"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results." ADDICTION- whether to a CHEMICAL, PERSON or action, arises from an unconscious refusal to face and move through pain. The behavior is repeated, accompanied by the familiar feelings of being ALONE, UNIMPORTANT and SELF-DOUBT. It effects all relationships. Having experienced this same pain and recovery process (kicking and screaming), I've trained extensively so that I may confidently walk you through. If the thought of this process makes you anxious - then you are right were you are suppose to be. Call me. It's worth it and so are you.

" THE OPPOSITE OF ADDICTION IS ATTACHMENT". - Gabor Mate'

Having faced my own issues around anxiety, depression and unhealthy coping techniques, I bring years of personal research to my practice. After significant assessment, I use progressive and research - proven techniques to decrease anxiety and increase personal care . My goal is to provide intense, short- term and solution- oriented assistance.
