William H. Gottdiener, PhD, Psychologist in New York
You have been drinking, using drugs, gambling or gaming too much. You're not even sure you like the high any more, but you hate living without it. You spend a ton of money on your addiction; make promises to yourself to stop or at least use less, but it never happens for long and now you're not even sure you can do it any more. Part of you still wants help. You want to wake up one day and not feel owned by your bottle, needle, pill, slot machine or technology. You want to be free and happy.
You want a therapist who gets you. You don't want rehab and you don't want someone who will make you promise to be abstinent when in your heart you know can't--at least not immediately. You want someone who will help you get better in your way.
I am an addictions psychologist with more than 20 years of experience helping people with addictions and training other therapists how to help people with addictions. You are someone who needs help now and who needs to start getting better in a way that works for you. Call me.
