I’ve been where you’ve been, and I've nearly lost it all... But then I came back stronger than ever and made sure I know EVERYTHING there is to know about addiction, so that I never go back.
In addition to my two Master’s degrees and a PhD in psychology from UCLA, I’ve written a bestselling book called The Abstinence Myth: A New Approach for Overcoming Addiction Without Shame, Judgment, or Rules.
I’ve also made numerous television appearances as a mental health, addiction, relationships and shame expert over the years and have a column on Psychology Today where I strive to eliminate the stigma surrounding addiction and mental health issues through my writing, and a TEDx Talk under my belt.
If you want to see more of my credentials, go ahead and Google my name or stalk my LinkedIn profile. But that’s not what makes me credible. You know what does? My own struggles with drugs, anxiety, sex addiction, and shame over the years. And the fact that I’ve overcome every single one of them.
I can help you do the same.
