My Approach to Helping

It's not about the alcohol. It's not about the drugs. It's not food, relationships, gambling, sex or porn. It's about "Pain". We all have pain and how it is treated will determine the quality of the recovery. Many programs do a disservice to clients focusing "too much" on the addiction. Certainly the addiction needs to be arrested but if the pain is not, the addiction will continue.
I have a compassionate manner to help you move from your past ways of handling your pain to a new way of Life.
Here's my hand out to you to take a leap of faith and let me help you move on with your life- as I have hundreds !
