Believe me when I tell you that I'm no stranger to addiction or recovery. I am a person in long-term recovery myself, the child of an alcoholic, have been teaching addiction courses at the university level for over a decade, and have been treating addiction professionally as a therapist for nearly 25 years.
Through our therapy sessions, I will help you understand the nature of addiction, how it affects our thinking, and assist you in creating a treatment plan that will stop addiction from destroying your life. The goal is to provide you with all the information and tools you need to have a long-lasting, strong, and successful recovery.
I focus on many issues affecting the well-being of my clients including substance abuse and addiction, problem gambling, psychological and emotional issues, social and family relationships, personal and professional goals, wellness, spirituality, and coping with trauma and life stressors. I am here to help and I am here to listen. Though I can assist you with a number of issues, my specialty is in the treatment of addiction and problem gambling.
I provide therapy from a holistic perspective, noting the importance of integrally addressing the needs of the mind, body, and spirit in a successful recovery program. I offer specialized services designed to assist you in not only getting into recovery and healthy but in developing and maintaining an ongoing recovery plan and healthy lifestyle.
If you are hurting right now, please pick up the phone and call me for a free confidential consultation today. Addiction is an "equal opportunity destroyer," it destroys our relationships, jobs, freedom, finances, dreams, etc... but no one has to fight it alone. Let me help you heal. I am here and ready to help you regain control of your life.
Substance Use & Addiction
I'm especially passionate about the treatment of substance use and addiction. I am a person in long-term recovery myself, the child of an alcoholic, teach addiction classes at the university level, and have been treating addiction professionally as a therapist for nearly 25 years.
Domestic Violence & Anger
While anger is a normal and healthy emotion, what we do with it can make all the difference in the world. Regardless of how angry we become, there is never any excuse for being abusive. I help clients understand the dynamics of abuse, and how to prevent it.
Speaking & Presentations
I am available for public speaking engagements and to provide presentations on substance abuse, mental health, problem gambling, and domestic violence-related topics. CEUs are available with all presentations.
Problem Gambling is an addictive disorder that is gaining increased attention as gambling laws change. I will help you understand gambling disorder, how it affects our thinking, and assist you in creating a treatment plan that will stop gambling from destroying your life.
I was ordained into Christian ministry in 2009 and am happy to offer Christian counseling upon client request. The Christian counseling I provide combines clinical psychotherapy with Biblical guidance and principles.
I am available to offer clinical supervision for professionals seeking behavioral health licensure.
I provide individual psychotherapy for adults aged 18 and older. While addiction is my primary area of expertise, I can help with a variety of issues including but not limited to anxiety & depression, grief & loss, stress, anger, coping with life changes, and more. Teletherapy is available!
I'm more than happy to schedule a time for a FREE phone consultation. This will give us both a chance to talk about what is going on and how I may be able to help. Even if I am not the best fit to help you, I will assist you with an appropriate referral.
The Bible and Addiction Recovery
by Eric L. Davis
What does the Bible have to do with twelve-step recovery? EVERYTHING!
The Bible and Addiction Recovery takes us on a trip through the Biblical aspects evident in the twelve steps and a multitude of other recovery principles; including the power of belief, faith, honesty, open-mindedness, and willingness, sponsorship, gratitude, surrender, making amends, letting go of resentments, and more! It also contains references to scripture as well as several practical exercises and examples that can be used in group and individual therapy sessions. A useful tool for therapists, counselors, ministers, laypersons, and individuals in recovery alike!
Available in print, e-book, and .pdf formats!
