My Approach to Helping
Codependency, alcoholism, compulsive behaviors, addictions and Al-Anon related issues often begin as coping mechanisms but eventually become the main problem in a person’s life. I use an integrated approach based on negative core belief work, 12-Step related tools, boundary modeling and psychodynamic-attachment theory to help clients process, reframe, replace and transform character defects and addictive behaviors that no longer serve them.
I believe the role of the therapist is to provide the client with enough unconditional support and practical strategies to help them succeed in their recovery journey. To facilitate this dynamic, I provide a non-judgmental and empowering therapeutic environment.
