About

Do you feel unsatisfied and unhappy with where you are? Does your substance use stop you from realizing the life you deserve? Have you hit a point in your life where it’s getting harder and harder to hold it all together? Do you say “everything is fine” just to keep people away? Do you minimize or ignore the harm alcohol or other drugs do to you? Can you imagine what it would be like if the weight was lifted? It will take courage for you to decide that you need help. By doing so you will create a life that you feel is worth living. A life where you are confident, fulfill your needs, and gain control over your life.
I have over 28 years of addiction counseling experience. I am experienced and facilitate my sessions online. I am currently licensed through California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals. My techniques include Cognitive Behavioral Treatment, Motivational Interviewing and more. If CJ required I can help you to complete mandatory treatment.
I have served women, men, the LGBTQ community and families with substance abuse problems to have healthier lives. I am cross-culturally responsive with a long history of working with people of different cultures. I offer a safe and nonjudgmental experience. Let's have a discussion and together we will make a plan that will develop enduring positive change.

Les Washburn's Groups

Online Relapse Prevention

There are four main ideas in relapse prevention. First, relapse is a gradual process with distinct stages. The goal of the group is to recognize the early stages. Second, recovery is a process of growth and development. Third, the main tools of relapse prevention are cognitive behavioral treatment to develop healthy coping skills. Fourth, relapse is explained in terms of rules . 1) your life needs change ; 2) to be rigorously honest; 3) ask for help; 4) self-care; and 5) don’t follow the rules.

Online Stress Reduction

Has stress thrown your life out of balance? Stretched too thin, crazy schedules at work and home, no time for exercise or fun? Eating junk food or drink more when feeling stressed? Hard time relaxing or sleeping because of racing thoughts? Feeling tired all the time or getting sick easily? Having a shorter fuse and snap more easily at loved ones or co-workers? Feeling overwhelmed, like you just need a break from all the responsibilities in your life? This group is designed to explore stress and how you will be able to gain control and reduce your stress.
