“As a licensed chemical dependency professional (CDP)”, Jack assists clients therapeutically to remain clean of substances and behaviors that make up what we call ‘addiction’ or ‘dependence.’ There is a high correlation between an addiction and trauma. Usually an addiction is the ‘medication’ one uses to numb or escape the effects of childhood and/or adult trauma. Most of the clients Jack has worked with have what he calls stacked trauma; unresolved childhood trauma, with added adult trauma stacked on top of that.

This combination helps clients resolve that which drives the need for the addiction.
We do not judge our clients. We will work with you to eliminate blame and shame, as that is what keeps a person pinned to their addiction. We respect your sensitivities and priorities for therapy. We are a partner and guide on your journey of recovery. Jack invites you to work with us to reclaim your life from the limitations of addiction.
