I'm an addiction psychologist who helps people moderate their drinking and drug use or stop completely.
Clinical Psychologist in Chicago, IL
I work with people who are interested in moderating alcohol use (cutting down), stopping their alcohol use for a period (30-90 days), or who want to abstain from alcohol entirely either through a formal recovery program or not. I have experience integrating relapse prevention skills, 12 step recovery principles, and ways to manage urges and cravings to drink. I can also help people learn practical ways to moderate or decrease their drinking.
I have worked with high accountability professionals in residential and outpatient settings to develop skills to manage symptoms of burnout, prevent future burnout, and learn skills to foster resilience. Additionally, I have experience helping clients re-connect to neglected areas of their lives, including relationships, hobbies and interests, and pleasure/play to foster a connection to their whole self.
