"I believe that clients have inherent strengths and abilities to solve whatever presenting problem they’re faced with; sometimes life’s obstacles and challenges get in the way of one’s ability to tap into those strengths. I approach every client through a strength-based lens to empower and help clients develop a more positive/hopeful perspective about the presenting issue causing distress at that time. I utilize a collaborative approach, working with clients to achieve set goals they wish to achieve and depending on those goals, so does the modality of therapy (individual, couple, parents, or family).

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.
