Announcement icon Due to COVID-19 our practice is now offering telemedicine therapy to anyone who resides in California.
If previous attempts at stopping substance use have failed or if you want to learn to manage your use rather than abstain, call us for a free phone consultation. We approach addiction as a biopsychosocial phenomenon and can help you understand the biological, emotional, and behavioral factors of your drug use using evidence-based interventions. Our therapeutic style is compassionate and non-judgmental but we will also be direct and challenge you to deeply examine your choices. We strive to create a safe, confidential environment where you feel comfortable exploring your choices.
We work from a harm reduction philosophy which allows room for abstinence and moderation management of drugs and alcohol. We also have experience treating other impulse control disorders such as sex addiction and kleptomania and have experience working with sex offenders. We also offer substance abuse evaluations for professionals.
Ways we can help: reducing consequences associated with substance use, treating co-occurring disorders such as depression, grief, anxiety, trauma, or personality disorders, teaching mindfulness skills to interrupt the desire for immediate gratification, working with friends and families to help them understand addiction and address codependency.
