I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 13 years of clinical experience. I’ve provided counseling for many different populations at various levels of care, including adults and adolescents struggling with Addiction, Alcohol Use, Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, PTSD, Anger Management, Child Abuse or Neglect, Dual Diagnosis, Relapse Prevention, Substance Use, and Stress. I use a mix of Attachment-based, CBT, Client-Centered Therapy, Family Systems, Trauma Focused, Strength-Based, Narrative, and Person-Centered. I believe that having to navigate through my struggles, I can relate to feeling hopeless which enables me to help.

Dealing with addiction can be very difficult and overwhelming to deal with alone. Addiction doesn't look the same for everyone but anyone can overcome addiction. Drug abuse and addiction problems can be devastating, not only to the individual but to the family as well. Knowing that you are not alone is the first step to ease your mind. Everyone with an addiction problem has their own story that should be individualized not judged but heard. Identifying the biological, environmental, behavioral, and social causes and consequences of drug use and addiction is just some of the steps that we will face together.

If you or someone you love are having problems related to alcohol or drug use, there is hope and a way out. It is most useful to meet with someone who truly understands addiction and can provide a true assessment. I will work with you, your family and any other healthcare providers to develop a plan of action based on your needs. Often times the road to recovery starts with meeting someone who listens to understand, meets you with genuine care and concern and can provide useful recommendations. Chemical dependency is a primary illness not a secondary mental health issue; trust a counselor who entered this specialty field.

Looking for support is a big step, and it's okay to ask for help. My areas of focus have been depression, anxiety, substance abuse, anger management, and victims/perpetrators of domestic violence. I have degrees in rehabilitation counseling and cultural anthropology, but some of my best lessons have been my own life experiences. Life has taught me to be human first, clinician second. Past professional settings have included outpatient clinics, behavioral hospitals and the local MHA.

Hi! My name is Dr. Michelle Loper and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and owner of B&L Psychotherapy and Consulting Services. Counseling can be a life-changing event but may bring about some anxiety and fear. People often come to counseling because of events that have happened and maybe they feel that things are not manageable on their own. Sometimes they need someone to talk with that can help them to find direction. It is also possible you have tried counseling before and found it to be beneficial and just need a booster to build back up your skills. If you are here looking, it is likely you may desire some change.

I love being a counselor. Watching my clients transform and grow is the most rewarding part of my job. I have specialized for over a decade in addiction and trauma, with emphasis on issues facing today's teens.. I meet my clients where they are emotionally, encouraging them to find their inner strengths and work toward goals together. We all have the innate ability to handle whatever life throws our way. However, it is often overwhelming and feels too heavy to walk through alone. My mission is to listen without judgment and help my clients find solutions that increase their overall well-being.

Alcohol Use Therapists

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
