Generally, I use a combination of traditional cognitive behavioral techniques with strategies to improve motivation. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnotherapy are used for an integrated reinforcement of behavioral change. These blended techniques work on the goals through both a conscious behavioral and a subconscious level so that each aspect of the mind and being are congruent and working together. These techniques are indicated for addictions, mood disorders, stress relief, and wellness goals such as smoking cessation and weight reduction, or other compulsive behaviors.

Many people are haunted by interpersonal traumas and other wounds that prevent them from living fulfilling lives. Their lives may appear "perfect" from the outside but they struggle with shame, psychological symptoms, engage in self-sabotaging behavior, and feel isolated. I strive to provide a supportive, collaborative, and safe space for individuals to work through their inner experiences to increase awareness of how and why they feel stuck and not satisfied. My focus in therapy is to help individuals explore how their ways of relating to others may hinder growth and wellness and create psychological distress.

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

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