Gambling Problems

I have been treating problem gamblers and their loved ones for nearly twenty years. And now with State-funded treatment, I am able to offer gambling counseling at no cost.

  • Has gambling taken control of your life?
  • Do you spend more time or money gambling than you planned?
  • Do you gamble to escape problems or feelings such as stress, boredom, anger, loss, emptiness or loneliness?
  • Do you feel depressed, remorseful, anxious, numb or suicidal after gambling?
  • Are you experiencing more problems in your finances, relationships, work or health because of your gambling?
  • Do you lie, hide, or make excuses for your gambling?
  • Are you embarrassed or ashamed about your gambling?


Through therapy you can find the help and hope you need to make life without gambling possible:

  • Find the strength to live your life free from gambling, urges, and other addictions
  • Relieve your financial pressures and stressors
  • Minimize urges and other triggers to gamble
  • Develop healthy coping skills, connections and activities in place of gambling
  • Rebuild your self-esteem, and self-confidence
  • Process the guilt, shame and other painful feelings and experiences that often led you to continue gambling
  • Regain trust and become trustworthy
  • Find support without judgment
