Why Can't I Experience Pleasure in Other Ways Besides Drinking?
You are a high achieving professional woman but what people don’t know is what it takes for you to make it through the day. Hungover in the morning, pounding coffee and Advil to make it through your high pressured day, only to go home to take care of the kids, see your partner and go to bed after you have drunk enough to feel relaxed and like you don’t care anymore. You are trapped in a cycle of surviving and numbing out. And because so many look up to you, because you have so much responsibility, you feel like a fraud every time you go to pour yourself another. But you don’t know what else to do. You fear if it were to continue you would put your career and your relationships in jeopardy. You keep trying to say “This is the last time” when you wake up with the pounding headache and dry mouth, but it never is.
You are smart, motivated, and conscientious, but you cannot seem to get a handle on your drinking.
Whether you self-medicate to numb the stress of daily life or the hurts you experienced in your past, I can help.
My name is Adina and I help high-achieving, smart women who want to make peace with their addiction and find pleasure in other ways throughout their lives.
