Austin-based Addiction Counseling
When I picture an individual struggling with addiction, I don’t think of a victim. I don’t think of a criminal. I don’t think of a “mentally weak” person who “just lacks willpower.” In fact, I don’t think of an individual at all.
Instead, I think of
- all the relationships, past and present,
- all the moments, big and small,
- all the interactions, good and bad,
that change one’s path in life.
At Vibrant Counseling, I am passionate about helping people discover the real reasons they’re struggling to quit. I believe insight promotes lasting change.
If you want to kick a habit for good, you have to understand how and why that habit formed. I’m here to help you take an honest look at your behaviors without feeling attacked or ashamed.
I specialize in helping people overcome all types of addictions, including –
- Prescription drugs
- Stimulants (Adderall)
- Opioids (OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet)
- Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan)
- Internet/social media
If you are struggling with one or more of these addictions, it’s time to seek help and rediscover your true potential. Counseling works. Contact me to schedule a free, confidential, in person consultation.
