Addiction is a disease that affects everyone in the family, and it has a family solution.

Are you or a loved one in recovery from addiction?
Get the support you need to heal on a deeper level.

For addicts or alcoholics

Recovery is much more than sobriety. Uncover, discover and discard everything you’re not, and rediscover your true nature. This process of finding your true self will allow you to cross a bridge into a new life and experience self-love, forgiveness, and your full potential.

For parents of teens

You play an instrumental in your teen and young adult’s recovery. You also have the opportunity for parallel growth while your teen or young adult progresses in recovery.

For couples

The sooner you and your partner receive support in healing from the effects of addiction and codependency and learn healthier ways to communicate, resolve conflict, and set healthy boundaries, the stronger your individual and couple recovery will be.

For adult children of alcoholics and addicts

You may find that you’re struggling to let go of resentments, forgive your parents, and let them back into your life. Therapy can help you reconcile with your parents and form a healthier relationship with them now.

For families:

If you’re a parent or child of an alcoholic or addict:

  • Learn about why addiction is a family disease with a family solution.
  • Get validation of your painful experience.
  • Receive tools for healing, hope and encouragement.
  • Find the gift of growth in your difficult experience.

For couples:

  • Heal from the impact of addiction and relationship changes due to recovery.
  • Move out of trauma, fear, and mistrust and back to connection.
  • Resolve feelings of resentment, and restore appreciation.
  • Create a relationship based on “true mutuality.”

For individuals:

If you’re in long-term recovery from substance abuse, addiction, alcoholism, or enabling:

  • Receive support in your goal of abstinence
  • Attain personal growth all around for greater happiness, relationships, and success in work, school, and parenthood.
  • Feel empowered and connect with your intuition.

For individuals:

What sets me apart as an addiction, codependency, and recovery therapist:

I have struggled with addictive behaviors and codependency and continually work on my own recovery from a variety of spiritual and personal growth fronts. Instead of accepting that addiction is just a “family disease”, which will be handed down to the next generation, MY VISION is that couples will pass down the gifts of recovery and healthy intimate relationships to future generations.

  • I am an adult child of an alcoholic and codependent, so I’ve experienced the detrimental effects of alcoholism and codependency first hand.
  • I continually work on my own recovery from addictive behaviors, such as food and work. If these do not seem like serious or “real” addictions”, you can ask my husband.
  • I’ve done extensive work with families, couples, and individuals in recovery at family programs, my couples in recovery workshop, and at my private practice.
  • I am a Level III Certified Senior Addictions Counselor.
  • I facilitate a couples in recovery workshop called, “Have Each Other’s Backs Again!” .

I created this couples workshop because divorce rates are 4-7 times higher for couples with addiction issues. Today’s research shows that “Satisfying family relationships constitute one of the greatest predictors of long-term recovery” (Navarra, 2018). Couples and families deserve BOTH strong recoveries and marriages!

Lana is a compassionate and dedicated therapist who helped me feel heard, understand how my past has affected me, and identified patterns in my life. What brought me into therapy was feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and irritable, which led to me drinking too much and emotional eating. After working with Lana, I’m headed in the right direction and more mindful of my eating and drinking patterns.
