Therapy for Substance Abuse, Compulsive Eating, and Self Medicating Behaviors

When you turn to food, shopping, pot, wine, screentime - or your numbing agent of choice - you are doing your best to regulate an unpleasant emotional state. The behavior is not bad or wrong. It's just not that effective and can lead to negative consequences.

My job is to support and coach your inner parent as you learn to decode the messages your emotions are sending. Once you know what you feel and need, I can help your inner parent become skilled at providing both emotional care and practical help. That way, you won't have to rely on substances or escape behaviors to cope.

If you are using substances that interfere with your ability to benefit from therapy, I may refer you to another provider for early recovery work and recommend that we begin therapy at a later date.
