Are you looking to overcome a substance use disorder or any kind of addictive behavior (e.g. food addiction). Do you feel like you have tried so many times to be sober but just can't understand why you keep relapsing? My approach to treating these disorders is holistic but also can work with the 12 step model. I look at what may be driving this behavior the "underlying core issues" rather than focusing on symptoms alone. I do not see clients who are actively using drugs or alcohol. I am able to counsel family members of addicts.

Accessing a sense of belonging in your life can be difficult when trauma creeps up from previous experiences. It is normal to feel confused and overwhelmed when triggers seem to limit our options. This often results in experiencing an increase in anxiety, depression, addiction behaviors, self-defeating beliefs, or a sense of hopelessness. These are symptoms that develop when parts of us are left unknown or are misunderstood. You are not alone. Help is available, and you have taken the first step. To find a good fit, I recommend contacting several therapists in order to see who resonates with you and your specific needs.
