Gail Appel, MS, LMHC, CASAC, CSAT, Counselor in New York
ADDICTION RECOVERY THERAPIST. If you, or someone you love, is in recovery or still struggling with Sex or Love Addiction, Porn Addiction or Alcoholism/Chemical Dependency YOU NEED A THERAPIST WHO UNDERSTANDS THESE ISSUES. I have many years of experience doing individual, couples and group therapy with adults who are in the early to middle stages of recovery, as well as those who have achieved long term sobriety. I also help those of you dealing with the trauma of being a partner/spouse of an addict.
In therapy we will explore the ways in which addictions have affected your relationships, your ability to deal with difficult emotions, and the choices you have made in your life. I am supportive of twelve step programs as well as other ways of maintaining sobriety.
The road to recovery can be a bumpy one, but a good therapist can help you navigate it. I look forward to speaking with you.
