FREE Counseling For Problem Gamblers & Their Family
If  you or a family member have a gambling problem, or a gambling addiction, you are entitled to no-cost state-funded counseling help.  I am a certified Problem Gambling Counselor.  I can offer you, or a family member, cost-free counseling through a state-funded research program conducted by the UCLA Gambling Studies Program in collaboration with the State of California Office of Problem Gambling.  To begin treatment as soon as possible and access this benefit, please call me for a phone interview.  Below are some question to help you determine if you or your family member has a problem and whether counseling would be appropriate.  

For further information about gambling problems and solutions, please see my blog link below.

Does someone in your family have a gambling problem?

  • Does your family member ever lose time from work due to gambling?
  • Have you noticed a personality change in your family member as his or her gambling progresses?
  • Does your family member lie about his or her gambling?
  • Does your family member promise to stop yet gamble again and again?
  • Does your family member immediately return to chase losses?
  • Does your family member ever gamble longer than he or she intended to, until the last dollar is gone?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions your loved one may have a gambling problem.

To ensure confidentiality and avoid misdirected emails, I prefer the initial contact be by phone.
