My approach tries to incorporate all the factors as they arise for an individual to try to help them acknowledge, identify and seek ways of reducing the harmful effects of their addiction and addictive behavior. We will talk about your family, your binges, finding spiritual and social support, your negative thoughts, your patterns of abuse, cue extinction, neurological processes and triggers, all this and more. If need be, I can provide formal intervention processes and support referrals to residential and intensive outpatient treatment . I provide “after-care” from such services as well.
But, mostly, we will create a space to explore your hopes and fears, support the hopes and face the fears.
