I help people in recovery and those wanting to begin the recovery process. Sometimes people turn to food, drugs or self-injury as a way to manage difficulties such as anxiety, depression, trauma, or a desire for social acceptance. Behaviors and substances that were once a solution (providing comfort, relaxation, pleasure or escape) may start to feel out of control and become a problem. And when behavior becomes addictive, our brains have literally created pathways that reinforce these patterns and make them very difficult to change.
It is important to have a safe, non-judgmental place to explore the addictive behaviors you are concerned about and set goals that address your concerns. We can also explore core issues lead to addiction, explore and identify the needs you are trying to meet, and find alternative coping skills. Using visualization, bilateral stimulation, and behavioral practice you can literally change the wiring in your brain to help break addictive patterns and reinforce new coping skills.
