Addiction Psychologist

My entire professional career has been dedicated to addiction. Many people consider it my specialty, and as I noted under the section of my method of “carefrontation,” I approach each individual without shaming or blaming, but with respect and understanding, while reinforcing personal responsibility. There are so many types of addiction: alcohol and drugs, gambling, sex, shopping, food, working, the Internet, – and the list goes on and on! I like to utilize a particular paradigm which focuses on the “hub” of the personality – viewing the addictions as the “spokes.” Insight and understanding with a focus on results-oriented techniques is what leads to lasting sobriety and not merely behavioral interruption. All of my work with the patient is “bathed” in an atmosphere of caring, and as Carl Rogers would say “unconditional positive regard.”
