Are You Struggling With Addiction and Addictive Behaviors Around Internet, TV, Shopping or Money? Experienced Counseling Can Help!

Have you ever reached for the closest piece of chocolate or run to the corner for a latte’ to make yourself feel better? If so, you’re not alone. And it’s not “good” or “bad” – but the relief is temporary. So when it wears off, then what? “Lite” Addictions are quick-fix habits that temporarily soothe the edges of stress, anxiety and the intense pace of modern life. Most of us that go for the “quick-fix” are probably more “addictive” than addicted. We are normal people who feel overwhelmed and exhausted, and we want relief. You may seek to distract yourself or make yourself feel better – by overspending, internet porn, fast food, or spending hours zoned out in front of your TV or computer. The problem is… these addictive habits not only block joy and aliveness, they also rewire your brain for more of the same. Over time, these habits can become hard addictions – especially if you have a family history of addiction.

Realizing there’s a problem – and then deciding to get help – can be difficult. But if you find yourself turning to the same behavior over and over, help is available. I have over 30 years experience in the field of addiction counseling. As a Certified Counselor and Addiction Therapist, I can help you identify and change your destructive, addictive habits so you can deal with these feelings in a healthier way. I teach specific strategies to cope with stress and the emotional ups and downs that addictive behaviors produce. In fact, I wrote Intentional JOY: How to Turn Stress, Fear & Addiction (available here or Amazon or Barnes Noble) specifically to help my clients deal with the negative thinking and emotional ups and downs that drive addictive behaviors. As a holistically trained counselor I work with the whole person – mind, body, emotions & spirit, depending on the needs of my clients. Over the past 30 years, I’ve worked with people from throughout the Central Valley. This includes from Modesto to Oakdale, Empire, Ceres, Turlock, Hughson, Livingston, and Merced as well as Escalon, Ripon, Manteca, Stockton, Tracy, Lodi.
