Above all – do not give up on yourself.

Effective Therapy to Overcome Addiction & Self-Defeating Behaviors

“The most important thing in changing human behavior is the person’s motivation.” – Milton Erickson

Are you sabotaging happiness and putting it off for another day in the future? I rely on evidence-based cognitive therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, mindfulness approaches and Hypnosis to show you ways you might overcome addiction and self-defeating behaviors.

Brief Solution Focused Therapy

Combining Clinical Hypnosis & Empirically Validated Treatments for any habit and addiction including
who wish to ‘dis-sociate’ tobacco or marijuana use such as smoking, chewing, vaping in 5 sessions or less.

Addiction is fueled by anxiety – which is the fear of failure, fear of rejection and the fear of conflict… but just generally making yourself wrong in a myriad of different ways.

Do you rely on alcohol or substances to get through the day?

Do you feel stuck, do you procrastinate and get overwhelmed by perfectionism, anxiety and negative, discouraging thoughts?

Do you sometimes lack confidence when it comes to school work, test taking, speaking up in class or writing projects?

Do you avoid looking for a job which could definitely make a positive difference in your life, career and income?
