"As a result of thousands of years of evolution, our thoughts have become predominately negative, irrational, and obsessive, causing anxiety. depression, addiction, and many other problems. I teach clients to change their relationship to their thoughts, by realizing they are not accurate, do not tell our story, and mostly unnecessary. This realization, along with daily mindfulness exercises causes thoughts to lose most all of their power over us. I help clients gain control of their emotions using Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) which teaches them to think much less and stop reacting to and identifying with thoughts that occur."

"In the past 11 years I have become quite adept at working with clients who have trauma histories. Trauma can be major or it can be minor. I find that all human beings have experienced some form of trauma in their lives and this trauma often contributes to our current dysfunctions. I use a method called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) with many of my clients. This is a physiological method that is both quick and effective. So whether you are suffering from depression, anxiety, addiction, ect. I can help you both rapidly and dramatically."

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

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Westport are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Westport you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Westport and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Westport or family therapy in Westport.
