Get on the Path of Long-Term Addiction Recovery

Get on the Path of Long-Term Addiction Recovery

LET’S TALK

Counseling leads to deep healing.
Deep healing leads to lasting recovery.
Lasting recovery leads to the life you’ve always wanted.

If you’re struggling with alcohol or drug addiction your life is troublesome.
You may rationalize or minimize that your addiction is “not that bad.”
Yet, deep down you know it’s hurting you.
AND, it’s hurting the people you love and who love you.

It is challenging to stop an addiction – but always possible.

Perhaps you’re already clean and sober but still find life challenging. Without substances to soothe you during stressful times, you’re forced to face your pain.
Dealing with difficult emotions – anger, grief, anxiety – while sober can be overwhelming. You may feel out of control at times.
Perhaps you feel cheated as you thought your life would get substantially better once you got clean and sober.

The urge to relapse can be easily triggered.

Relapse rates for those in recovery are abysmal. Even small amounts of stress can trigger a deep desire to use or drink.

Counseling Can Help Ensure You Have Lasting Recovery

Addiction is the result of difficult or traumatic life experiences that have wounded you. The key to recovery is healing your wounds on a deep level.

Once you heal, the impulse to relapse in stressful times dramatically diminishes – or even disappears completely.

But not only that…

True healing leads to a happier and more fulfilling life.

As your counselor, my aim in addiction counseling is to help you:

Once you heal, the impulse to relapse in stressful times dramatically diminishes – or even disappears completely.

But not only that…

  • Improve your self-esteem and self-confidence – stop those critical thoughts from swirling in your head

  • Have more self-respect – let go of shame and guilt that has plagued you for far too long

  • Set appropriate boundaries with others – know when to say “no” and mean it

  • Have more time, energy, and money to do the things you love to do – engage in activities addiction robbed from you

  • Take pride in caring for yourself – become emotionally and physically healthy

Counseling Can Help You Develop the Kind of Life you May Have Never Dreamed Possible

We’ll work together in counseling to help you find the courage and strength to get (and stay) sober.
Once you’ve stopped your addiction, I’ll support and guide you toward lasting healing.
You’ll have better relationships, a more rewarding work life, and a deep knowing that you’ve turned a profound corner in your life.

Your best life awaits you.
