of settings over the past 15 years including hospital based programs, day programs, outpatient programs, and within the criminal justice system.

Life can be difficult and recent events have made it much harder. As the Covid-19 crisis begins to end and we return to "normal" life there are still hurdles for us to navigate. 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 residual COVID-19 issues, 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.

During my life, I've come to notice that opportunities present themselves frequently, but it's about the desire for the acceptance of change, or the fear in doing so that makes the difference. One must have the ability to want to change and better themselves. I've allowed myself to seize every moment, despite any circumstances in front of me, and I encourage you to do the same. If you can't on your own, I am here to help you by building the mental framework that is needed, so you can acquire all of your dreams and goals.

Ideally, we use an eclectic approach with therapy. Encompassing one particular approach is not beneficial - a "one size fits all" is counter therapeutic and does not allow the client to find refreshing avenues to discover abstinence/sobriety. Coupling our therapeutic approaches with Self-Help immersion, or non-traditional means, is well received. Additionally, we focus on developing a relapse prevention plan from the very first session. We call these "living, breathing documents which change throughout treatment". Please feel free to call with any questions you may have for yourself or loved one.

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 08753 gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in 08753 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 08753.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a 08753 gambling therapist or gambling therapists in 08753 or those experienced with gambling behaviors in 08753.
