INDIVIDUAL ADDICTION TREATMENT
Choose a Path to Recovery That Fits Who You Are and What You Want
I offer individual sessions rather than group programs because I don’t believe people get to the root causes of their addiction in groups.
You will get the same education on addiction that other treatment programs provide but you will get much, much more.
This is not a one-size-fits-all program. We discuss your individual needs and I create a program specifically for you. There are standard educational elements of course, but we spend more time on things most relevant to you and your family.
I do not do this as just a job. I don’t do this to become wealthy. I’m not a big institution where you are simply a number. I care about people getting freedom from the prison of addiction. I care about families being restored and children having both parents in their lives. My life was nearly destroyed by addiction and I hurt many people when I was using. Some of whom won’t be in relationship with me even though I have eleven years of sobriety. I don’t want anyone else to experience that hell.
Addiction ruins people & families. I want to help those who truly want the help. I work with the addicted person AND their families. Many of my clients still reach out years later when they hit a hard patch in the road. I am in this with you & will work as hard as you do.
Let me give you fair warning though—I’m also very direct. I speak truth in love. Another words, I will call people out on their issues. You won’t get free from addiction -joyfully free- if you don’t deal with your problems.
I am also a Christ follower and include Biblical recovery in my program because the 12 steps originated in the Bible. I am not here to push my faith on you or demand anything from you. Your journey is your journey. However, if you are vehemently opposed to Christianity, I am likely not a good choice for you.
You will receive education on:
• The disease of addiction, neurobiology of addiction, 12-step program modalities & Biblical Recovery.
• Emotion regulation and stress reduction
• Healing from past wounds
• Shame and guilt
• Relapse prevention
• Finding faith
• Communication and Boundaries
• Creating a healthy life in recovery
• Family issues in recovery
• And much more
Are you ready to get free? Are you ready to do the hard work? Your addiction didn’t happen overnight so it’s not going to go away overnight. You’ve got to work at this over a period of time.
That’s why I offer what I think is your best option—a six-month program. Some people choose to continue on for more than 6-months but that is up to you. If you want a shorter program, I offer that option too.
PROFESSIONALS IN RECOVERY
I worked in Business and Marketing for many years. I was a highly functioning alcoholic and the thought of quitting sparked many, many concerns not the least of which is how am I going to deal with the happy hours, golfing events, travel, etc.? I know what you’re facing and vividly remember the tremendous pressure work puts on your entire life. I’ve gotten free and helped many, many others who are in the same position as you are. I’m here to walk the journey every step of the way and give you what you need to be successful. Is it going to be easy? No. But you’ve done lots of things that are not easy. You can do this too.
I’m a Master’s trained Addiction Counselor with many years of experience. I have also been in leadership positions in corporate America so I can offer wisdom from a place of knowledge and experience. I know what it is like to value anonymity and to prefer to discreetly work on personal issues.
I’m committed to working with busy schedules that involve frequent travel. We can meet via teleconferencing or by phone when necessary.

Cash, credit/debit cards accepted. I do not accept insurance. Your information is strictly confidential and will never be included on any medical record that follows you throughout life. I have experienced the negative side of having addiction on my medical record. I have been denied life insurance and then charged excessively simply because my medical record shows my addiction. You can get help without sharing your information with anyone.
"After treatment I felt so alone. I appreciated the support I got from AA and my sponsor but I needed more. I needed professional support and accountability. You gently nudged me to take the steps I needed to take. I couldn't have done it without you!!"
"I thought after three different inpatient treatments that there wasn't anything left that could help me to get and stay sober. I was wrong. You gave me the direction and support needed to create a life I truly want to live sober. I'm no longer existing. I have purpose and love life."
Brenda has saved my marriage and my life. She has helped me fill my black holes and helped me find the WHY. Her spiritual approach, her own recovery story and her vast knowledge of addiction has set me on a path that I could have never dreamed I would be on. I know that I could not have done this without Brenda. Her love, encouragement and strong devotion to helping people who suffer from addiction is something you will not find anywhere else."
"We were so confused over how to best support our daughter. Your wisdom, love, and guidance were such a gift."
"I knew I needed to take steps to protect the children but didn't want my wife to feel we were rejecting her. You gave me a ways to help her and protect the kids. Thank you so much!"
"Thank you so much for helping us to see things clearly and take the right next step. Your desire to help our son was so real that it helped us see what to do."
