Obstacles that can lead to compulsive behaviors, isolation and overwhelming frustration must be addressed if we are to make healthier and more fulfilling personal choices. As a nationally recognized expert in the field of addiction and compulsive disorders, my therapeutic approach is derived from a strength oriented perspective in which patients are encouraged to tap into their own resilience, and unique resources. The results of our work together will be an individualized therapeutic experience, where meaningful change is possible.

Gambling Therapists
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or New York gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in New York typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step program for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behavior in New York.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a New York gambling therapist or gambling therapists in New York or those experienced with gambling behaviors in New York.
