For 25 years, I have assisted people with a variety of addictions, from the exogenous abuse of drugs and alcohol, to the ones that stem from the chemicals already inside the brain, such as sex and love addiction, abandonment patterns, sexual compulsions, gambling, internet, and workaholism. Unlike most psychotherapists, I’m a Board Certified Addiction Specialist, well versed in both abstinence and harm reduction strategies. Unlike most addiction professionals, I am also psychotherapist who also treats the anxiety, depression, and other psychological issues that often manifest after being uncovered through recovery.

Do you want to feel more satisfied with your life and relationships? Are you stuck in an unwanted role or struggling to change unhealthy patterns? I work with adults who are dealing with self-esteem issues, difficulty holding boundaries with others, anger management, anxiety, depression, addiction, and PTSD/C-PTSD. Making life changes alone can be challenging since people tend to live on autopilot and may not fully recognize the dynamics that are playing out in their lives. Everyone can benefit from a fresh perspective. Having greater clarity empowers people to make informed, reflective decisions instead of acting out of habit.

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

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