Philosophy and Approach
(Sexual Addiction Treatment)
I believe in each person's ability, to find within themselves, the resources needed to confront destructive behavior patterns that block personal growth and development. I guide using holistic approaches and use many modalities which include Guided Imagery, Art Therapy, Psychodrama and EFT and EMI.( see next page)
Coupled with support systems, I will help clients recognize self-delusion and understand addictive behavior.
I will help clients respond to crisis and change and to manage the physical and emotional impact of their addiction/co-addiction.
For all clients, I will help them deepen their recovery for a profound life change.
