There are many degrees to problem behaviors. Answers aren’t always simple. The worst problems are those not addressed. Wherever or whatever the current situation, let’s get it on the radar.
RADAR’s primary goal is to help you objectively understand your situation, orient you to a larger perspective, and collaboratively guide your path.
Understand, Orient, Guide…for Direction, Prevention and Empowerment.
Whether it’s for you or for someone you care about, let’s just figure out where we’re going before we end up somewhere we don’t want to be.
Online Sessions Available
RADAR specializes in problems that present in many forms and varying degrees, and which often have complicating factors like depression, anxiety, multiple forms of trauma and other mental health and medical conditions.
We help sort that out.

Solution focused on individual strengths
The main question isn’t whether someone is or isn’t an alcoholic or drug addict. That question alone keeps people from getting support. Is the substance use related to problems in one’s life? If so, to what degree? And ultimately, what can be done about it? There’s a lot that can be done about it–even before labels and traditional treatments.
It’s easy to minimize and rationalize problems with eating, exercise and body image because “I don’t look like that.” This can be especially true with men. Also common with eating disorders is co-occurring substance abuse, often overlooked. One may improve while the other worsens. These must be addressed together.
Compulsive, problematic, a struggle to NOT do. Internet, gaming, sex/porn, gambling, exercise, shopping. “Addiction” is not the best framework to define all behaviors, nor are treatments the same. It’s important to have proper assessment from someone trained in co-occurring problems to rule out other potential disorders that can present similarly.
Athletes & Performance
It’s not disordered to be serious about athletics and performance, though many serious athletes have more all-or-nothing tendencies which can impede performance and lead to other more serious concerns. It’s easy to overlook potential problems until they’re real problems. Either way, it’s not just in the mind–it’s in the body.
