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 your first appointment.
