The patterns are myopically focused on the problem - the person with addiction. We need a Both/And approach. The Problem Around The Problem contains aspects of the solution. Families can be a strong part of the solution. The Family Recovery Solution Deep Community Online. Shifting the thinking - Human Transformation occurs in the context of Human Relationships.

  • Dear Jeff, It was an honor and pleasure to work with you and now the great team you have put in place … We will have all the reports ready to send out by Friday to his team members … The vested energy and dedication that everyone has put forth is remarkable, and what a great way for the family to start the new year…!!

    Thank you again, Jeff, for doing such an eloquent job of orchestrating the amazing case management and intervention. The family is lucky to have found you!

  • At first I was pretty reluctant to tell anyone about my failing marriage and my alcoholic wife. It was an embarrassing situation for me. But having the convenience of having phone sessions from the privacy of my office made it much easier for me to reach out for help. Working with you has helped me to recognize I do have options. After hearing my wife say she would stop drinking numerous times only to start again, she finally agreed to go into treatment if she has another drink. Thanks Jeff! I’ll let you know what happens.

  • When Jeff worked in our agency, I got to witness qualities in him, I respect in any good therapist: Commitment to his own personal growth, fair-mindedness, even-handedness, not intimidated by bullying, and very knowledgeable about substance abuse issues. He was a great team player and a real asset to our agency.

    Jeff has excellent conceptualization skills in seeing the big picture within families with multiple needs. Clients loved to work with him. His unique life experiences singularly qualify him for working with individuals and families with substance abuse issues.

  • When Jeff worked with us, I noticed he has a very unique way of listening, not pushing his judgment onto others. He has an incredible ability to hear what people are saying, not react, and sum up the problem and what was needed. He’s very approachable and gave great feedback to our clients.

    Jeff has excellent theoretical understanding of the roles in the problem drinker / alcoholic family, as well as the disease itself. He really gets the importance of the family’s role in the recovery process.
