Licensed Mental Health Counselor, MS, LMHC, LPC, CASAC-Master
Some people are turned on by the bright lights, glamour and the potential financial benefits of gambling. Reality is, the house always wins. I help those with gambling addiction explore other means of occupying themselves so they can become more financially fulfilled and less dependent on gambling.

If you are struggling a gambling addiction, I am a highly effective and experienced psychologist who can help you immensely. My approach is not based off of the "same old" addiction treatment. I won't push you to attend Gamblers Anonymous groups. I also won't demand that you be abstinent first for a period of time before I will treat you (many therapists unfortunately operate this way). Furthermore, I won't even demand that you work towards abstinence. And I will not tell you that you have a disease and are helpless over your gambling addiction or that it is your primary problem (it often is not). So what will I demand of you? My only request is that you attend your weekly treatment therapy sessions on a consistent, regular basis. My approach is very collaborative, and together we will discover what goals are best for you. You will have a lot of input into this important goal setting step. I have some patients who have goals of abstinence, moderation, mere reduction of the behavior, or substitution (switching to a less harmful behavior). Aside from behavioral goals, some of the most important goals will be to identify the functions or reasons for your compulsive gambling behavior and then address them in healthier, more effective ways. I call my approach a "whole person" treatment because we are not just trying to address your gambling addiction or compulsive behavior, but we are trying to improve all of you! This could include your emotional and mental health, physical health, work performance, academic success, relationships (i.e., with family, romantic partners, peers, and colleagues), and so forth. With my therapy, you will ultimately become a far better version of yourself and may very well even reach your potential. If you want top-notch service, an approach based on a wealth of experience and evidence-based knowledge, a truly innovative and inspirational therapist, and real-life changes, and you don't want to pay for inappropriate judgments, stigmas, biases, or antiquated ideas, then I am the right professional for you. Aside from the invaluable personal growth and development you can experience with me, my approach will most likely even save you money in the long run! Think about how much money you may be spending each week on gambling, or the time wasted on this activity that could have been invested in your career or other life-changing opportunities! E-mail or call me today and let's start getting you on track to living the life you truly deserve, one that can be so rewarding and fulfilling. Currently, I am only taking patients for my group therapy program, which has the added benefit of working with peers struggling with similar issues who can support you and your goals as well. And if you are hesitant about therapy, then take another step in the right direction and download a FREE COPY of my e-book that outlines lots of effective strategies based on my wealth of experience: "The New Trend of Solving Addiction Problems".
