Some Words from Jerry "I believe we all struggle with the experience of living, and that sometimes it is valuable to get help along the way. It is my goal to make your process of learning and recovery as nurturing and efficient as possible through counseling.
As a marriage and family therapist and substance abuse counselor, I work with individuals, groups, and families to facilitate recovery from the debilitating impact of addictions, depression, and other mental health issues.
I believe dependency on mood alternating chemicals, and other forms of addiction, are primary disease processes which, if allowed to progress untreated, will result in severe physical, personal, and social impairments. As with other progressive diseases, however, addiction and other behavioral health issues are responsive to treatment.
Addiction is a disease that affects the entire family Sometimes people use chemicals as a way of coping with the stressors of life. When addiction is left untreated its natural course spirals downward affecting all aspects of an individual's life, including relationships, work, and health. When treated, substance abuse can be stopped. With education, group and/or individual counseling and continued involvement in on-going self-help or other sober support systems, people are able to live creative and productive lives. Relationships are renewed and once again compassion and intimacy become available to the individual, as well as the family.
