Addiction is suffering
Seeking help for behaviors you can't seem to stop is a hugely courageous step. It can seem so much easier to keep trying to "fix" it yourself, or to keep it secret for a little bit longer. Maybe the secret is out and you are at a loss for what to do next.
You are not the exception
No one is eager to admit they can't stop doing something. Addiction is defined by the loss of the freedom to choose not to be compulsive.
Recovery and freedom are possible. And you are not an exception to that rule.
I have helped people moderate or discontinue their use of substances (like alcohol, drugs, or food), people, or processes (like dieting, binging, shopping, or other forms of escape).
I have a great deal of respect for the difficult road of recovery and I love partnering with people who endeavor to do this work. I am experienced working with those who are still using and those who are in long term sobriety. I am comfortable working with those who embrace the 12 steps model, and those who are looking for an alternative to 12 steps. I am happy to coordinate care with treatment teams as appropriate.
I believe there are many paths to healing and the most effective one for you is the one that works for you. I would be deeply honored to accompany you on your journey to wellness.
