The relief you seek is inside of you…let’s find it and make it stronger than the problem! You may be fed up with using/abusing substances to cope with other issues (anxiety, depression, post-trauma, etc), feeling a happier life will always be out of your reach or tired of looking in the mirror and seeing shame, guilt, or discontent. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. You’re ready to relieve yourself of the control substances seem to have over you . You’re ready to regain the confidence in yourself you once had. Most of all, you’re ready to flourish in life rather than just live (survive).
Clients come to me looking for a therapist who can personally relate to the struggles related to addiction/co-occurring disorders, because therapy should be a place where you feel understood and safe. Sessions with me are non-judgemental and educational. Together, we will relieve you of the double-edged sword referred to as co-occurring disorders.
As an experienced addiction/co-occurring disorder therapist, I believe that when personal experience is coupled with professional knowledge amazing things can happen. No one has walked in your shoes, but some have traveled the same paths. Call me today for a f fifteen minute phone consultation. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Michael Peila's Groups

"Being Mindful with Addictions"

I created this group as a combination of a psycho-educational as well as a process group to teach individuals mindfulness techniques and how they can not only relieve the cravings of addiction, but also promote long term recovery. It is also a process group because a lot of time is spent sharing past and present challenges and triumphs regarding coping skills related to addiction.
