Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Have you ever told yourself, I am hopeless and useless because I can’t stop drinking or using drugs because all of my intimate relationships are toxic or have you ever told yourself, I am hopeless and useless because all my intimate relationships are with emotionally unavailable people? My name is Bruce Harms. My passion and life calling in life as a clinical therapist and as a recovering person from several addictions is to help people have hope who have slipped into the hopeless mindset that plagues both chemically addicted people and the co-dependent person who is “addicted” to trying to control the substance abusing person. Let me help you find the true you in your life’s journey. Praise yourself for having the courage to perform one of the bravest acts in your life, reaching out for help when you feel hopeless and want to give up.
I have been a clinical therapist for the past 25 years who would love to help you find your true self through the therapeutic process of being side by side with you through the toughest time of grieving the loss of a chemical addiction or co-dependent behavior that once helped you cope with life. I am also passionate about helping teenagers overcome their daily challenges of this very confusing world by showing compassion for their daily struggles and offering them hope rather than lectures or advice. My experience as a substitute teacher of both middle and high school students has helped me learn how to connect with this challenging population.
I am also experienced at facilitation of therapy groups for adults and teenagers on the topics of chemical addiction, co-dependency, and self esteem. My goal is to help the patients run the groups with as little interference from me as possible in order for all group members to feel more ownership and hope in their lives through the process of group therapy. If you are sick and tired of suffering from your alcohol, drug, or co-dependency issues, you can stop this suffering and start your journey with a professional who has empathy for your pain and will give you the practical tools to overcome your pain and suffering.
