Stopping Smoking

Philip Starkman

Registered Psychotherapist, MSW, RSW
In my practice, I provide a supportive and empowering environment for clients seeking to conquer the challenge of stopping smoking. Understanding the complex interplay of habits, emotions, and physical dependency, I employ a holistic approach that includes Mindfulness, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Role-Playing. This comprehensive strategy is designed to address not just the act of smoking but the underlying triggers and stressors that contribute to tobacco use. Through mindfulness, clients learn to recognize and manage cravings in the moment, while EFT offers a tool for reducing the emotional intensity associated with withdrawal. CBT helps in restructuring thoughts around smoking, and role-playing prepares clients for real-world situations that might otherwise derail their cessation efforts. My role is to guide you through this journey, providing the tools, support, and insights needed to navigate the path to becoming smoke-free, focusing on building resilience, self-awareness, and healthier coping mechanisms for a life of improved well-being and freedom from smoking.

Smoking has been argued to be one of the hardest addictions to quit. Many of the providers in the practice have run smoking cessation groups and individual therapy utilizing cognitive behavioral strategies to help you notice triggers, manage cravings, and change behaviors. It is through this three pronged approach that helps create change and increase the likelihood of success!
